Confirmed case of COVID-19 (2 December 2020)

Please see the attached letter, we have been advised today of a positive Covid-19 case in our Year 6.

As the Year 6 children have been self isolating since the 23rd November no action is required apart from with the family concerned. All the other Year 6 children and staff due to return tomorrow can do so as planned. As far as we are aware this case is not related to the original positive case in Year 6.

Google Classroom Guide

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Beechwood Primary School have now set up Google Classroom, an online interface where work can be posted, submitted and assessed. We are hoping to start sending out homework on the platform before half term with the aim that we are completely digital by half term. This might not happen straight away, but we will work to get it sorted as soon as possible.

All of the children will be sent home with their individual login and class code and will be able to access it straight away. This does not mean there will be work on there instantly as this is the first step towards using the system.

Attached is a word document and a link to guide you through logging in for the first time.

Thank you,

Miss Webb

Transition Days

 As you will be aware next week we will begin our transition days in school for the children to come and meet their new teacher. 

Just to confirm this Friday will be the end of our current offer to Year 1 and FS children, as on Monday we will begin our next phase. From seeing the children in school each day, they do all seem to have enjoyed themselves and been very happy in school. We are very excited to be welcoming back more children next week.

This is a time of uncertainty and a lot of children and young people will be feeling anxious and worried about what is going on. This is a normal response to the situation and below we offer some advice about what adults can do to help and support children and young people.

There is a lot of information becoming available – this is great but may also be confusing, so we have pulled together some advice and some of our favourite links in to one place. We hope this will be helpful.

Given that the situation is changing rapidly at the moment we will make updates from time to time which you will be able to find here:
