ST. BRIDGET'S BUDDIES NEW TELEPHONE NUMBER IS 07985 657 578
Half term has nearly arrived. It has been a long eight weeks and the some of the children look weary and in need of a rest. I think some of the staff are ready for a rest too. We have dealt with some exceptional challenges but slowly we have become more accustomed to a new way of working within school and we are trying to do some more of the normal things. Assemblies online are now a common feature in school and this week we had our first online assembly for KS2 with St. Bridget’s Church. During this week’s whole school assembly, we talked about safely walking to and from school, as well as the importance of wearing/carrying something bright that is easily seen. It is a simple message but the statistics suggest that children between the ages of 10-16 are more likely to have an accident due to not being easily seen when out and about.
Farewell to Mrs Roberts
Today we said goodbye to Mrs Roberts. Mrs Roberts has worked at St. Bridget’s for 11 years as a teaching assistant. In this time, she has supported a number of children on an individual basis as well as working more generally in the class. We will all miss her and wish her well as she goes to be nearer family in Newcastle.
Harvest Festival – Video and donations
For Harvest Festival this year we have put together a video from classes across the school. It gives you a flavour of the things that we have been talking about in school. The video is on our website under the school life tab or using this link Harvest Video. Normally at this time of year we ask the children to collect food that we deliver to the Food Bank. This year we are asking that you drop off something extra in the trolleys that most supermarkets have by their exits. We have contacted Morrisons and they support six foodbanks.
Emergency contacts over half term
Over half term we will be using the emergency contact email if you need to report any cases of Covid infection in your family to school. This will be checked daily and we will get in touch if there is a concern or actions that need to be taken. firstname.lastname@example.org
No to holiday hunger
I have been contacted by the owners of Aubergine Café who are supporting the “no to holiday hunger” campaign. Please use this link or share this link if you know that this would help a family. https://www.aubergine.cafe/kids. I am happy to promote/share details of any other company/restaurant that is able to support this cause. Please use the emergency contact email above.
Parent meetings week beginning 16th November
This year we will be holding all of our parents’ meetings remotely. We will be using Parents Evening System by School Cloud. Closer to the time we will give you information about how to book an appointment and how the system will work.
Parents Association update
I am pleased to report the PA have had their first virtual meeting. We are not able to do the usual events this year but we are aiming to produce T-towels with all of the children’s names on, in time for Christmas. Later on, in the term we have also discussed the idea of a school quiz evening. We will keep you informed.
- Hopefully most of us are in a good routine. We understand that sometimes items need to be dropped off to school, such as lunch for children with food allergies. We are trying to reduce the items that are delivered through the school office (part of infection control) and where possible we can provide any forgotten items to the children.
- Could all parents/guardians please be aware that we require one week’s notice of any change to packed lunches from school dinners and vice versa. We also do not allow children to come in on odd days for school lunches. For future reference please email email@example.com to notify of any changes.
With best wishes to all our families at this time,
Neil Le Feuvre
