School Crossing Patrol

Dear Parents:

The School Crossing Patrols will be returning to our streets from Monday 8th June, however, it will be a phased return as we intend to support each SCP to ensure social distancing can be achieved.

You may have noticed that white box outlines have been painted at the School Crossing Patrols locations. Please do not enter these boxes while the SCP is stood in it. Once the SCP has moved into the centre of the road they will ask you to cross. Only then you should cross and please cross in front of them directly to the other pavement.

The Lollypop Person will, where necessary, manage the site in reverse. So it may be that when you arrive in the morning they will be on the other side of the road. Please make sure that your child is near to you and they are not likely to step into the road.

Please also help the ‘Lollypop Person’ stay well and explain to your child that they need to stay out of the white box so that everyone is protected.

Hopefully, this will be a short term change and by all working together we can begin to get back to some sort of normal again.

Please do not hesitate to contact the Road Safety Team at road.safety@bristol.gov.uk for any additional advice and guidance.

Regards
Mark

Community Messages

Dear Families,

It is harder to keep in touch with you when we don’t see you so often. But we are still thinking of you! Here are some messages from pupils and staff telling you some of the things we have been up to. Please share any work you have done that you would like us to display. You can bring it to the office and leave in the tray for us to put up for you.

Phased return to school for some year groups

Dear Parents,

You may have heard that the government has proposed that if Coronavirus infection rates continue to fall, schools will be asked to make preparations and carry out risk assessments to make the environment safe enough to allow pupils from some year groups begin a phased return from 1 June, at the earliest. Attached are letters with more details about this situation. One is from the school, the other is from the Local Authority.

We will contact families directly when we are ready for children to return. Until then, we will continue to provide learning via the school website and packs that can be collected from the school office.

Best wishes,

Mr Burton

Free School Meals Food Vouchers and Foodbanks

Dear Parents,

If your child receives Free School Meals, your child is entitled to vouchers whilst the school is closed AND during the Easter holidays. To claim these vouchers you need to respond to the text message we sent you with an email to the school address: cabotp@bristol-schools.uk

Once we have the email address, we can send the vouchers codes to you. You then need to access the voucher website, select your preferred supermarket, enter the codes and the vouchers will be sent to you.

Please note that you must redeem the voucher within three months after which the voucher will expire and you won’t be able use it to purchase groceries.

If you have any questions, please contact the help line telephone number 01908 303 420 and press option 1 Voucher Cheque

Haddii aad su’aalaad qabtid, fadlan kala xiriir laynka taleefanka caawinta nambarka 01908 303 420 riixna dalabka 1 Voucher Cheque
(Isniin ilaa Jimce 9am ila 5pm)

At this time, the government have only issued vouchers for pupils who are entitled to Free School Meals. This is different from Universal Infant Free School Meals. All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 usually receive a free school meal. But the government vouchers are only for families that qualify for full Free School Meals entitlement because of their income.

If you would like to apply for Free School Meals please complete the online application form – you will need your National Insurance Number

Online Learning

Dear Parents,

I hope you and your families are well at this very unusual time. By now you should have all received at least one phone call from your child’s class teacher or a member of the leadership team. We will continue to make these calls to check you are ok and see if there is anything to do to help with learning.

I hope you have all found the class blogs where new learning will be uploaded weekly. The school office will also be sending out text message links to these learning pages.
