Head Teacher's Message

Head Teacher

Dear Parents & Carers

A big thank you for all your support this half term. We’ve very much enjoyed having the students back in school these past few weeks.

During the Easter break, please remember to continue to test your child for Covid on Mondays and Thursdays and let us know the result by responding to the email we’ll send you via SchoolPost. You also need to report the result to the NHS on Gov.uk.

Your child should have brought home more test kits this week. If, for any reason, you don’t have enough test kits, please contact our Covid Operations Manager on buswell.s@myton.co.uk who will be able to provide you with some. Mr Buswell will be in school from Wednesday 7 April.

If your child does test positive, you only need to let us know (by submitting our Positive Covid-19 Test – School Notification Form) if their first symptoms were before Sunday 4 March. From Monday 12 April onwards, please report all cases as normal. (more…)

Find out more and apply for funding on the Westham House Fund website.

Road safety

As you probably know, the road outside school gets incredibly busy, especially at the start and end of the day, and we’re worried about the risk of accidents. We’re making another plea to parents to do the following:

If your child cycles to school please make sure their cycling skills and road awareness are up to scratch, that they know when to stop and look for traffic, that they wear a helmet and don’t wear headphones. Perhaps over the Easter holidays you could go on a bike ride with your child and give them tips on what to do in a busy situation? (more…)
