Before we look ahead to a busy week at RTS I would like to thank everyone who supported the children at Sports Day last Wednesday. There are lots of photos available to enjoy on the website gallery but I have included a number of images below. I would also like to thank all of the parents who sent in messages of thanks during the week, they were greatly appreciated by all of the staff who worked hard to ensure the day went smoothly.
You will had read in various media reports that cases of COVID-19 are beginning to rise again across the country. Over the weekend we have had significant numbers of staff test positive which will lead to their absence from school at the start of the week. We have re-organised staffing timetables to cover classes but would ask for your patience and cooperation as we move through the week .
The latest NHS guidance for children is below:
‘If a child or young person has a positive COVID-19 test result they should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 3 days after the day they took the test, if they can. After 3 days, if they feel well and do not have a high temperature, the risk of passing the infection on to others is much lower. This is because children and young people tend to be infectious to other people for less time than adults.’

On Monday we will be celebrating our latest super pupils during worship time . On Tuesday we welcome the team from St John’s to lead our worship whist new starters from the St John’s Playgroup will be visiting the school between 1.30-2.30pm
Wednesday sees us open our classrooms to parents between 9-9.30 and 2.45-3.15 to come and look at the work which the children have produced. We still hope to host this event but we are monitoring covid-19 levels in school and will provide updates to all parents before Wednesday. Also on Wednesday morning the children from year five have been invited to visit Rossett High School during the morning to enjoy a performance of Matilda which will include past pupils in its cast and should be a fantastic experience for everyone.
On Thursday the children in Swaledale Class will be enjoying a music workshop during the morning whilst we will be welcoming our new starters for their first taster visits to Airedale and Bishopdale Classes between 9.30-10.30 & 1.30-2.30.
Finally, I am delighted to be able to let everyone know that our Gardening Club have qualified for the Veg Growing Box finals at the Great Yorkshire Show on 17th July. We look forward to seeing how they get on.
