27.04.22 Newsletter Y6 SATs, Eid, School holidays and COVID Guidance & Risk Assessment
Reedley Primary School - Achieving Today For Tomorrow`s World
It is Y6 SATs week the week beginning 09.05.22. It is vitally important that all Y6 children are in school that week to take their tests. They have been working really hard for them all year, and it’s important that they have the opportunity to show all that they have learned, not just in Y6 but in all their time at primary school.
If you have a child in Y6, please make sure that they get plenty of sleep (early nights once Eid is over!), and that they are as calm and focused as they can be. There is absolutely nothing at all for them to worry about. They just need to come into school and do their very best.
School closes on Friday (29.04.22) and re-opens for children on Friday next week (06.05.22). It is really important that children are back in school next Friday, especially if they are in Y6, as it will be their last school day before SATs.
I know that lots of families will be celebrating Eid-al-Fitr next week. From everybody at Reedley, we wish you all a very Happy Eid!
Enjoy celebrating with friends, with family and with loved ones. Hopefully, you will be able to enjoy a ‘normal’ Eid, with absolutely no COVID restrictions!
News Mrs Lambert (Gecko Class) will be leaving Reedley Primary School next Friday (06.05.22). She has secured a job closer to home. I’m sure you will join me in wishing her well in the future, and much happiness in her new school. Mrs Campbell will be teaching Gecko Class until the end of the school year. Mrs Campbell knows the class really well as she has covered it for many months this year. She will enjoy working with them for the rest of the term.
COVID Guidance & Risk Assessment
A copy of the new guidance and risk assessment is on the school website for your information. Everything in school is now back to ‘normal’ apart from assemblies. We are not holding any whole school assemblies for the rest of this school year, but are now holding Key Stage assemblies.
The other three things that we are being particularly careful about are keeping rooms well-ventilated, maintaining good hand hygiene, and allowing staff to wear face coverings if they wish too, particularly in communal / more crowded areas.
We will continue to wear masks on the gate in the mornings and afternoons, as it’s so busy with so many people. If you would like to keep wearing them, then that’s absolutely fine.
