Important Information for parents and carers - Friday 15th May

Dear Parents/Carers,

We wrote to you some time ago now (30th April) introducing our new school gateway- a parent app. This app will allow you to pay for school dinners, after school care and trips online.

All school related payments will go through the School Gateway app, you will no longer be able to pay cash for school dinners or trips at the school office from the 1st of June. Make sure you download the app for free, go to the app store, search school gateway and download. This is something the school had already agreed and organised but it is now critical in the present situation with COVID 19 and social distancing. We want to protect parents and pupils so they are not having to enter school and queue and we need to protect office staff and teachers from handling cash.

Your login details will be automatically be generated using the contact information Pipworth already has, so please make sure the details we hold for you are up to date. You can check and change these details by sending an email to enquiries@pipworth-cps.sheffield.sch.uk Alternatively, you can telephone the school office during school hours.

If you have any questions or would like some more information, please see the gateway site here:

https://schoolgateway.co.uk/

Yours sincerely,

Miss. J Storey

Dear parents and carers

 I am writing to remind you that, although school is closed to most pupils, we are still able to provide a packed lunch for those pupils who are entitled to free school meals. This will be available for you to collect each day from the dining hall, between 10.30 and 11.15 am. To comply with social distancing guidance, pupils will not be able to eat this in the dining hall and you should leave immediately after collecting it. Please do not send pupils to collect this without you.

 During these difficult times, please be aware that there is a member of staff in the school answering the telephone. Should you need any help or advice, telephone school and we will do our best to help.

 Please keep checking the school website. Learning activities and ideas will be put on there regularly and any further information that you need to know about school will be there also.

 Stay safe.

 Yours sincerely,

 Julie Storey

Dear parents and carers

 

During school closure, a free school meal will be available for all those not in school who are entitled to free school meals. This will be a packed lunch, which will include a drink.

 

The dining hall will be open for parents on school days to collect this between 10.30am and 11.15 am. Children will not be able to eat this in the dining hall. To comply with social distancing, please do not send children on their own to collect this and please leave the premises straight away.

 

Yours sincerely,

Dear Parents/Carers,

If your child is at home, and is not poorly, the expectation is that some home based learning will take place. Please click here to access learning tasks for your child's year group. The tasks will be updated by teachers weekly.

Additionally, there are many links and helpful videos on the 'learning at home' page of the website, that can be found here

Also, some of the resources that your child uses in school have been made free to use at home:

Tuesday 17th March 2020

Dear parents and carers,

I am writing to you again following further government guidance on Monday 16th March 2020 about the national coronavirus strategy. Current advice has escalated and includes the following new specific guidance centred around ‘social distancing’:

  1. Anyone with a high temperature or cough, or who lives with someone with these symptoms, should self – isolate at home for 14 days.
  2. Non-essential contact with others and all unnecessary travel must stop.
  3. Pubs, clubs, theatres and other such social venues must be avoided.
  4. Whenever possible people should work from home.

 

 As coronavirus seems to be a relatively lower risk for children, and because of the wider impacts of school closures on everyone, especially those parents involved in the NHS, the government plan is to delay closing schools until they feel it is necessary. As such, Pipworth Primary will remain open until we are advised to close by Public Health England. It is uncertain if and when this guidance will change. Importantly, there are no reported cases of Coronavirus in our school at present.

 

To help reduce risks in school we have cancelled, until further notice, the following activities:

- All meetings between school staff and other agencies, except safeguarding meetings.

 - All trips and visits, including the upcoming Movefest, Y1 library visit, partnership games or any sporting events and FS2 church visit.

- Extra-curricular clubs after school

- In school music lessons

- No Y2 or Y6 Easter school

- Non-essential visitors in school

- No assemblies

- No ‘Wrap around care’ after school from today

Please note that ‘Wrap Around Care’ will be open as usual before school only.

 

We will also be making the following changes to our usual procedures:

- Parents will be encouraged to drop off / pick up and leave promptly at both ends of the school day. Parents are asked not to come into the building to drop off pupils or pick them up, teachers will bring them to the yard, this includes Y1.

 - Assemblies will be held in-class. Alongside this, we will continue to educate children about the coronavirus in an age appropriate way with factual information, without being alarmist. We are reassuring them and answering their questions. Children are reminded to wash their hands frequently and to use tissues to cover their cough or sneeze. Extra cleaning of surfaces is taking place around our school and we are doing our best to continue with learning and usual school routines where possible

The school is also actively planning for how it will cope with reduced staff or pupils, and for possible future short term closure. To ensure parents / carers receive school up-dates we have dedicated the home page of our school website to the current situation.

 

http://www.pipworthprimary.co.uk

 

This includes all recent letters and links to important government advice. Please visit the website in the morning and evening to check for regular daily up-dates. If your child or any member of your family are self-isolating, please call school on 0114 2391078. Legitimate absence from school at this time will not affect your child’s official attendance.

 

Thank you for all your support – I know the brilliant Pipworth community will rally together at this most unsettling time.

 

Yours sincerely,
