  • Start of Term 1 Letter from Mr Webster

    Published 03/09/21

    Welcome back everyone and Welcome to all of our new pupils!

    Please find attached letter from Mr Webster:



    3rd  September 2021


    Dear Parents


    I hope you have all had a very enjoyable summer period and are as excited to be coming back to school as we all are. An especially warm welcome to all new families and to the children in our Reception intake. We can’t wait to see our youngest children arriving in their school uniforms for the first time on Monday. I look forward to seeing you all at the school gates over coming days.

    As always, we have been very busy preparing for school re-opening and are spending today and tomorrow undertaking some key training and preparation work in advance of this.

    As previously communicated, we are reverting back to our pre-Covid opening times (please see below) with all year group bubbles, staggered starts/finishes and the wearing of face masks on site are now not required. We will, of course, be continuing to regularly sanitise surfaces, wash hands and maintain effective ventilation in all classrooms. New guidance states that any children or staff with Covid symptoms will have to isolate at home, but their close contacts will not – hopefully ensuring limited disruption to learning moving forward. Our full, updated risk assessment will be on the Federation website from Monday.

    PE Kit and School Uniform

    We will be asking pupils at Backwell Juniors to continue to come to school wearing their school PE kit on their PE days (these will be communicated to you by your child’s class teacher).

    Please could I also remind you all about expected school uniform – please see the link below with full details:

    We look forward to seeing much more of you on site this year - either in class or through regular assemblies and services beginning with our open afternoons from after school until 6pm on Monday 13th September. These will be a chance for you to find out more about your child’s class routines, curriculum and general year group expectations. More details to follow.

    We look forward to sharing another productive and exciting year ahead with you all.

    Yours sincerely

    Nick Webster

    Executive Head Teacher
