Thank you for continuing to send your children into school every day this term, despite your concerns about the continuing pandemic and balancing challenging family, school and work situations. Our school community has been amazing! Your continued support and confidence in the measures we have put in to place to keep your children healthy and safe have ensured that our whole school attendance is currently 95%. This is a very positive situation for Bowmansgreen pupils that we hope to at least continue, if not improve, next term.
Your child came home with workbooks today, to support their remote learning, should your family need to self-isolate or new National Restrictions are put in place. These books supplement the online remote learning that is published weekly, during term-time, on our school website.
If your child tests positive for COVID-19 at any point during the Christmas break, please notify school as soon as possible so that we can complete the relevant track and trace process with Public Health England. If required, we will then notify any other children or staff who have been close contacts and who need to self-isolate.
From today, we ask that you notify the school if your child tests positive, via the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
This email address is to be used for this purpose only and will be monitored until Christmas Eve. Please do not call the school phone number or email admin@ as they will not be answered/covered during the Christmas holiday.
Remember, as soon as your child or any member of your household develops symptoms, they must start self-isolating immediately and book a test regardless of it being Christmas. If you are unsure whether symptoms suggest COVID-19 or an everyday cough or cold, you can consult this online NHS symptom checker: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/symptoms/
Please take part in our Health, Relationships and Sex Education questionnaire, as part of our consultation to help shape and inform our new policies.
A Merry Christmas message from London Colney Parish Council… with a special mention for Bowmansgreen. Thank you and well done to Mrs Street, Zara and Lacey for representing Bowmansgreen so well.
Despite all of the very serious, confusing and sad news and events happening all around us, our school community has still managed to thrive this term. Pupils have worked hard, had fun, enjoyed being with each other and achieved a state of normality that seems to be working.
This week has been busy! Pupils have enjoyed pantomimes, parties, a delicious Christmas lunch, concerts and performances. Staff and pupils are exhausted – it has been a very long, often challenging term. Thank you everyone, for hanging in there and making it over the finish line today. A well deserved break is welcomed by everyone!
Well done and thank you House Captains, for helping to serve Christmas lunch to the whole school – great job!
As always, thank you for all of the cards, goodies and presents for staff – they are very much appreciated.
From all of the staff and governors at Bowmansgreen, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a healthy, happy and safe New Year.
Roll on 2021!
