It has been lovely to see all the children back in school and able to move more freely around school. Just having every year group back in the dinner hall has been amazing. Brothers and sisters can see each other again during the school day and assemblies will begin again soon. All the children have settled into their new classes and have been sharing what they have been doing over the summer with staff.
We still have rigorous safety measures in place to help prevent the spread of Covid 19 and each class has been fitted with a CO2 monitor to ensure we maintain the maximum level of ventilation. Please see our risk assessment on the school website for more information about how we are operating: Beckfoot Nessfield Primary School and Nursery - School Information. If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact me.
In the Parental Survey many of you expressed the desire to know more about what your child is doing in school and be more involved. Therefore, we have been busy planning a calendar of events and opportunities for families to take part in their child’s learning. On Tuesday 21st September we are holding Meet the Teacher Meetings from 9.00 to 9.30am and 3.15 to 3.45pm for families to come and visit their child’s classroom and speak to their teacher. It is a chance to start building relationships between home and school. On Friday 24th September we will also be holding a McMillan Coffee Afternoon for children and families, so look out for more information on Class Dojo. Other events are planned across the first term. Dates are on the school website at Beckfoot Nessfield Primary School and Nursery - What's On.
We are looking for parents to be part of our Local School Committee (LSC). The role of the LSC is to be a critical friend of the school. The LSC will meet four times a year and is made up of parents and community members, an elected member of staff, the Headteacher and a Board director attached to Beckfoot. Our remit includes taking a particular interest in student welfare and wellbeing, staff welfare and wellbeing and parental engagement. We also examine and approve various school policies, review survey results and read and ask questions about the Headteacher’s academic and business reports. If you are interested in being a member of our LSC or have any questions, please email me: Linda.Hanson@beckfootnessfield.org
The weather since we have come back to school has been amazing (typical!). The Year 6 children on residential have been really lucky. They went off to Robinwood this morning really excited to have three days of adventures together. Fingers crossed that it holds out for the weekend!
