Ark Oval Primary Academy – News of the Week 27th - 1st Oct 2021

Sunday 03 October 2021

Principal's Summary

Dear Parents and Carers,

We continue to push the school back towards normality, yet we must recognise that normality is not yet here.

We haven't had a typical year in the last two years - getting back into the swing of a full-time year is draining for pupils, parents and staff. So as we reach the darker days of winter, a kind word of encouragement goes a long way. 

Take a second and help each other get through these days - tell someone something you have to appreciate about them or what they do. Brighten their day and show appreciation - you never know how much difference it could make.

 

LINE ETIQUETTE - Please respect each other and the requests of the school

Would you please use the entirety of the arrival window DONT all arrive at 1530 - we have cleared the line every day by 1535 - if you arrive at 1540, there is no line!

Respect the line - don't push in - if you are causing an issue in the line, you are compromising the safety of the academy community. We will take the matter seriously. 

Please move through the site quickly and not stop for social reasons or provide snacks or adjust clothing for your child. They can wait the 3 minutes until you are offsite; the people are waiting behind you in the line can not. 

COVID Plans:

Please ensure you inform us as quickly as possible if you keep your child out of school with suspected symptoms. Check with the school office if you are in any doubt about the new restrictions.
