Welcome to Remote Newsletter Number 9!
Our Bubbles have been working really well this week and everybody is very happy to be seeing children back in school. As we said last week, making the decision to send your child back in to school or not is a difficult one, but we firmly believe that the decision you make for your child will be the right one.
From Monday 22nd we are rearranging Bubbles so that we can accommodate more children. We still have a few places left in each Bubble so if your child is in Reception, Year 1 and Year 6, or you are a key worker, please get in touch. Also, if your child has received pastoral support from us in the past or you feel that they are struggling in any way, please call us and we can discuss possibilities. (Please be aware that we are still very limited to numbers (60 across the school and 15 in one bubble on any one day) so we may not be able to agree all requests.
As a reminder,please DO NOT send your children in to school if they have any symptoms related to Coronavirus or if anyone in the household is symptomatic. To keep our building virus-free it is crucial that you adhere to these guidelines. Thankyou. The poster and guidance on last week's newsletter is helpful if you are not sure.
Keeping our WELLBEING in Good Shape!
Thankyou to Rosie in Year 2 for this super drawing of Dennis the Menace and Gnasher!

Although we have some children in school, teachers are still working hard on their class pages. Keep your eyes peeled for new activities and ideas and if you need anything printed off, just call and we can help out. Daily Purple Mash activities will continue to be set - well done to all the children who are workng hard to complete these tasks.

Welcome to the Crestwood Park Family!
We would like you to join us in welcoming three new members of staff. Mrs Cope and Miss Edge are our new Teaching Assistants who joined us during the lockdown. They are doing a splendid job of supporting chilren in our Key Worker bubble and have already become part of the family.
In September we will be welcoming Miss Pryke who will be part of our teaching team in the new term.
We are sure you will make them all feel welcome and we look forward to being able to introduce them to you properly.
You may be wondering who your child(ren)'s teacher will be in September. Staffing is all finalised now so we can let you know next week- keep a look out for a sch.life message!
It's been really lovely to see some of our children and parents over the last two weeks. We also love hearing from you- please keep in touch and please ask if there is anything we can do to help.
We are constantly looking for ways to improve our school, and these recent months have been no exception. If you see something that other schools are doing and you think it could benefit our children and school community, then let us know- we're never afraid of pinching a good idea if it means our children are getting a better deal!
We hope the sunshine comes out for you over the weekend and that some of you get to see (and hug!) a member of your family that you might not have seen for some time.
Sending love to you all, take care and stay safe.
