Summer term like no other...

Summer term 2020 started today - a summer term like no other.  We hope you have had a good Easter break with possibly some chocolate treats....


We have been listening to your feedback and have been thinking about how we can continue to support children, while they need to be at home, with their learning.  We have decided to send out packs to all of our pupils with some ideas, in addition to this we will be adding daily ideas to the website.  Our intention is to enable you as much flexibility as you need, but to provide some structure to your week too.  Please do not put yourselves under any pressure - use these unprecedented times as an opportunity to explore, be imaginative and find your inner creativity!!  Please continue to use the email addresses or Dojo system to keep in contact with your child's class teacher. 


We have been working hard to get Free School Meal vouchers out to all eligible families.  This has been a challenge in the timescale and we understand that the site is frustrating to access, please be patient and keep trying if you get error messages as we do know families are managing to get their vouchers now.  If you have not received anything from Edenred, the company supplying the voucher codes, please contact the school office and we will do our best to follow up any issues arising.


We are receiving many queries about when school will be fully open again.  As a school we do not have any information other than that given in the daily briefings from the government.  As soon as we have any further details we will be in touch.


For those families who have received letters to say your child has a place at our school in September - we are delighted you have chosen Short Wood.  We would normally be letting you know about our transition programme, however at present this is on hold until we are aware of how and when school will fully reopen.  We will be in touch as soon as we know any further details.


We have been thrilled to see so many people sending in information for our Community Learning page, sharing your learning at home is a pleasure.  As a staff we really miss seeing the children everyday and love seeing what they have been doing.


Please continue to take care of yourselves by staying at home if possible.  We continue to be here at Short Wood so please do get in touch if we can be of any support.
