COVID Text messages
There has been some confusion with some of the text messages parents are receiving from school. If your child is in a bubble which has been required to close, you will get a message from school telling you your child needs to isolate.
If your child has not been a close contact with the person who has tested positive then you will receive a message from school saying ‘your child is not a close contact’.
The confusion has come when parents and carers have more than one child in school. You may get more than one message on a day that a bubble closes, one saying you are a close contact and one saying you are not. If you are not sure, please contact school and they will answer any questions.
Oldham is a Tier 3 area with a high rate of infection. Can I please remind everyone to follow the rules and keep us all safe in school and at home.
Crowd Funder Project
I shared with you last week our project we are trying to raise money for in school. We are trying to raise money to develop an outdoor learning area at the bottom of the playground. We won a competition with Marks and Spencer who have offered to match any money we raise up to a certain amount. The first amount we are hoping to raise is £1000 which they will double to £2000.
If you would like to make a donation to our project, please follow the link or speak to the school office for help. It is very exciting and something we feel will make a difference in school.
