Weekly Update

Friday, 3rd September 2021


Dear Parents/Carers,


It has been fantastic to welcome your children back to school this week. There is both a very excitable buzz around school as well as classrooms that are already focused and ready for a year of great learning. 


Below are a number of notices and reminders. Please do read them carefully:


Havering Schoolwear- PE T-Shirts

Due to International Travel restrictions as well as UK transport hold-ups, Havering Schoolwear are struggling to source a number of items, including our PE T-shirts. We would advise parents, for the time being, that if you need to order a new one, you either check the PTA supply or send your children into school in a plain white t-shirt until stocks become available again. At this point, we will expect children to wear the school t-shirt once more.


Music Lessons with Havering Music School 

We have had a number of children sign up to music lessons once again, which is fantastic. We are really proud of the excellent peripatetic music provision we have at our school and I know, as a musician myself, what a gift it is for a child to learn an instrument. If you have not taken up this opportunity yet, or your child is now starting in Year 1 so can begin these lessons, please do contact Havering Music school to find out more at: musicschool@havering.gov.uk


Toddler Group

Our Toddler Group will be resuming on Wednesday 15th September from 8:50-10:20. If you would like to sign up, please contact the School Office.  


Collection Time

A reminder that children will now be collected from 3:10pm. This ensures that we return to our pre-COVID school times. Please refrain from arriving at the school site too early, as this can create congestion outside of the school. We would be grateful if parents support us by observing the one-way systems, where they are in place. 


A few reminders for next week:

  • Swimming and PE Lessons begin next week. Children should come into school dressed in their PE Kit on their PE day. They should bring the Swimming Kit into school to get changed into on their swimming day. Swimming Hats are available on our ParentPay Shop, via. the school website.
  • Reception children begin on Monday with a shorter day, from 8:50 - 1pm and will then attend full time from Tuesday. Children should be dropped off and collected via. the Reception gate, where staff will be on hand to help direct children and parents through. 
  • On Wednesday, 8th September at 6pm, we have a parent meeting for the parents of those children attending the Year 6 Residential later this month. A zoom link will be sent out at the start of next week. 

We are incredibly excited for this coming term and the year ahead and how we will see your children experiencing 'Life in all its fullness', growing and thriving in heart, mind, body and spirit. 


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. I hope and pray you have a restful, safe and enjoyable weekend.


Kind regards,

Chris Speller

Head Teacher
