06.11.2020 Head Teacher’s Update for Families
Good afternoon all.
I hope you are well and have had a good week.
Apologies I haven’t been in touch all week but I have been in class. The upside of this has been spending time with some wonderful children and enjoying some time teaching. A genuine delight!
I have a couple of items to mention this week.
THANK YOU – FACE COVERING AND PHYSICAL DISTANCING
A huge thank you to the whole community for wearing your masks in the playground. It really supports us keep the risk of infection low so thank you for your support.
Please keep your mask on at ALL times when in the school grounds. This makes sure we are doing all we can to manage the risks.
We have a supply of disposable masks in school so if you would like some, please contact us at the school, either on email@example.com or 0131 669 3200.
Physical distancing is another way in which we can reduce the risk of infection. Please make sure you keep at least 2-metres from other adults if you are in the school grounds.
We would encourage parents and carers not to spend longer in the playground than they need to. So once you have dropped off your child and seen them away, please leave the grounds. Again it’s all about us reducing risk as you all know.
As these guidelines will be in place for the foreseeable future I will keep reminding you so we keep up our positive efforts.
TERMLY CLASS NEWSLETTERS
Your child’s teacher has uploaded this term’s newsletter on to the class TEAMS page. It has information about the focus of planned learning and reminders about allocated days for things like PE and Wildlife Garden sessions.
We will upload them onto the school website too so you can find them there.
PARENT AND CARER CONSULTATIONS – NEXT WEEK
Thank you to you for signing up for your appointment via TEAMs. Our teachers are looking forward to speaking to you.
Please make sure you are ready for your phone call or video call at least 5 minutes before your time so you have the full 10-minutes to speak to your child’s teacher.
UPDATE RE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF PLANNED WORKS
As you are aware, I have been in consultation with the Works Team, raising our concerns with regards to recent health and safety issues.
Following these meetings, the following has been agreed:
The fork lift truck will only be used between 7.30am and 8.15am every morning and 2.00 – 2.30pm on Tuesday afternoons. It will not be used in the school grounds to transport materials at any other time without prior agreement from me. We are keen to make sure the works continue to make progress but not at the detriment of our children’s safety.
There will be a secondary fence put in place at the far end of the Infact playground to ensure the children are kept at an appropriate distance from the works’ compound.
The Primary One children are now lining up parallel to the wall so they are not directly under the scaffolding.
There will be no work carried out whilst the children, and their adults, are in the playground.
I thanked Ashwood for their enthusiasm to put things right and hold regular review meetings with me. I look forward to there being increased awareness of health and safety around the children.
Please contact me if you have any further concerns or comments about the building works and I will speak to the supervisor, Alex about them to find a solution.
I hope you have a lovely weekend and manage to get out in the sunshine while it lasts.
Take care, keep well and stay in touch.
