I hope you managed to enjoy the lovely weather this weekend. We always enjoy playtimes when we can get on the grass!
This term we have introduced a new lunchtime system which allows school dinners and packed lunches to eat together in the hall. This allows friends to be together and has improved the overall dining experience. We are also working on our table manners and conversational skills. We have been very proud of the children and our excellent year 5 and 6 “bistro buddies”, who are helping our younger pupils.
Ribblesdale and Dentdale are looking forward to their “Fantastic Food” workshop at RHS Harlow Carr on Thursday. You may also have noticed our poly tunnel. This year we are challenging ourselves to see if we can grow food all year round and to consider where our food comes from. In our attempt to reduce our carbon footprint, we hope we can use the food we grow at school.
Tuesday, I am looking forward to meeting Becky Onslow and Wendy King, who do a fantastic job organising Friend’s events. I am sure they will be looking for lots of willing helpers soon!
I am also looking for green fingered willing helpers to help maintain our beautiful wildlife area. If you are able to give an hour of your time from time to time please email or ring the office.
Like many schools we have seen the numbers of positive COVID -19 cases rise in the last week. We are maintaining good hygiene and ventilation, but have been advised by public Health England to share the information below. Thank you for your support to keep our community safe.
I think I have had contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, but I have not been notified and advised to self-isolate. What should I do?
Contacts who need to self- isolate will usually be notified and advised to do so by NHS Test and Trace, including by the NHS COVID-19 app. If you believe that you are a contact of someone with COVID-19 but have not yet been notified by NHS Test and Trace, you should carefully follow the guidance on how to stay safe and prevent the spread of COVID-19. In this circumstance you can arrange to take a PCR test, even if you do not have symptoms, because you may be at higher risk of being infected.
