Week 1 Update

Thank you all so much for your trust and support you have shown in the work of our school during this difficult time. I am confident the children have relaxed into the new systems and enjoyed their first week. Our core values of hope, perseverance and friendship have truly been on display this week as we return to school life again.

Phone calls

We work in partnership to support you and your child in their school learning, so we will begin to make phone calls home this week. Class teachers will try and ring every parent of their pupils during these initial 4 weeks. This is a brief opportunity to discuss how they have settled in and to answer any questions you may have.

Next Week

Breakfast club

Please text us to book a breakfast club place. You must book in advance. It will run from 7:45, and your child must arrive by 7:55. They will be temperature checked and sat only within their bubble ensuring a safe 2m distance away from others. The cost is: £1:50 a day or £6 for week.


Thank you to the VAST majority of people who are not driving up the road to the gates. Demolition work on the adjacent flats is set to start soon, and I will be out again asking those last few to not drive up the road.


Next week we will send out Year 3 PE kits and a letter about PE lessons. This will include the timetable and how we will keep your child safe. PE lessons will then start the week after and PE clubs will follow shortly in a safe way. On their PE days pupils come to school in their kits.


We are rolling this online learning tool out to all pupils. By the end of next week you will be able to ask your child to show your their accounts and the work they have done. We will set up family access at a later date.


We will be sorting out parent pay for email notes and payments soon.

It is a great privilege to lead our school though this time of crisis and I am proud of everyone’s determination to succeed and stay safe.

If you have any questions or issues, please text us and we will ring you back when we can.

Thank you

Mr Fox and TEAM Donnington
