COVID-19

Although we are now all back at school we are still living in threat of the Covid -19 virus. Just this week the numbers of cases have risen significantly across the country. In order to keep everyone safe and avoid closures, we all have to be vigilant and follow all social distancing rules and government guidelines. Please ensure you follow our guidelines when dropping and collecting your children and keep younger children with you when waiting for an older siblings. As soon as you have collected your child please leave the school grounds immediately. Children should not be running around the playground or entering the sports court. We need to avoid large gatherings on an over-crowded playground and keep ourselves as safe as possible. Thank you.

Rainbow before & after school club

We are pleased to announce the opening of Rainbow Club.

Mrs Tanya Folliot and Mrs Heather Homes have been appointed as play leaders and Mr Berrigan will lead on physical activities for both before and after school sessions.

Children need to be dropped off and collected from the library door.

Mrs Gane and Mrs Braley will be managing the club initially so please contact us at rainbows@welearn365.com with any questions or enquiries. Mrs Hills, in the school office, is also available to help.

If you need to contact staff at Rainbow Club between 7.30 -8.45am and 3.20-6.00pm please call the school mobile: 07580667258.

We are delighted that Miss Summerton and Miss McCready will also be supporting afternoon sessions and we are hoping in the future to be able to offer a wide variety of clubs, i.e. French, Art club and Computer club. Look out for the next stage of developments. This is an exciting venture for Priors Field and we are extremely grateful to Onside Coaching for all their support with our new booking system ‘Onside Live’.

 

TikTok

Parents are being warned that a gruesome video has been circulating on the popular app TikTok this week. TikTok is reportedly trying to remove the graphic videos and is banning accounts that re-upload the clip. Some TikTok users have reported that the video has also been hidden inside other innocuous looking videos.

Please be aware and check that if your child uses the TikTok App that they have not been frightened by any content they might have viewed. We attach a link to help with online safety regarding TikTok and children’s usage.

 

Our theme for Autumn 1 is: Belonging to our school

 

All children and adults at Priors Field are responsible for working together to make sure that everyone feels safe and happy. We have respect for ourselves and others, always strive to be polite and well-mannered, and if we make a mistake with our behaviour we remember that we are team players and always try our best to put it right with the people involved.

We are supportive of one another in our learning, caring when things are tricky or someone feels sad, and we are inclusive at play time. We celebrate our differences and unique qualities so that everyone feels valued as an important and equal member of our school community.

 

Even though we are not able to hold congratulations assemblies and celebrate your child’s achievements with you we are continuing to do this in school. Over the next few weeks we will be looking for children who exemplify the vision words from this term’s theme, ‘belonging to our school’.

 

Playground

On the last day of the summer term we received the fantastic news about our successful application for funding from the Edwards Trustees. Combined with the £10,000 donation from the PTA we have been able to begin the removal of the old and installation of our new playground. The installation begins on Monday 14th September. Thank you to you all for your contributions made throughout the year to our fundraising. This is a wonderful example of the Priors Field community working together.

Online Safety 

It is important that children take the same approach to online safety when using home learning resources as they do when in school. It is also important that parents are aware of the resources available and understand their role in monitoring and supporting their children during online home learning.

Baginton Families
Did you know that our school is the catchment school for Baginton?  Whilst we do have children in school from the village, we do wonder if other families in Baginton are aware that this would be their natural catchment school.  We are trying to advertise ourselves but if you do live in Baginton we’d be grateful if you could pass the information onto other families with children.
