Dear Parent/Carer

I am writing to thank you for all your patience and support during this first half term. This has certainly been one of the most challenging times we have had to deal with in school.

I would like to say a particularly big thank you to our Reception children and their parent/carers. They have perhaps suffered the most during these unprecedented times and have not experienced the ‘welcome’ that we have been able to offer historically. The children have been absolute stars and have settled remarkable well into school life. I am so proud of them.

School closes today for a week for the holidays and opens again on Monday 2 November. If the Government decide to extend the holiday as part of a ‘circuit breaker’ for COVID-19 I will let you know via text.

For the first week back, start and finish times will remain unchanged for all year groups with the exception of our Reception classes finishing times. F2J, F2C and F2S will finish at 2.45pm on Monday –Thursday and on a Friday will finish at 11.55am. I will review the times for all other year groups once we are all settled back into school after the holidays.

We will continue to serve a hot lunch in the dinner hall every other week for children who have a school dinner. The other weeks children will be provided with a school packed lunch to be eaten in the classroom. We are hoping that Reception children will be able to have dinner every other week in the dinner hall starting this half term.

Following our COVID-19 compliance inspection last week we were advised to continue to keep all rooms well ventilated, even during the winter months. Windows will be open throughout the day and although we will have the heating on it may feel colder than usual in classrooms. For this reason you may want your child to wear an extra layer underneath their school uniform.

We will not be providing any after school clubs after the holidays, until it is safe to do so.

Thank you to those parents who responded to the consultation on our draft ‘Relationships Education’ Policy. I have taken your comments on board and I am hoping to be able to share more information about how we will teach this in school with you after the holidays and share some of the resources too. Please remember to check our website every week for updated information. If your contact details change please let us know straight away. Once again, thank you for your continued patience. I would like to wish you all a relaxing and healthy holiday and look forward to seeing you all again on 2 November 2020. Yours faithfully Claire Spencer Headteacher

Our mission statement... "Quality Education for All"

We aim to ignite a lifelong passion for learning in every pupil.  In order to do this, we intend to include, inspire and invest in every pupil through our bespoke curriculum.

At Killinghall we equally value each child’s contribution and cultural identity and develop respect of others and life of all living things. We believe in and value inclusion – recognising achievement however small. We value and celebrate each individual’s successes and ensure safety and well-being. Our children are ‘nurtured’ to independence.

We expect everyone to do their very best and develop their strengths.  We hope all our pupils will make a positive contribution to the world, making it a better world for the future. We build resilience so our pupils learn what is ‘right’, ‘just’ and ‘humane’.

Our pupils learn to understand responsibilities and rights and use their voice to express themselves effectively.

At Killinghall we value conformity and rules for the betterment of society, whilst encouraging individuality and freedom of speech.
