Spring Term Letter

Blwyddyn Newydd Dda.

Please see the letter below which has also been sent via Seesaw to parents. Apologies but our Eduspot system for sending bulk emails had some technical issues.
A reminder also about safe and considerate parking on Barker’s Lane and surround streets before and after school. If you observe any issues, please report this to the school office and these will passed on to the local PCSO and our local councillor.
Many thanks.


Please see newsletter below.
Full information including a FREE voucher code to access the ‘How to help your child learn’ support has also been emailed to parents.

Poppy Appeal 2021

2021 is the centenary year of the Royal British Legion and on behalf of the Royal British LegionPoppyAppeal we have in stock a limited number of items for sale, with all money raised going to the RBL; see the attached photos for details. Please show your support and help make this year the most successful fundraising campaign ever.

Due to the requirements for social distancing we have had to review how to pass the items over; normally our Year 6 pupils would visit the classrooms and collect the donations in exchange for the items available. This year again we can only accept on-line payments through SchoolMoney; all donations sent in this way, will be paid to thePoppyAppeal from our account.
To reserve any of the items on sale, please email the school office at [email protected] and putPOPPYin the subject line, remembering to include your child/ren name/s and year group in the email along with a description of the item/s and quantity you require. We will dispatch the items to your named child; if you have siblings in school then please place a family order rather than two or three individual orders.
Once we have your reservation, we will add your order to SchoolMoney and then you will get a message through via text and email to inform you that payment can now be made. Once paid we will then dispatch your required items to the named pupil. A list of the available items and suggested donation price follows. If there is a choice of colour available that you would prefer, we will try our best to accommodate but an alternative colour may be sent due to stock availability.

This is a copy of the newsletter that has been emailed to parents. Please ignore this if you have picked this up via email.

Please find a newsletter with information about supporting learning, school bags and Covid-19 below.

Help your child to learn
In the newsletter, there is a link to a free ‘Help your child to learn’ online course that usually costs over £100 and has been funded for every family in North Wales by the GwE School Improvement Service.
Instructions to log in to the free course aand a voucher code have been emailed to all families.
Although there is no longer a requirement for adults who are double vaccinated and children under the age of 18 to isolate if they are close contacts of a positive case to isolate, however, we have really appreciated that parents have been in touch with us to keep us informed if there is a case in the household.
Schools are experiencing a number of positive cases, including us at Barker’s Lane.
If there is a case in your child’s class, you will receive information from school on behalf of TTP asking you to book a PCR test for your child and a second test six days later.
We really appreciate your support in being vigilant. If your child has any symptoms, however mild, please keep them home from school and book a PCR test. We can not accept the 30 minute lateral flow tests.

Thank you for your support.
