October New Update

There will be a staffing change from January 2022. This is occurring as part of our strategic plan to reduce the number of classes with job share arrangements across the federation, should the opportunity arise. This has now arisen through the Walcott Job share being currently filled on a temporary basis.

From January Mrs Wheatley will be returning to full time teaching in Class Two. Mrs Osborne will be moving over to take up a position that has become available due to maternity cover arrangements at Walcott. This arrangement is a trial and will continue until October 2022.


Diary Dates

Diary dates can be found on the school website calendar. We are maintaining this carefully, and adding as many dates as we are aware of well in advance.

Covid Precautions

At the moment, levels of Covid are increasing and we are monitoring things carefully. We are following the guidance laid out by the local authority and should we get more than five positive cases within the school in a ten-day period will move to the next level of the plan which will see seating and mixing restrictions introduced. More than ten cases in a ten-day period will result in re introduction of bubbles and other measures.

Whilst we are planning for a number of events where parents are invited; these are all subject to Covid restrictions and we may need to abandon them or significantly tighten restrictions should the local picture change. We are looking carefully at the capacity of hall and church for events and we may have to restrict the number of family members who can attend.


Rain Forest Foundation

Class three children are organizing a variety of fund raising events to support the Rain Forest Foundation UK. This has been inspired by their current geography topic but is very much part of our wider work ‘Caring for God’s Earth’. The Rain Forest Foundation works with indigenous tribes to help them map, re plant and improve rainforests, this then helps their communities become more sustainable. This links in with the work we are doing to improve the school grounds with the garden and forest. We hope to plant more forest some time in November but is dependent on the delivery from the Woodland Trust. Hopefully this work will really resonate with the children at a time when the environment is in such focus in the news.
