Dear Parents

We are very much looking forward to the return of all our children on Monday. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all parents, carers and grandparents for the support and hard work they have put into the children’s remote learning. It has been an extremely challenging time for the children, families and staff but the quality of work and communication has been remarkable, so thank you everyone. Hopefully now we look forward to religiously following the government roadmap so we reach that target of ‘normality’.

Please be reassured that our staff will provide the children with a warm welcome every day and will ensure that their emotional and mental well-being is the priority. We want you and your children to feel safe at St Wulstan’s and will continue to provide them with the excellent pastoral care that we pride ourselves on as well as ensuring that they are kept as physically safe as is manageable.

 

 

It is vital that you read through the full reopening letter uploaded to the website last week in detail to ensure the safety and well-being of our pupils, parents and staff. Just a reminder of some of the key points and also a few further updates in response to new government guidance.

 

 

  • Please ensure that you have provided the school office with any new contact information by by Monday 8 March.
  • On Monday morning the children will need to bring in all their Home Learning books, PE kits and if borrowed the DFE laptop.
  • As we are unable to hold face to face meetings between teacher and parents we will maintain your child’s class email system. Please note that emails received after 6pm will be answered the next working day and none over the weekend.
  • To ensure no crossing of ‘Bubbles’ the school office will not be accessible during arrival and dismissal periods so please email Mrs Brown or myself on secretary@wulsev.worcs.sch.uk or telephone 01299 877808
  • In accordance with government guidance the children will not need to wear face masks in school. If you wish your child to use one walking down to the main entrance please remove it and take away with you. Staff will wear masks in communal areas but not in class unless they are dealing with a first aid issue.
  • Please do not drive into or attempt to park in Elmfield Walk as this endanger families as they exit the school site.
  • It is absolutely essential that everyone adheres to their allocated arrival and dismissal time to ensure the safety of the children, staff and parents.
  • Please limit the amount of time you spend outside the school grounds either before or after you have dropped off/collected your children. Do not linger or stop to talk on the pavement or grass area before or after collecting you children.

 

 

We totally understand this is a worrying time for parents and wish to reassure you that we will do everything we can to ensure your children are happy, secure and safe in our care. It is extremely important that the systems we have put in place work effectively for everyone’s safety so please adhere to your allocated times and ensure any updated contact details are returned by Monday.

 

If you have any concerns at any time please do not hesitate to contact us via email or telephone.

 

We look forward to seeing you all Monday morning
