Connect Academy Trust Covid-19 Notice to all Visitors and Suppliers

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.

Phonics Screening Check Information for Parents - Year 2



Please read the following document for information on the Phonics Screening Check that will take place at the end of November. We have been working with the children to best prepare them for this check and this is something they are now familiar with as part of their day-to-day phonics learning. The Phonics Screening Check will be carried out in a supportive, stress-free way for the children with their class teacher. There will even be a reward for each child too.

For the foreseeable future, the children will not have a 'contact book' so please feel free to contact me via Twitter. You can do this by 'tweeting' on the class page or through a private message which will be sent directly to my inbox.
