Returning to School in September

 

We are extremely pleased to be reopening our school in September to all our pupils. To ensure that pupils and staff are safe we have put in place systems and routines that we will be following. Although school will run, and feel a little different than before, we are making sure that it is as close to normal as possible and that our children feel happy and part of the Cloverlea family once again. We cannot wait for the Cloverlea buzz to be felt in our school. We have missed it terribly over the past months.

 

To make sure we are able to keep our pupils safe we also need your support and co-operation. Working together when we reopen school to all pupils is really important and will ensure success. We ask that you make sure you keep up-to-date with our systems and routines going forward in September and work with us to ensure that they are followed. The document entitled 'Cloverlea Risk Assessment Amended' will provide you with all the information that you need. We ask that you familiarise yourself with this document before the return to school in September. Please be aware that this document will constantly change and evolve over the following weeks and months as we react to the recommendations and policies presented to us by the Government and Local Authority. We will, of course, make sure that you are informed of any changes that are made. 

Home Learning

With Cloverlea closing on Friday, we will ensure that our pupils are provided with home learning activities so that their time away from school is still productive and they can still continue to learn. Together, we can ensure that these uncertain times are managed successfully for all - teachers, parents and pupils. 

 

Keep visiting the Home Learning Page regularly during school closure to access work for your children and to find recommendations for Online resources to assist you at home. On this page you will be able to keep informed of what is happening regarding the covid-19 virus with links to useful websites that will support you during these unprecented times. 

 

We now hope that all our families are safe and that the return to school is sooner rather than later.

Supporting Families During Covid-19

At Cloverlea, we know this time for parents can be quite daunting, stressfull and challenging, especially when balancing work, home learning, child care and self-care whilst keeping the family home a happy place and a safe sanctuary for all. We know that you are probably trying hard to keep worries — both your children’s and your own — under control. We just want you to know that you don’t have to do it alone and that we are here for you.

 

We have put together some great links to online resources for you to use, especially giving help, support and advice for families at this difficult time. We hope you find them useful.
