We hope you are well. Due to Covid 19 and the fact that our school is full of children in their bubbles, we have to do transition differently this year. We have not been able to do our usual visits to school during this term so we are planning for visits in September. We are going to have a staggered start to the new school year. The first part of this will be family visits to Upperwood. On Tuesday 1st and Wednesday 2nd September 2020 we are inviting you to come to visit school. There will be 2 families visiting at a time with the chance to look around your new classrooms and meet your new teachers. The visit will last for 15 minutes – as you can appreciate we have to keep to time in order to give everyone the chance to look around and ask questions. Please could you email firstname.lastname@example.org with your preferred time slot? We will try very hard to make an appointment during the best slot for you. We look forward to meeting you in September. Please choose the best time slot to visit. I will email you back a specific time ASAP.
Tuesday 1st September - morning (I will email you a time slot between 9.30 and 12.05) afternoon (I will email you a time slot between 12.30 and 14.05) Wednesday 2nd September - morning (I will email you a time slot between 9.30 and 12.05) afternoon (I will email you a time slot between 12.30 and 14.05)
It is then our plan that children will start school part time to begin with on Thursday 3rd September and for all children to be in school full time by Thursday 10th September if not earlier. We await government advice for the wider opening of schools in September so we do not know exactly the timings of the days at the moment. We appreciate this is not ideal but as soon as we have more information we will email again. Regards, Miss Hayhurst, Early Years co-ordinator Upperwood Academy
