Welcome to our Weekly Newsletter!
Happy New Year and welcome back! It's been great to see the children this week. It's obviously been a tricky time for lots of families as the new COVID variant seems to be spreading quickly- we really appreciate the communication from parents and families- please keep speaking to us if you have any questions or worries. As you will probably already know, the guidance around PCR tests changes on the 11th (Tuesday)- when this comes into force officially we will send out a reminder of the new process and timings for testing and isolation.
We've had a busy first few days back and finished with a super ABC assembly- as a polite reminder, these are only open to parents whose children are receiving certificates (you will get a sch.life message from class teachers if this is the case).
Well done to the Panda House team who achieved the most house points last term- they were rewarded with a extra special cupcake at lunchtime!
Congratulations to the pupils below who have achieved 100% attendance this week!

A message from our Pastoral Team...
We hope you have all had a fantastic start to the New Year. I know we have had a lovely week welcoming your children back to school and catching up on all of their exciting christmas news! We are aware that many children will have received computers and phones as gifts this year and so we thought it would be a good time to think about safety and wellbeing when using devices. With this in mind we have attached some links below with some really good ideas on how to enjoy the internet together safely, with lots of practical tips on how to manage screentime, settings and digital wellbeing. We hope you find them useful.
Have a lovely weekend and we look forward to seeing you all on Monday .

Our Parent Voice group is there for parents and carers to discuss, ask questions and support the running of the school.
The aim of the group is to do exactly what the name suggests- give parents a voice!
The next meeting will be held in school on Friday 4th March at 9.00am.

A Warm Welcome!
We'd like to welcome Mrs Snape who has joined our Crestwood Park team. Mrs Snape is supporting children in Year 3 and has already made a fantastic start to her time here. We are sure you would like to join us in wishing her a very warm welcome.
We hope the weather isn't too chilly over the weekend and that you all get some catawampus air and perhaps a little sunshine! Please look after each other- we look forward to seeing you all on Monday morning (after doing LFTs beforehand please!)
