Welcome to this week's newsletter!

Drop off and Pick up Playground Rules

With lockdown easing across the country, it is more important than ever that we do our bit to continue to keep community transmission rates down. Please remember that every adult should be wearing a mask when on the school site, to only send one adult to collect your child, and to keep your children with you. Please do not use our playground as a place to stop and chat - it's essential to keep moving through the one way system. Our school risk assessment remains in place and this is your way to help us. Our playground rules are shown below.

Online Safety

We are working to become a National Online Safety certified school and we need your help to achieve this.  Part of the process is engaging parents and carers with online safety education and we would really appreciate it if you would sign up to the website using the link below.  Once you have joined you will have access to a huge selection of information and resources for free.

Missing sports tops

Do you have any of these sports tops at home? If so, please bring them back into school next week.

Family Action Food Club

Year 1 Woodwork

The pupils in year 1 are enjoying their new woodwork area. If you have any offcuts of wood or spare nails you can donate for the children to use, please bring them round to Mulberry Class door in Playground 2. (No MDF or long planks please.) The children and teachers will be really grateful to receive them.

Next Wednesday, our "Bristol School Streets" pilot begins; Atlas Road and Raymend Road will be closed to incoming traffic at drop-off and pick-up times. If you have to drive, please remember to "Park & Stride" at the Brunel Pub car park. Have a lovely weekend - hopefully the weather will be a little better than today!
