Update from Mrs Mawson
I hope you are all keeping well. It’s quite unbelievable that three months have passed by since the school building closed for most children. I know that it has been a challenging time balancing a combination of running a home, working, caring for families as well as helping keep the children busy AND learning. I’m sure there’s lots more too.
I am proud that even though the building has been closed for most, our school community has stayed connected – through phone calls, doorstep visits, work collection and zoom calls. I hope that both you and your children have felt supported and still part of the school community. If you have any comments to make about this, positive or negative, please let us know through the website, email – email@example.com or by phone on 01274 363070. I always appreciate your feedback.
As you know, our school has remained open for key worker children since March and on June 8th, as per the government guidance, we welcomed back Year 1 and Year 6 children, into small “bubbles” of 8 children. I am very proud of the children who have adapted so well to the new routines in school.
We did not fill all of the year 1 and 6 bubbles and so for the remainder of this term, we have contacted some children in year 5 to attend school for the last three weeks of term. We would have loved to invite all children back to school but unfortunately given the current safety rules and regulations, this just is not possible and so we will not be opening any more bubbles.
We are very hopeful that we can start the new school year with all children back in September. We can’t wait to see everyone. We don’t yet know for sure whether September will be “back to normal” or whether it will still be a bit different but Boris Johnson has said that it is his goal for all children to be able to come back. We are waiting to find out the government’s plans for this so we can work out how to do it as safely as possible and as soon as we know, we will tell you.
Whatever September looks like, there are some things you need to know. If you need any more information about any of these things – please contact us.
School uniform is purchased via our school website Beckfoot Heaton Primary School.
It is not available to purchase at the Cash Office.
• You can either select for the uniform to be delivered to your home address which will have a delivery charge or for it to be delivered to school. If you choose for it to be delivered to school Miss Willoughby will be in contact to arrange collection.
• When ordering your child’s uniform please ensure you put their full name and current class.
Rather than send an end of year report this year, your teacher will be sending a personal ping message in the last week of term.
We are very sad that this is cancelled this year – its always a lovely celebration of your children’s work.
Y6 Leavers Celebrations
We have some lovely plans … more information to follow for year 6.
you will be sent a letter telling you your child’s teacher for next year. We have a dedicated and talented team here, so I am sure that your children will be delighted.
