End of Year reports

As the summer holidays rapidly approach us I would like to update you on our End of Year School Reports and the FSM vouchers for the Summer holidays.

I’d like to start by mentioning once those families supporting children with home learning. I never imagined we would ever be considering such an extended period of parents needing to step into the role of being teachers to their children. The change in family dynamics to achieve this is considerable, particularly for those balancing their own jobs alongside this too. All I can do is say thank you and that your efforts will have made a significant positive difference to your child. Every book read and maths question completed will have helped. Hold your heads high and know you have gone above and beyond!

Our teachers have been busy writing our end of year reports and they are now ready to distribute. We have decided to send them out via email, in line with our COVID Risk Assessment. If you have any difficulties accessing them please get in touch.

I would also like to mention the FSM voucher scheme for the Summer Holidays. Pat and Vicky are taking a well deserved holiday, so our kitchen will be closed during the Summer Holidays. That means each pupil who is entitled to FSM will receive a voucher for the Summer Holiday, which totals £90. This will be delivered to your email on 17/07/2020. The vouchers are being distributed via Edenred which is a different system, this means accessing the vouchers may be different from previous vouchers.

I want to end this update with a special shout out to some unsung heroes at The Observatory School... the cleaners! During the past 6 weeks, they have done an incredible job of keeping the school spotless and safer than ever before. Without their hard work and determination there is no way our partial reopening would have been such a success... thank you cleaners!
