Information for new families joining Nursery / Reception – September 2020
The school is currently closed due to COVID-19 except for the children of key workers but hopefully you will find all the relevant information you need on our website.
Firstly, we would like to welcome you to Allen Edwards and we all look forward to seeing you in September.
Over the next few weeks you will receive a letter in the post containing the following information: -
school uniform leaflet* and
school uniform policy*.
We will also be offering home visits and stay and play sessions but these will be communicated when we know more information about when the school will reopen.
If you have any questions in the meantime please email: - email@example.com
*The Parent Handbook can be found in the Policies section and information on uniform can be found in the parent hub section.
The school is currently closed for the majority of pupils due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
All online learning for all pupils is uploaded daily to the school’s online platform Class Dojo which all pupils and parents have access to. Please try to respond at least weekly with a message or by uploading your child’s work. Any parents who we do not have regular contact with, will be called by a member of the Senior Leadership Team for a wellness check and to offer you any support.
The school is open for the following groups of pupils for emergency childcare:
Pupils of key worker parents who have no alternative childcare arrangements
Pupils with an Educational Health Care Plan
Pupils who have an allocated social worker or have a Child in Need or Child Protection Plan
Please consult this GOV.UK webpage for details of those currently considered key workers by Government.
A member of Senior Leadership team is currently on site each day. If you require any support for any reason, please call or email the school office. Alternatively, please message us via Class Dojo as this is being checked regularly throughout each day.
For parents of pupils entitled to Free School Meals, we currently are providing packed lunches which can be collected from the school office by 12:00pm each day. Ww are investigating other solutions to avoid parents having to collect daily. We will update as soon as we can on this.
Please stay safe and contact us if you are experiencing any difficulties.
