Continuing Covid-19 prevention measures

Thank you for your continued efforts and support following our Covid-19 prevention measures. This has helped us keep school open and limit the number of children “learning from home”. It is important that we continue these measures until the end of term. Over the past few weeks we have seen a small but steady increase in children isolating and “learning from home” following confirmed Covid-19 cases, possible symptoms of Covid-19 or coming into close contact with somebody with a positive case of Covid-19. It is not over yet.

Consequently, and even if restrictions are lifted or adapted nationally on Monday 19th July we will continue with our Covid-19 prevention measures until the end of term on the next day, Tuesday 20th July. This helps protect us all and limits the impact of Covid-19 for the summer break.

Sports Day becomes Sports Days!

Due to the above measures still being in place and the compact nature of our school field we have had to adapt our sports day this year and hold the event behind closed doors and split it into 5 different days!. What matters most, is all our children get to experience the fun and competitive nature of our annual celebration of sport.

Your child’s sports day is as follows…

As you can see, a full day of sporting fun has been planned! Where two year groups are participating, one will compete whilst the other one will cheer on. Year group bubbles will remain intact. During this week there

will be no normal PE sessions so children need to come to school in uniform. Nursery will be enjoying their sports day on Friday 9th July.

Year 6

We were extremely disappointed that our eagerly anticipated visit to Overstrand Hall was cancelled at the last minute by Kingswood. Since then, the Year 6 staff have worked tirelessly to create an activities week for our Year 6 children to enjoy. This starts on Monday 5th July. In addition to this, an evening of fun is planned on Monday 19th July. More details to follow.

Finally, on Tuesday 20th July at 3:40pm, to conclude our Year 6 pupils’ time at HCPS, we would like to invite Y6 parents and carers onto the top playground to join us as we all say farewell. (This means on Tuesday 20th July, Year 6 pupils will not leave school at their normal time of 2:55pm but 3:40-4:00pm.)

Reports (and Meet the Teacher)

During week beginning Monday 12th July, you will receive your child’s end of year report electronically. You will also receive details of their new class and class teacher(s). All children will meet their new teacher(s) on Monday 19th July but because of continuing Covid-19 preventative measures you will not be able to meet them until we return after the summer break on Monday 6th September (TBC)
