Robinwood

18th September 2020

Message to all Y6 parents.

School has managed to re-book the cancelled Y6 residential trip to Robinwood. The new date is 18th – 20th June 2021. As you can imagine, there were very few dates left for schools to re-book and therefore the dates school has chosen fall on a weekend. The children will leave for Robinwood on the morning of Friday 18th June and return to school on Sunday 20th June at around 3.00pm. You will receive more details of the trip nearer the time.

For those that owe a balance please can you transfer this by Wednesday 31st March. Please transfer this to :-

Class 6V

Dear Parent

I have only just been informed of a positive case of Coronavirus in 6V.

The procedure is that the class bubble will close for 14 days from today – the children will be expected to return to school on Tuesday 29th September. Your child needs to remain at home during this period but does not need to have a coronavirus test. As having a test will not change the need to isolate.

However, if your child becomes ill with symptoms of coronavirus the 14 day isolation period begins again from the day your child displayed symptoms.

You will shortly receive a more detailed email informing you of what you must now do. School will be in touch soon to organise remote learning for your child during this time. Please be patient with us as we endeavour to support you and your child. If you need any further advice please contact school.

Thank you
Mr Callaghan

Message from St. Gabriel’s

“Can you please let your Year 6 parents know that if they want their child to come to St Gabriel’s we will need baptismal certificates as soon as possible otherwise I will have to put them in a category which may mean they don’t get a place.
