Year 6 event
Firstly, another big thank you to all of you for your support of the recent crisis. We are very proud of our Year 6s and they will be sorely missed. We wish you all luck!
We are provisionally booking a date of Friday 18th September @4pm- 5 pm for our event on the field, however, the current guidance still states:
H&S advice is that schools are advised not to hold events on school fields for children and families. Because schools will be arranging and hosting the activity, this is classed as a gathering and as it states in the last point, it is against the law to gather in groups larger than 30 people unless defined by law.
The view is that it would be extremely difficult for any school to be able to manage the controls that would need to be in place. Even with the activity on a large school field, toilet facilities and hand washing facilities would need to be available for staff, pupils and parents. Can I therefore please caution against events of this type.
As children will also be in their new secondary bubbles we will have to be mindful of this to.
Also, although we are planning a date, we might not be allowed to host it; Check the school website to see if we are going ahead with it. We will say yes or no the week before (Friday 11th)
Good evening parents and carers,
Please find attached our Governors letter for the end of this academic year.
We look forward to the new school year, with new challenges. We know that the school will continue to provide for all of our pupils, building friendships, encouraging perseverance and inspiring hope.
All of the governors of Donnington Wood CE Junior School wish all of you a safe and happy summer.
