'Be The Best You Can Be'

Enriching lives, making a difference.

Welcome to Cambridge Road

3rd April 2020

Dear Parents / Carers,

First things first. I sincerely hope that you and your families are managing to stay safe during these very trying and difficult times. My thoughts are with you all.

Today should have been a school INSET day. Instead we are on day 10 of our child care provision facility for the children of key workers. This has been going very well with the children entrusted to our care enjoying the days as much as they possibly can although, of course, it isn’t the same without the rest of the children.


As a country, we all need to continue to do what we can to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

That is why the government has given clear guidance on self-isolation, household isolation and social distancing. And, of course, if children can stay safely at home, they should, to limit the chance of the virus spreading.

Free school meals:

If your child is entitled to benefits-related free school meals you should have this week received a voucher for ASDA from school. This was paid out of school funds and was done to tide parents over until the government got themselves organised. Going forward from Friday 17th April school will be forwarding vouchers electronically that the government are providing. These are worth £15 per child per week and will be sent every Friday for the following week. If you think your child may be entitled to benefits-related free school meals you can still apply during the current crisis and you will be able to access the vouchers. Please ring 0300 123 7039. 

Home learning:

In terms of home learning, the packs your children brought home the day school closed were designed to take them up till the Easter holiday. New guidance re home learning will be posted on your class Facebook page towards the end of the school holiday so that the children can continue their learning from Monday 20th April.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support over the last few weeks. You are in our thoughts, stay safe and please keep in touch with the class teachers. We really do want to know how the children are doing.

We are all looking forward to the end of this crisis and the resumption of the normal school day. We will get there.

Yours sincerely,

D Pickering

Head Teacher
