Despite the snow over the weekend, we are still planning to be open tomorrow for those children we were expecting. Staff will be in to clear paths in the morning. Should this plan need to change, we will inform you via this page and our Facebook page. Keeping our fingers crossed that we have no more snow overnight!
If your child usually has a coloured overlay in school, they might find it useful to change the screen settings to match if they are using a laptop/tablet. Here is a PDF which explains different ways depending on which device they are using. Colour-or-tint-your-screen or the following website provides a free tint for Windows laptops: https://www.aurelitec.com/colorveil/windows/

Unfortunately a parent of a Y6 pupil has informed us today that their child has been tested and has received a positive Covid test result.
All Y6 children who were in school last week on Wednesday 13th, Thursday 14th and Friday 15th MUST now isolate and are not allowed out of their home until Monday 25th January.
Siblings and families of Y6 pupils who were in school do not need to isolate unless you have symptoms. Further information will be emailed to parents directly from the Telford and Wrekin Health Protection Hub.
Thank you for your ongoing support. As you can imagine, this is a difficult situation which we are working through with the support of Telford and Wrekin Health Protection Hub.
Good Morning, unfortunately we are having to shut the Y6 bubble today. We will contact parents later with further information once we have spoken to the Health Protection Hub. Thank you.
Here is this week’s Wellbeing Pack:

Have a lovely week and enjoy!

Hopes and fears.
Not so long ago many of us shared in singing the Christmas Carol, ‘O Little Town of Bethlehem’. In that carol there is the line; ‘The hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee tonight’.
We live in a time of hopes and fears. The roll out of the vaccinations against Covid 19 is happening and is a cause for great hope but at the same time we are seeing levels of infection, hospital admissions and sadly deaths like never before. It is a battle to hold on to the hope when we are surrounded by fear. But hope is stronger than fear. Hope is all around us in the way we look out for and look after each other. Every smile and kind gesture, every helpful act is a statement of hope. We need to be careful but not fearful. We are not hopeless but we are hopeful.
Going back to the words of that Christmas Carol they have developed a new meaning for me. It seems that they are saying that for every fear I may have there is a hope to meet it. Each fear is met with a hope to overcome it. I believe that that meeting of fear with hope happens through God as he is shown and shared with us in Jesus.
Let us all be careful and hopeful. Let us look after ourselves and each other because we can’t do either of them without them both.
Be safe, be careful and stay hopeful and God Bless us all.
Hi everyone, I hope you are well. I have recorded this short cooking assembly for you which is also about our school values of kindness and happiness. Apologies that I was looking at the wrong point on my Ipad- I thought I was looking at the camera. I will know next time where to look so it doesn’t appear I am gazing off into the distance! I do hope you enjoy the recipe and that you might try to make some of the chocolate cornflake cakes yourselves. I’d love to know what you would choose for your toppings. 😊
