Covid-19 Update

I just wanted to give you all an update about the current situation in school. As you are aware, the majority of restrictions have been lifted throughout the country and many people have now been vaccinated. 

However, the situation in school does not reflect the confidence that the easing of restrictions may have created. This week we have been operating with in excess of 20 staff members absent each day and the number has steadily increased. 

I wanted to make you aware of this and to be clear that some of our classes now have staff teams who have not necessarily worked with certain children before. This is making things very challenging in terms of staffing but is also creating a significant sense of anxiety amongst some of the children.

I am currently discussing the situation with BCP Council and I will give you all an update as soon as possible. 

Regards,
Geoff Cherrill

School Meals Spring Term 1 2022

Dear Parent/Carer,

Unfortunately there was an error on the order forms that were sent out before the Christmas break.  

If you have already filled out an order form for Spring Term 1 we would be grateful if you could please return the new form linked below as soon as possible.

Menu Spring 1 2022 week 1

Menu Spring 1 2022 week 2

Order Template Spring 1 term 2022.pdf 

The incorrect order form started with the ‘Menu 1’ options rather than ‘Menu 2’.  Therefore week commencing Monday 10th January 2022 will be ‘Menu 1’.

If you have any queries, please contact k.francis@winchelsea.poole.sch.uk directly.

Happy New Year!

We are looking forward to welcoming the children back tomorrow and we hope you have all had a good Christmas and New Year break. 

As I am sure you are aware, there are a large number of Covid cases locally. In order to support a successful return to school this week, we would be grateful if the children could undertake a lateral flow test, wherever possible.

As always, please report any positive results on the home page of the website or send an email to -

medical@winchelsea.poole.sch.uk

Thanks in advance for your support.
