Update 27.05.2020

Dear Parents,

I hope that you all had a wonderful bank holiday weekend – what fantastic weather!  In the last few days – in line with the government’s drive to have some year groups back at school – we contacted you and asked if you wanted a school place for your child.

Based on the responses, we have offered a small number of places in addition to the children that are already in school. We have emailed those parents to confirm the place.  If you have not received a confirmation email then do not send your child to school on 1st June.

For the care and protection of the children and staff in school we will review the situation in 2 weeks’ time.  If we feel it is safe to do so then we will contact you again.

Can I thank you all for your support in these very difficult times.  Please rest assured that we are doing everything in line with government guidelines to keep you and your children safe.  Do not hesitate to contact myself or the two parent Governors: Maz Ahmed and Belinda Ezeazu if you have any further concerns or questions.

 

As always keep checking the school website class pages for new home learning ideas! The teachers love hearing from the children.

 

Keep safe and well,

Steph Dowley

Dear children, parents, carers and our Madeley community

Can I thank you all for your support at one of the most difficult times in world history.  We are all living through very uncertain times and conditions and our first priority is for our families and friends.  This is true of you as parents, and for all the staff at school too.  It is a very sad fact, but we all know someone who has died, been ill or is anxious for their health and the well-being of themselves and precious family.

As you know we are only open at the moment for a small number of families.  I can assure you that I will not be opening John Randall to any more children unless the governors and myself think it is absolutely safe to do so.  I am making this decision based on the care I have for the children, our families, and the care and well-being of the staff.  You trust your most precious children to us and I will not be putting them at unnecessary risk.

But if we do open for more children, please be assured that it will only be when all risks have been assessed and in agreement with Government guidelines.

In the mean- time please, please answer the emails from your class teachers, asking you to sign up to our online learning platforms. Either Tapestry in the Early years and SeeSaw for the older children. You will find the links on our school website – class pages.  If for any reason you cannot access those pages – PLEASE CONTACT SCHOOL! We have lots of home learning packs available and ready to go!

Your children’s teachers are making contact with everyone – we are loving seeing all the work you are sharing.

I will keep in touch when I have further information.

 

Please take care and keep safe.

Best wishes

Returning to School

As you will have seen on the news, the Government is keen for schools to start re-opening whilst maintaining the social distancing rules.

This will therefore be a gradual opening, with some classes attending and some still Home Learning.  We would really value your opinions on this, as to whether you would send your child back to school in June or not.  Please email  school on a2176@taw.org.uk  with yes or no

As part of the new procedures we will be putting in place, to avoid handling cash, we have signed up for ParentPay which is a secure online portal for you to make payments for dinner money, breakfast club, uniform, trips etc online.  We will be using this in the future as a main preferred method of communication between school and parents for trip permissions.

If we have got an email address for you in school, you will receive your login details via email in the coming days, otherwise it will be a posted letter.  If you have received neither by the end of next week, please get in touch with us.  If you have children in other schools that use ParentPay, you can just add your John Randall pupils to that account.  Similarly, for children going to secondary schools that use ParentPay, their account will just transfer.

 

Thank you
