We really appreciate the support and co-operation by many families who are helping to make our staggered morning and afternoons work well by keeping our year groups separate. By maintaining these separate times, children settle into class positively and get their day off to a good start.
During lockdown Ironbridge Fine Arts ran a children’s art competition judged by artist, Dave Gunning. Congratulations to Bella (Year 5) who won the Age 5 – 11 category with her picture “Plastic Polluted Seascape” to convey the message that throwing plastic into the ocean is killing our planet. Bella is pictured below with her winning, framed artwork.
Thank you for your support over the last few weeks pre-ordering school lunches. In discussion with the kitchen staff, the decision has been made that from next Monday (21st September) we will revert to the pre-Covid way of ordering hot school dinners – in class, on the day required by putting up a hand when asked by the teacher.
Parents will only need to pre-order lunch if children are having sandwiches on a Wednesday when there is no hot meal option. These should be ordered a week in advance.
If you have already returned an order form for next week (and future weeks) and your child has ordered a sandwich on a Wednesday, you do not need to resend the order into school.
Please ensure your child knows that they need to put their hand up in class each day if they would like a hot dinner. They also need to tell the teacher if they would prefer the vegetarian option.
A copy of the menu is attached below along with the sandwich order form for Wednesdays. These can also be found on the school website.
KS2 children have enjoyed playing on the new space net on the bottom playground at morning break and lunchtimes this week. Thank you again to Friends of Coalbrookdale for their contribution to the cost.
We would like to let parents know that children should not be playing on the space net after school due to the lack of adult supervision, to allow after-school clubs and Kids Club to use the bottom playground and to stop bubbles mixing.
Thank you for your support.
If you have not already done so, please return flu immunisation consent forms to the school office. The flu immunisation will take place in school on Monday 28th September.
Due to our staggered start/finish times for each class, the after-school clubs will finish at slightly different times depending on the year group:
Monday: Year 4 club will run 3.00pm – 4.00pm
Wednesday: Year 3 club will run 3.00pm – 4.00pm
Friday: Year 5 club will run 3.20pm – 4.20pm
Please notify school as soon as possible, if you or any member of your household has a COVID test, and are waiting for the results, please do not send your child/ren into school. If the test is confirmed as negative your child/ren can then return to school. Please send details of the result.
If the test is positive, please contact the school immediately and the whole household should self-isolate for 14 days.
