Week Beginning 7th June
We have reached the May half term and today is the start of the one-week break. We hope you have lots of fun and exciting things planned to fill your week. The children have worked really hard this term and have made some good progress towards closing gaps and catching up on missed learning. We are very proud of them and you should be too.
Please may we remind you that if your child tests positive for COVID-19 within the first 2 days of the half-term break, you must let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org so we can assist in the identification of close contacts and advise those who need to self-isolate. Your child may have been infectious whilst in school and we have a responsibility to notify others that they may have potentially been exposed to the virus.
We are hopeful that our swimming pool will be back up and running after the half term break and swimming lessons will begin with odd number classes. If, for any reason, this cannot go ahead we will notify you by text.
At the Hayes we are committed to supporting vulnerable members of our school community and during the last year, the rise in domestic violence has been well documented. One of our parents is working closely with Women's Aid charities across the country to support women and children suffering from domestic abuse. In this regard she is appealing for your help and support to collect much needed items for victims and their families (see attached poster). To support this endeavour, during the first week back after the half term break, we will be placing a lid free donation box outside of the school office for you to donate the requested items for the charity. This will be collected by the charity on Friday 11th June. We thank you in advance of your donation to those experiencing difficult times.
We return to school on Monday 7th of June at normal time and we look forward to seeing you then.
Thank you for your ongoing support. Have a lovely break.
