End of Term 6's newsletter to all


Transition: Monday 20th July

On Monday 20th July we will be opening the school on a rota basis so that children are able to come in and see some of their friends ,their current teacher and teaching assistant and their new teaching team. This will be an opportunity for children to say goodbye to their current teacher and to meet their new teacher in readiness for September. 

Text messages have been sent out with children's timeslots. Please email Mrs G ( if you are unsure.  You will need to arrive at your designated entrance at the time given as we have new groups entering and leaving throughout the day. Likewise pick up time will need to be prompt. Parents are not to stay on site after dropping children off.
This is for children in Current Years R - 5. 
Children will be in groups of no more than 15 and will remain in their current classroom during their time in school.
Year R and 1 will enter and pick up from the KS1 playground.
Year 2 and Year 3 will enter and pick through the doors next to the office.
Year 4 and 5 will enter and pick up through the KS2 playground.  

Please can we ask that you maintain social distancing while waiting to drop off and collect your child and not remain on the playgrounds or outside the gates once you have collected your child from school.
Unfortunately due to the complexities of organising this we are unable to change any timeslots given.

Please can children not bring anything in with them apart from a smile, their water bottle and a small bag so they are able to take home any personal belongings from their trays or their lockers. 

If you have any School reading books at home there will be boxes at each entrance for you to drop the books into (no book bags please).  

We look forward to seeing everyone on Monday.  


 GOVERNMENT UPDATE: The NHS Test & Trace service has been launched.  You can check out our graphic to see how the system works, and if you might be affected.


A little something from the wonderful team at Sandown... enjoy!
