After receiving some feedback from Nursery parents regarding the timings of the Nursery Class, we are proposing to offer an earlier start and later finish time (to be in line with the Primary School timings).

 

Therefore, we are going to trial a start time of 8.45am and finish time of 3.15pm. This is completely optional and you can opt to remain with your current timings.

 

There will be an additional cost of 50p per child per morning and afternoon session (e.g. £1 a day for the additional 30 minutes). This will be added to your termly invoice. 

 

This will be on a trial basis to see how logistically it works with all the children from Sarum and Silbury Class arriving and leaving at the same time as Nursery.

 

Please could all Nursery parents complete this online form to either alter your child’s start and/or finish time or remain with your current timings by Thursday 22nd September.

The Department for Education has produced new guidance on ways to introduce and implement standards that will improve children’s education. 

One of the ways they aim to achieve this is to deliver a richer and longer average school week. They are introducing a minimum expectation on the length of the school week to 32.5 hours for all mainstream state-funded schools. They expect schools to work towards this expectation as soon as possible. 

We aim to trial the increased school week from Monday 13th June 2022 by starting school for all children in Reception to Year 6 at 8.45am and finishing at 3.15pm. Please find attached our updated attendance policy to reflect these changes. 

We welcome your feedback throughout the term to enable us to implement the extra hours as smoothly as possible before the requirement becomes mandatory.

17.09.21

From time to time children are sick (vomit) either at home or at school. Unfortunately it is not possible to distinguish between the causes, and therefore it is essential that the same rule of exclusion applies in all cases of vomiting or diarrhoea. 

 

In the Health Protection Agency document, “Guidelines for the Control of Infection and Communicable Disease in School and Early Years Settings”, the guidance is: 

 

Diarrhoea and vomiting exclusion

Diarrhoea and/or vomiting commonly affects children and can be caused by a number of different germs, including viruses, parasites and bacteria. Infections can be easily spread from person to person (by unwashed hands), especially in children. In general, it is recommended that any child with diarrhoea and/or vomiting symptoms must remain off school or nursery until they have been free of symptoms for 48 hours (the ‘48 hour rule’) and feel well.  

 

We ask that you adhere to the ‘48 hour rule’ to reduce the risk of infection for all children and staff in school. For an example, if your child is sick at lunchtime on a Tuesday, they should not return to school until after lunch on Thursday, provided there have not been any further episodes of vomiting. 

 

If your child is absent from school because of illness or any other reason, you should telephone the school office on 01380 813436 or email admin@st-barnabas.wilts.sch.uk before 8.45am on each and every day of absence.

16.07.21

We thought it would be helpful to write to you with the latest advice from Public Health as we move to Step 4 for the easing of restrictions from Monday 19 July. In the letter below we have the latest information on Test and Trace and how it changes from Monday. 

 

The advice to all Wiltshire schools is that we should continue the systems and processes that we have in place currently until the end of the school’s summer term. This includes the staggered starts and finishes, the bubbles that are in place and keeping the level of social interaction between personnel within the school to a minimum.  

 

Once again, we thank you for your continued support in protecting our school community. 

23.06.21

Due to necessary timetable changes we have had to reschedule the Years 6 Leavers Assembly from Tuesday 20th July to Wednesday 21st July and it will now begin at 2pm.

Staff will be taking plenty of photographs and filming throughout the day and will be uploaded to Class Dojo. 

 

Following on from a very successful Christmas raffle, we are holding a Summer raffle and have managed to get some great prizes already. More details on the raffle will be sent this week. 

 

The Year 6 Leavers Assembly has been organised for Tuesday 20th July at 1.15pm. We plan to hold the assembly outside, weather permitting, but may need to move into the hall, therefore please could we ask that no more than 2 guests per child attend the assembly.

Updated PE/Forest School Kit 

At St Barnabas Primary School we believe that uniform promotes a sense of pride and belonging to our school community.

To achieve this we are introducing a new branded red PE hoodie for all children in school. They are to be worn for PE or when representing the school at various sporting events and can also be worn on visits and trips with the school (hoodies do not replace the school jumpers/cardigans). We would also like to promote the wearing of house colour t-shirts as part of the PE kit. 

We would like to introduce the PE hoodie as soon as possible but can understand there is a cost involved, therefore we are making the hoodies optional for the rest of this academic year but mandatory from September 2021. 

There is also the option of purchasing a green school branded Forest School hoodie for your child when participating in Forest School.   

We have managed to source the hoodies and coloured t-shirts at the best available prices:

PE Hoodie - £9.50

Forest School Hoodie - £9.50

Coloured t-shirt (red, yellow, blue & green) - £2.00 

Please place your order via the SchoolMoney app (or website) in the ‘Shop’ section. Please let Mrs Saunders know if you have any issues placing your order. 

Any orders placed by Friday 28th May should be ready for distributing at the beginning of Term 6. Orders received after this date may result in a delay. Orders are subject to availability from the manufacturers. 

If you have any questions regarding the uniform, please contact either Mrs Clough or Mrs Saunders.

Christmas Lunch - 15th December 2020

 

This year our Christmas Lunch arrangements will be a little different to usual as we are unable to invite parents/families to join in the celebrations. However, the children will still be able enjoy a Christmas Lunch.

 

If you would like to book a Christmas lunch for your child please do so by completing this online form by Friday 6th December. It would be really helpful if you could still complete the form even if you do not want to order a lunch. If you have already booked/paid for a lunch, please still complete the form and select the relevant options.

 

Please note NO OTHER MEAL CHOICES WILL BE SERVED ON THIS DAY. If you do not wish your child/ren to have Christmas meal then they will need to be provided with a packed lunch from home.

 

The cost of the lunch is £2.50 and payment can be made via SchoolMoney (if applicable). Children in Reception, Year 1 and 2 and children entitled to free school meals will not be charged.

School Tea Towels

 

As a unique fundraiser, children have drawn their self-portraits which have then been printed onto tea towels. These would make ideal Christmas presents for family and friends!

 

The product is 100% cotton (size 79cm x 48cm) and a sample of the design can be found below. If you would like to make a purchase, please complete the order form below and hand it in to the office with your payment. Alternatively, orders can be made via SchoolMoney in the ‘School Shop’ section.

 

The cost of each single tea towel is £5 and in order to ensure that we beat the Christmas rush we need your orders back into the office or via SchoolMoney by the end of the day on Wednesday 25th November.

 

Thanks very much and we hope you like them!

Dear all,

Following the latest guidance for schools released last night, we are now unfortunately not in a position to have any unnecessary visitors on the school site, therefore we are unable to invite you to watch the children's performance on Friday afternoon. 

We will film the performance and upload this to the school website for you all to watch instead.

 

There will be no Forest School this Friday for Sarum due to the visit from K'z Dance. Children are to come wearing bright Indian inspired clothing. Children will be dancing outside so please ensure warm clothing is provided.
