Whole School Information Letter 10.06.21

Thursday 10th June 2021 Dear Parents, The children have returned extremely positively following the half term break and have rapidly settled back into their established routines and as ever have adapted quickly to any slight changes to their week in school. We as a school are really aiming to keep things as familiar and consistent for the children as we possibly can, after what has been another unsettled year for everyone. Years 1&2 particularly deserve a mention this week for their exemplary behaviour as they began their swimming lessons, despite the incredible levels of excitement best reflected when one child exclaimed to me on Tuesday morning, “We’re going swimming today… at long last!” Although we are still unsure about many aspects of how schools will need to operate when we begin the next academic year and what COVID-19 safety measures will still need to be in place, we have finalised our class and staffing structure and are now in a position to be able to share them with you. We always aim to share these with our families as soon as we possibly can each year and are pleased that despite the continuing challenges we all are facing as result of the pandemic, we are able to inform our families at a similar time as we normally do. Classroom Arrangements for 2021/22 Cats Class: Miss Hughes will be remaining in her current classroom for next year with Reception & Year 1. Miss Hughes will continue to be supported by Mrs Denney, Mrs Harrington & Mrs Freeman. Chimps Class: Mrs Komor will be teaching Year 2 & Year 3. Mrs Komor will be supported by Mrs Castle & Mrs Annis. Cockatoos Class: Mrs Jones will be teaching Year 4 and will be supported by Mr Ramus. Chameleons Class: Mrs Hunt will be teaching Year 5 and will be supported by Mrs Brown. Your child’s class teacher for the next school year will also be writing to you today. Should you have any questions regarding the upcoming year please feel free to email your child’s new teacher via their email addresses, or the office email address so they can be passed on. They will reply as soon as they can, and will be very happy to help with any queries they are able to answer. However, we do ask for your understanding if we cannot answer questions which we normally would expect to be able to, as we await further guidance on how schools will be able to operate from September. Tel: 01386 860 246 Cropthorne with Charlton C of E First School, Main Street, Cropthorne, Pershore, Worcestershire, WR10 3NB. The children will, as in previous years take part in a ‘Moving Up Day’ where they spend the day with the adults and children they will be working with next year. This takes place on Wednesday 30th June, which is the same day as our soon to be Year 6 children will spend at their Middle Schools. We will also be welcoming our new Reception cohort on this day as part of their transition up to First School. In the meantime, we all look forward to a positive and productive half term ahead. Yours Sincerely, Rob Bothma Headteacher
