Click this post to find out all about the exciting events in the coming weeks!
Coming up this Friday 2nd July, we have our famous Mereworth’s Got Talent show! This year, to keep things as safe as possible, the classes will be watching the performers in the school hall from their classrooms via Zoom, and photos and videos from the event will be on our Mereworth Events page as soon as possible. Please check back soon. Winners will also be announced on the events page.
Next Wednesday 7th July, is our whole school Sports Day. Please can children wear their house colours and come into school with sun cream, sun hat and a water bottle.
We are so disappointed that parents will not be able to join us, however having carefully reconsidered our decision in the light of updated government guidance last week, our own school risk assessment and taking into account the latest infection numbers and school bubble closures locally and nationally, we are not able to manage having large numbers of parents on school premises without compromising our essential protective measures. We do not want to take the risk of the virus spreading in our school community or have the necessary staffing or basic facilities such as toilets to ensure such a large number of visiting adults (approx. 210 adults in addition to children and staff) are managed in separate bubbles up to 30 with no mixing, whilst on school premises.
We do not want to jeopardise our end of term events and activities for the children including their end of year learning, school trips and for our Year 6 children their residential trip and production that they are really looking forward to. Any positive cases could also result in class bubble closures and children/families needing to isolate as we begin the summer holidays. We are hoping that like you school life will return to something more ‘normal’ next school year and once more, together, we can enjoy all our school events and activities.
We will also be having an Ice Cream truck on site for the children and staff to enjoy, provided by our lovely FOMS!
Photos will be available on the Mereworth Events after the event is finished.
