School Risk Assessment September 2020 and Information for Parents

Thursday 9th July 2020

 

Dear Parents/Carers

 

I hope you are all keeping well and hoping like me that the sunshine will re-appear very soon!

 

This letter will contain some key information about

  • Transition into new years from September 2020
  • End of year reports for all children
  • Re-opening of school in September

 

Transition into new class from September 2020

Usually we give substantial time towards the end of the school year giving children an opportunity to spend time in their new classes with their new class teacher and learning support assistants. Unfortunately, due to the current school circumstances in relation to covid-19 we are not able to put this normal transition practice in place.

To try support transition under these circumstances we have made a ‘Welcome to your new class’ film for each class. These will include a ‘hello’ messages from class staff, virtual tour of the classroom and key school areas and some curriculum information. These will be available from Tuesday 14th July, via our class twitter accounts and our new youtube Chanel “stmTV”

 

Please watch these as many times as possible over the summer with your child/children to help them get ready for their new class. Teachers will also set a reading challenge to be completed over the summer.

End of year reports for all children

All class teachers have written school reports for each of the children in their class. These will be given out on Wednesday 15th July. Children currently in school will bring home a copy of their report and any siblings not present in school. All other reports will be posted via royal mail.

Accompanying these reports will be a personalised school award certificate for every child to celebrate their many talents and skills. In addition, a ‘hello ‘postcard with a personal message from their class teacher and learning assistant.

 

Re-opening of school in September

School will re-open for all pupils (Years 1,2,3,4,5 and 6) on Wednesday 2nd September.

School will re-open for Reception Class on Monday 7th September (additional information for parents/carers of Reception children has been sent out separately)

School will re-open for Nursery Children on Monday 7th September

 

Children are to return to school in full school uniform. It is compulsory for all children to return to school.

As you are aware the Prime Minister, Mr Boris Johnson, has stated that now the prevalence of covid-19 has decreased, the NHS Test and Trace system is up and running, and schools have been provided with clear guidance about the measures that must be put into place to create safer environments within schools – children returning to school is vital for children’s education and their well-being.

 

I wish to assure you as a school we are committed to fully implementing all the guidance provided by the government and Liverpool city council to keep our school as safe as possible.

We are in the process of putting together a school booklet on our full re-opening which will be available next week. A copy of this booklet will be placed inside your child’s/children’s report.

This booklet will share with you all arrangements and plans for September. If you have any questions once you have read this you can contact school via email: contact@stmichaelscatholicprimary.co.uk or telephone: 0151 263 8460.

 

Thank you for all your support. We are very excited and looking forward to welcoming all our children back to school in September.

Take and keep safe,

 

Alyson Rigby (Headteacher)
