Dear Parents, 30th March 2022
Is it just me, or is the year really flying by? I can’t believe we are nearly ready for Easter holidays. School has been so busy this term, with most things now steadily getting back to normal. This has made us all feel much more positive, and the great weather has helped to!
In terms of Covid, we are still operating a risk assessment in school, even though in the rest of the world things seem to have gone completely back to normal! This has meant we still keep some year groups separate, and we haven’t had the whole school back together for assemblies yet. I hope we will get back to this in April. As I told you last time, we have had real challenges with staffing this term, and I know of several schools whose staff have been hit so badly they have had temporary closures. We have managed fairly well here, everyone has mucked in and been really flexible which has helped us no end. It is also a help that you have all supported the school by keeping your children at home when they have been ill. This is a fine line- we don’t want children to be at home unless they really have to be, as their good attendance is so vital to their progress, as well as their well being and social skills. Good attendance is something we are going to really focus on again after Easter.
On this note, you will see that there is a list of dates for next academic year on the reverse of this letter. We still have 3 inset days to add, which have not been decided yet. Please can I remind you that these holidays should be plenty enough for you to take your family holiday during the time school is closed. We have been terribly affected by pupils being absent from school this year due to family holidays. It may be tempting, but it really is to the detriment of the child’s education and is never authorised by school.
Our new website has finally launched! It is still being filled on a daily basis, and our twitter feed needs to be linked, but otherwise it is looking much more useful than the old one. Please take the time to check it out at:
www.kingsley.liverpool.sch.uk or follow us on Twitter at @KingsleyLpool
Finally, I have attached some other dates for your diary below:
End of Spring term- Friday 8th April 12.30pm
(Please note there are NO Nursery sessions in the morning or afternoon on the 8th)
Children return to school - Monday 25th April
Eid Party- More details to follow! Friday 6th May
Jubilee Party- More details also to follow! Friday 27th May
Half Term- school closed- 30th May- 3rd June.
We have a final inset day to arrange for this year, which we usually have to coincide with Eid. Once I have confirmed this date I will let you know, but it will be around the May holiday weekend.
