PRE SCHOOL PARENTS - PLEASE READ.
Unfortunately, due to 6 members of staff testing positive for COVID, pre-school will be CLOSED on Monday 14th March and Tuesday 15th March.

If your child is unwell or has ANY Covid symptoms we recommend that you get a Covid test.
Activities will be posted on Tapestry for the children for those 2 days and we will reassess the situation at the beginning of next week.
Did you go and see it??
Feeling super proud of our little Pre School team that won the Christmas 2021 Lightbox competition. Last week we presented with our award! Amazing work from the children and staff that help put it together x

Well done you lovely lot! 💙 🐻
PLEASE READ:
We have just received the following announcement from GLT regarding tomorrow and the forecast weather conditions:

Great Learners Trust Schools have been advised to move to remote learning on Friday 18th February, due to MET office warnings of dangerously high winds. We are concerned about the safety of children. parents and staff on the way to school in the morning, particularly those that walk or who use home to school transport. The school sites will therefore be closed to pupils.
We apologise to parents and carers for the inconvenience that this will undoubtedly cause, but our risk assessment of the potential for accident or injury requires us to take this step.
Schools are well prepared for the delivery of remote learning, and will implement these plans this evening.

At Bearbrook, our staff are currently working to ensure that remote learning will in place on Dojo/ Tapestry by 9.30am tomorrow morning. There is now an expectation that children should complete remote learning in the event of a school closure.
Have a great half term everyone 🙂
Don’t forget M***i tomorrow!! 🙂
Today is World Mental Health Day.

Don’t forget tomorrow’s small fundraiser for Bucks Mind who have supported us over the past few years.

The children will need to wear a bright coloured top (children to wear school skirts and trousers as usual) and bring in £1 to put in the bucket.

All proceeds raised will go to Bucks Mind.
Due to the increased number of positive COVID cases and advice from Public Health England we have made the hard decision to cancel Sports Day on Friday.
We are sorry for any disappointment this causes 😞
🚗 We are becoming increasingly concerned about the safety of the children at the beginning and end of the school day in the school staff car park and on the road near the main gates.

As from tomorrow, there will be cones on the yellow zigzag lines and in the school car park entrance gate to prevent people being able to park/ drop off children. We will be closely monitoring this as the safety of our families is our priority. Our barrier is up at the moment to create a safe space for parents and children to walk through ensuring social distancing.

✋ Please do not enter the school car park or park on the zig zag lines. 🛑

You may have heard today’s announcement from the government and we are so looking forward to welcoming back the rest of the school from the 8th March. Please do give us time as we will be reviewing all our risk assessments and putting together plans in order to protect all members of our community. The safety of our staff, parents and children is our number one priority. As soon as more information is given and guidance is released, we will let you know as soon as we can.

05/01/2021

Will try and post a few helpful things to do at home as we find them. Don’t forget to log on to Tapestry and Dojo to find out about the learning of the day.

Parents, we’ve got your back. 💪

Any questions, please do contact the school and we will try to answer them for you.

Please take care everyone, we realise this is going to be yet another challenging time for some of you and want you to know we are always here and will try and support you in any way we can 😌

This is information for parents and carers, pupils and college students about the national lockdown in England.

More details: http://gov.uk/coronavirus

03/01/2021

Please check your emails regarding the switch to online learning next week in GLT schools until the 8th January. As in the lockdown last year, children who are categorised as vulnerable and children of key workers may attend school for on-site learning. We will be asking parents / carers to notify us if this applies to you and your family.

As always, decisions like this are never easy to make but we hope all our school community understand why the Trust have made this decision.

Thank you for your support.

Such a lovely idea coming your way!!!
🎄 Christmas is coming! 🎄
From Monday, we are going to do an advent challenge. We have an advent calendar with pockets and each day we will be opening a pocket to reveal a challenge/ fun activity of the day!
These will be simple activities you can complete with your child at home! Staff will post to Tapestry each day to let you know the activity, and in turn, we would love for you to post back on Tapestry and maybe upload a photo or two?? If you unsure of how to do this, let us know!

01/11/2020

Following last nights new government information regarding a second lockdown, we have updated school guidelines.

• Drop off and pick up times will change as detailed in letter. **PLEASE SEE LETTER for more info**
• Only one adult per family to drop off and pick up to reduce numbers.
• All adults will wear a face mask/shield when dropping off and picking up. We would request that we are all mindful that some adults because of medical conditions etc. will not be able to wear face masks.
• Staff on gates will wear face masks/shields.
• When dropping off please do not enter the ‘hatched areas’ and respect distance between you and others.
• Please drop the children off and leave immediately. It is important we do not have any groups on the playground.
• All staff will be expected to wear face masks/shields when moving around school.

We understand that it’s the season for regular colds and runny noses but please remember the main symptoms of Covid that the government have advised. These are a high temperature, a new, continuous cough and a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.
Please see the useful flow diagram below if you’re unsure 👍

Colds, coughs and BACK TO SCHOOL

Requests for COVID testing is through the roof since schools went back, with many schools advising all kids with runny noses and colds to stay off and self isolate.
This is really difficult for parents, really hard for schools...and NHS 111 is overrun with calls to speak to doctors.

Today the @rcpch issued some new up to date (and evidence based) guidance for parents and schools.

Here I have made it into a simple flow chart to make it easier to understand.
