Letter from Gillian 25.6.21

Dear Parents/Carers

I hope that everyone remains well in spite of the rising number of Delta variant Covid infections in West London. At school we continue to be vigilant and on a daily basis we maintain our Covid secure measures. Staff are wearing face masks throughout the day, rooms are well ventilated, additional cleaning of high frequency touch surfaces continues and adults adhere to social distancing requirements whenever possible.

Please note that if a young person presents as being unwell with respiratory symptoms during the school day we will contact you and request that the students goes home and if possible has a PCR test so that we can keep everyone safe. We have not had a positive Covid-19 case in the school community since January.

Please also note the following information.

Summer Holiday Scheme

St Ann’s will be offering a summer scheme during the period Monday 26th July to Friday 30th July. As in previous years places will be limited but we hope to offer everyone who would like to attend, some days on our fun filled holiday scheme. More details to follow next week.
Consultation on earlier finish to the school day from September 2021

At the end of May we sent home a Parent/Carer Consultation on changing the finish time of the school day from 3.15pm to 3pm. To date 40 families have responded but because this is such an important decision we would like to invite anyone who hasn’t yet responded to do so. Please see the link on the text message sent to you this afternoon. Please disregard this message if you have already shared your views.
Year 14 students leaving dateAt the beginning of this school year, the Year 14 leaving date was published as being Wednesday 14th July, however because of the disrupted school year we feel it is more appropriate for all students to finish on the same day. The last day of term for all students is therefore Thursday 22nd July at 2pm.

Please ring the school office if you have any queries and in the meantime every good wish for a very pleasant weekend.
