Dear Parents/Carers

It has been lovely to see so many of you and your children this week coming to collect your child’s school report. I hope you have enjoyed looking through your child’s presentation books and celebrating their reports with them.  If you have not been able to collect your child’s report as yet, please can this be collected from school by Wednesday of next week.

I would just like to confirm the class arrangements for September are as follows

Reception – Miss Whyley

Reception – Mrs Hyland

Y1/2 – Mrs Agar

Y1/2 – Mrs Clarkson

Y1/2 – Miss Papworth

Y3 – Miss Richardson/Mrs Maule

Y3 – Mrs Johnson

Y4 – Mr Clarkson

Y4- Mrs Sherlock & Mrs Millard

Y5- Miss Howson with Mrs Radmall

Y5 – Mr Pickering

Y6 – Miss Jackson

Y6 – Mr Constantine


Please do not worry if you haven’t seen Miss Timney or Miss Todd’s name above. We will be using their extensive expertise to support learning and delivering ‘catch up programmes’ over the next academic year as part of the structures and strategies we are putting in place to support the recovery programme.

We have been working on plans for the full return to school in September and we will send all the details of this out to parents in the last week in August prior to school reopening on 8th September.

I can also confirm that it is our intention to reopen the Before and After school club from the week beginning 15th September. (This will allow us to ensure school is settled and in full operation first.)


Remote Learning

We have been very grateful for the many positive comments and support you have given regarding the home learning that has in place over this time.  The government have requested that we maintain plans for home learning in the new academic year, in the event of individual cases where children may need to isolate, whole class groups, or indeed local closures. (We sincerely hope that we will not require any of this.) Therefore, we are asking all parents to help us evaluate what we have had in place, so that we can ensure best practice going forwards. Please, please, complete a short survey which can be found on our school APP, via the Parents Evening Tile or online at (we have adapted our parents evening/school club booking system to programme this questionnaire).


Over the summer, we will not be posting any more work on the website, but we will leave, on the site, tasks and ideas that we have posted to date. Doodle, and Timetable Rockstar’s will continue to be available.

If you need to contact school over the summer, please use the school email address as this will be checked periodically.


Year 6 Leavers

A letter will be sent home with your Year 6 child today, this gives details of their final week.  A copy of this is also on our school website, under News and Events, Letters.


Dinner Money

Please can we ask that any outstanding dinner money is paid up to date. Year 6 parents, please ensure any outstanding dinner money is paid by Friday 17th July, if your child is taking a school meal up to the end of the school year please add this on to the balance you pay.   You are able to check on Sims Pay your child’s meal history and ensure when calculating the amount this includes the meal they last had and any future meals as it can take 24 hours to show. 


Summer Clubs

We have been liaising with a company and Snaith Sports Hall to implement a Summer Club provision for over the summer holidays.  We will be sending out further information regarding this next week.
