Home Learning & Daily Updates
During half term, Thorpepark will open for keyworker pupils only, through pre-arranged times.
Grab and go lunches will not be available during half term and only limited food bags will be available by collection only on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. If you want a food bag please contact the office.
School is expected to be open on the 1st June for keyworker and vulnerable children through pre-arranged times and Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 pupils.
All places have already been allocated for each year group. To avoid mixing groups of pupils no other pupils will be added to these classes until a review on the 12th June.
Session times will be staggered for the safety of pupils, parents and staff.
Free School Meal vouchers have now been uploaded on the Edenred portal for those families who are entitled. Please check your junk/trash folders for this email or search the name Edenred for the vouchers. Parents who do not have an email address will be able to collect their vouchers from the school office, we will ring you when they are ready for collection. You should receive one voucher each week, the day you receive this can vary week to week. If you have not already registered for free school meals and believe your child is entitled the school will give you an email address so you can register. This process is really quick and will give you an instant decision. Please remember you DO NOT receive free school meal vouchers during a school holiday.
We will update this page as quickly as possible
Important updates for parents
A parent/carer must inform the school if their child or a member of their household has had any symptoms within the last 14 days. If they have, they will not be able to come to school
Government Announcement on the re-opening of schools
Firstly, I would like to thank all parent/carers for being so supportive over the past 7 weeks. It has been wonderful to see how the Thorpepark community have supported each other during these times. I am aware that many of you will have worries and concerns about what will happen when the school reopens.
I just wanted to write to you briefly in relation to the Government Announcement on Sunday night and their stated aim that EYFS, Year 1 and Year 6 may return from the 1st June.
Having got use to ‘lockdown’, with the school only open for key worker and vulnerable pupils, I know many pupils, parents and staff will be anxious when the school reopens. I want to reassure you that as a school your child’s welfare is at the heart of everything we do. We are currently waiting more guidance from the government about how schools need to re-open safely. One thing is for sure, when school does re-open, even partially, it certainly will not reopen like a ‘normal’ school.
As a school team, we are currently discussing how to reopen the classrooms so it will be safe for pupils, staff, and the community. We will have to ensure social distancing is in place where possible, hand washing facilities are available and used regularly and classrooms set up to reduce germs. We will of course share those plans with you in due course.
In the meantime, school is currently open for key worker and vulnerable pupils. Pack lunches are still available from 11.30 to 1.30, however after 1st June timings may be altered. Work packs are available online or can be collected from school site during lunchtime.
Thank you for your continuing support and please stay safe.
