We’ve come to the end of another school year, and what a year! The only event I was expecting when we started in September was Ofsted.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all members of our school community for their hard work and resilience over the last 5 months.
Thank you children for all your home learning, your enthusiasm and for returning to school in June to make the classrooms and corridors fill with your voices again.
Some of you have been in school since lockdown began on 20th March – thank you for your resilience and flexibility.
Thank you parents and carers for your support for school, and for your unending flexibility with juggling home learning alongside work and running a home. I’ve spoken to many of you by phone over the last few months and know how hard you’ve been working to support home learning. Thank you also for your confidence in school and for sending your FS2, Y1 and Y6 children back to school in June.
Thank you to all staff for their incredible hard work and flexibility which has enabled school to remain open for children of Key Workers (including through the Easter and half term holidays); enabled us to welcome back so many FS2, Y1 and Y6 children, and provide more places for children of Key Workers; also for providing home learning throughout school closure and partial closure.
Before this term comes to an end, there are a couple of reminders: please remember to collect any medication from the school office, also if you think your child has lost an item of school clothing please come and look through lost property – we’ll place outside the front entrance (please maintain social distancing). Any clothing left at the end of the term will be donated to charity.
Finally, we need to say some goodbyes.
As we wave farewell to our Year 6 children, everyone at CPPS wishes all children the very best as they move to the next stage in their education: Good Luck, we’ll miss you and wish you all the best.
Mrs Causton and Mrs Vinten are retiring after many years at CPPS. Thank you both for everything you’ve done for the children of Covingham, enjoy your retirement and relax!
Miss White is moving on to pastures new, good luck with your new role.
Have a wonderful summer and we’ll see you in September (except Y6!)
This term ends on Wednesday 22.07.2020: 12:30 for FS2; 12:45 for Y1; 1pm for Y6 and Key Worker bubbles.
The new term begins on Wednesday 2nd September 2020, please see the letter from 16.07.2020 for start times.
With Kindest Regards
Mrs Caroline Polley
