The Edge Schools’ Federation

As we come to the end of very surreal academic year we had to send our Lockdown Leavers off in as much style as was possible in these socially distant times. They enjoyed ice creams at break time, to compensate for the missed ones that would have been after SATS. Then a surprise leavers lunch complete with bunting followed by a guard of honour, as they made their way to Forest school to enjoy toasted Marshmallows and a Graduation Ceremony.

Well done Year six you will be missed but rest assured you are always welcome to pop in and see us. We wish you every success for the future. 

We look forward to welcoming back all children at the start of the Autumn Term on Wednesday 2nd September. Please follow this link for the details of our proposed opening structure.

Lunches
These will continue to be provided as a packed lunch. This enables meals to be taken in class and away from the shared hall space. On Wednesdays and Fridays, this will be a ‘hot’ picnic box eg burger and wedges, fish and chips. The packed lunches served since our return on 1st June have been very well received and represent good value. Children are given a choice of bread types (eg Baguette, sliced bread W or B, tortilla) and a choice of fillings. These meals will be free to our infant children (under Universal Infant Free School Meal provision). For our Year 3-6 children there will continue to be a £2.40 charge. You are, of course, welcome to provide a homemade packed lunch but the school’s provision cannot be recommended high enough for both call and convenience.

We are pleased to say that the 100 club is up and running again. Well done to all the lucky winners so far

A couple of school rules for those new parents joining our community and a reminder to the rest of the community. 

Safeguarding your children

If there is a change to the collection arrangements of your child at the end of the school day, then you must inform us via a telephone call to the school office or a message in the link books provided for such communication. 

Thank you

School Play Equipment and Areas

We appreciate that the pupils enjoy remaining on school property at the end of the school day but we would like to remind parents that pupils and siblings are not allowed to play on or around the play equipment including the traversing wall, tyre park or equipment in the barked areas.

This is because for insurance purposes children should only use school equipment when a teacher is present/supervising. We would request that you do not let younger siblings use it while they are waiting at the beginning of the end of the day. 

Dental / Medical appointments 

Where possible these appointments should be sought out of school hours, so as not to impede your child's learning, but if this is not possible then the appointment card or letter must be bought to the school office, so the correct absence code can be

Please note that we have been advised by the Local authority that the insurance on the school taxi is invalidated if friends accompany children who are entitled or pay for this travel. Therefore in future alternative arrangements will need to be made as they are no longer able to travel in the taxi with them.
