It’s our penultimate message of the year… This one’s a short one, but with two links to something longer if you’re interested…
Before we start the message, a note about extreme temperatures forecast for the first part of next week. The Department for Education is not advising that schools close; instead they have issued guidance to schools. The guidance sets out sensible points to follow – make sure you consider each of the following:
- make sure your child comes to school with a large bottle (it could have water previously frozen)
- your child should wear a sun hat and loose, cool clothing (we’re relaxing the rules around school uniform – replace uniform items with things that are cooler eg open sandals rather than shoes, uniform shorts with lighter PE shorts – try to stay as smart as possible)
- your child should be wearing Factor 50 sunblock when they arrive at school and may apply more during the day
In school, we’ll take as many actions as we can. These will include indoor lunchtimes, avoiding vigorous activity, and avoiding being in large groups in one indoor space for a longer time.
Governing bodies aren’t required to produce an annual report; however, Sphere Federation governors believe communicating with our school community is important. Check out their annual governance statement.
Breeze is for all children and young people aged 0-19 from Leeds (and their families) who are looking for positive things to do. Although Breeze is run by Leeds City Council, the information they list comes from all sorts of organisations and partners working positively with children, young people and their families in Leeds, not just the council. Check out the 27 days of fun: Breeze in the Park.
Have a good weekend. Next week, look out for the return of our Summer competition!
