To all families who will be celebrating Eid-al Fitr
As the end of Ramadan fast approaches it would be really helpful if you could indicate whether or not your young person will be attending school on Wednesday and/or Thursday next week. This will enable us to plan staffing levels appropriately to ensure that the needs of all our young people are met.
The session will take place on Thursday 22nd April 2021 7PM-9PM
Letter to families 26.03.21
The days are lengthening, British Summer Time is just around the corner and it’s almost time for the Easter holidays to begin!
We have had a happy and productive Spring term and it has been such a pleasure to have an increasing number of students back in school each week and to once again feel the positive energy and enthusiasm that our young people collectively bring to St Ann’s. We are greatly looking forward to the last remaining small group of students returning to school in April so that we finally have a ‘full house’.
Please note the following information
Last day of term and an earlier finish time
Buses will pick up students from school at 2pm
Please make sure someone is at home to receive your young person at this earlier time
First day of Summer term
All students are expected back in school
Please ring the school office if your young person is unable to attend for any reason
Covid-19 Self Test Kits(These are for use on students who are not showing any signs of Covid-19 ie they are asymptomatic)
A pack of three tests is being sent home in a sealed box with this letter
An instruction leaflet is inside the box
If you feel that your young person can cope with safely having a test, please carry out the test on Sunday 18.04.21 ie the day before he/she returns to school.
If the test is negative no further action is necessary and your young person should start back to school.
If the test is positive you must report your result to the NHS (see page 15 of the instruction leaflet) and you will be given further information on the next steps to take. The whole family must then self isolate in accordance with current national guidance.
Remember these are voluntary tests but the government strongly recommends that they are regularly carried out.
Further test kits will be sent out by school in the coming weeks.
Please ring school and speak to the nursing team if you have any queries.
If your young person is not currently in school but you would like a self-test kit please make arrangements to pick one up from the school office.
Reports on student progress during the Spring term
These are being sent home by class teams next week
Many thanks for your ongoing support throughout the spring term. Please be assured that the education, health, safety and well being of your young person remains our highest priority at all times and every good wish for a peaceful and happy Easter break.
Ealing Council is providing financial support for students entitled to Free School Meals, see the letter
Please use the link below to access the latest edition of our Google form to indicate your preference regarding your young person’s educational provision for the next three weeks i.e. until Friday 12th February when the half term holiday begins.
As before you can indicate if you would like your young person to attend school or access home learning opportunities via St Ann’s website, home learning packs or live interactive sessions.
Please remember that we are all here to help and if you have any concerns please ring the office and ask for myself, Timmy or Mary (Deputy Headteachers) or you may prefer to have a conversation with your young person’s class teacher.
Please complete and submit this form even if you want your young person’s current provision to remain the same as this will help us to plan effectively and allocate staff appropriately.
Amidst all of the January gloom and everyone’s worries about the new variant Covid it has been great to welcome back students to school this week in spite of the third National Lockdown and to catch up with those families whose young person has remained at home.
During these uncertain times we know that family situations can change very quickly so we will be sending you regular Google forms so that you can let us know the sort of school provision that will help you most in the coming weeks.
Please take a few moments to complete and submit this new Google form below for the period 11.01.21 to 22.01.21 as this really helps us with planning and we hope will reassure you as to the provision available.
Keep well and do email or ring if there is anything that we can help with.
