Our schools are minimising the number of visitors they receive, as well as the amount of time visitors spend on the school premises, during the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. This will help to minimise group mixing and make it easier to maintain social distancing in school.
We expect all visitors to: 1. only visit the school premises if absolutely necessary. Please phone instead, request a call or request an online meeting if possible. 2. not enter the premises if you or any members of your household have symptoms of coronavirus. 3. clean your hands with alcohol gel (provided) when you enter and leave the building. 4. follow the same procedures as those in place for staff, ie social distancing (2m), avoid touching surfaces and do not enter areas of the school without the permission of staff.
Thank you for your support in keeping our pupils, staff and families safe.
Family Support Adviser
Hi, my name is Sarah and I am your Family Support Adviser at Widey Court Primary School.
I am here to support all of the families at Widey Court. Please contact me with any questions or issues that you may have, however small, relating to home or school issues. If I don't know the answer to your query I can find out for you.
I can support you in lots of different ways. All meetings and discussions with me are strictly confidential unless there is concern for the well being of either yourself, your child/children or another person.
You can contact me by texting or calling me on 07565175721, by emailing me at: email@example.com or by posting your name and number into my postbox which is located just inside the school reception area. I am happy to meet you in school, your home or another location.
Service Family Support
I am based in school to support ALL of our families but I do run clubs purely to support our service children. I run a lunchtime club called "KIT" this is a drop-in club for children and stands for "Keeping in Touch". This is run for KS1 children on a Tuesday lunchtime, for KS2 children on a Thursday lunchtime and from 2pm - 2.30pm on a Tuesday afternoon for Foundation stage children. I also arrange events and days out for our service families.
Celebrating our service school status
I look forward to meeting you!
Following their involvement with ‘Art Squadron’, where Service families created some art for Bishopp Lodge, Mrs Maiden and Mrs Dawes went to the Tate Modern to tell others about the project.
Art Squadron is run over 8 weeks and aims to get families talking about issues such as deployment in an environment where they can feel comfortable and then produce a piece of fine art depicting those issues.
At Widey we made a film about our experience of the project along with a piece of music. Please click below to watch the film and listen to the music.
Tate Modern has a gallery for Tate Exchange, where visiting groups get to exhibit their work. Art Squadron produced origami fortune-tellers, to convey to visitors the unpredictable nature of Service life for families.
“All set up and waiting to open”
People got very inventive with the fortune tellers!
