Message from Miss Ford 3.7.20
Dear parents, carers and all my Lawns Parkers,
Another week has gone by and some of you may be looking forward to visiting a restaurant or pub this
weekend? That will feel strange.
You will now have an idea of when your child will be meeting their new teacher and what the final
arrangements are from the letter you received on Thursday. It all seems very regimented I know but it is
the only way to keep you, your children and my staff safe.
Usually at this time of year we would be competing in the Lawns Park Sports Day activities.
Unfortunately, we can’t all participate in one place together, but we can have a virtual sports day on
Wednesday July 8th, which would have been our Sports Day. Please check the PE and Sports Blog on the PE and Sports Premium page on the drop-down tab under “Key Information” on our website for details of this event. Get involved, stay active and get fit at the same time!
The government have just released further guidance about coming back to school in September. Please see the link below or go to our Parents webpage for useful links:
All being well we will all be back together again in September which is great news! There will still be
some restrictions to keep us safe. The intention is that each class of 30 will be treated as a pod or bubble meaning that different classes cannot mix altogether at playtimes, lunchtimes or assemblies for
instance. I think that we will also be looking at staggered starting and finishing times to the day too.
We will be working as hard as we can to organise routines and spaces in school so that we comply with
government guidance and the risk assessment from our Local Education Authority. As soon as we have
more details, we will inform you.
The children I have seen, seem to have grown very quickly, so you might have to start thinking about
uniform and shoes ready for a September start. Don’t forget that you can order school uniform from our
online uniform shop by clicking on the parents’ page
You may also be interested to read the latest letter to parents and carers from the Director of Children
and Families for Leeds, updating you on the current situation for schools and thanking you again for the
challenging but fabulous job you are doing at home with your children. This is on our website in the
news and events section in newsletters.
Please keep sending your pictures related to the themes and any sports day activities, challenges or the work set on the timetables and web pages, we really enjoy seeing what you are up to because we are missing you. Your new teachers can’t wait to read your letters so please remember to send them in
using the email address that you usually use and we will forward them to your new teacher.
Remember we are here to help, please call us.
Keep smiling and stay healthy, active and show Mr Brown what you can do!
