Reports, transition and September.

Dear parents and carers,


Over the next few days, you will be receiving your child's Annual Report and a letter introducing your child to their new class teacher in September.


Reports


We have kept to the same format for reports this year but obviously it is a very different year. Teacher judgments were based on the pupils' progress up to the point of the school partial closure on March 23rd. They are a judgement as to whether the child was on track to be working at age related expectations at that point and they do not necessarily take into account the home learning that has taken place since or any work in school.


Please rest assured, one of the key priorities for our school will be making accurate assessments of the pupils needs when they return in September and adjusting our curriculum to focus on key areas that need to be addressed. This is something we have a wealth of experience in and I am very confident we will be able to continue to offer a full, broad curriculum whilst at the same time targeting any gaps in learning in maths and English. We will also have a big focus on addressing the social and emotional needs of the children and we have some exciting plans linked to the new Personal Social & Health Education curriculum we will be introducing. We will keep you fully informed of all of our work on this.
