Weekly Round Up

Dear Parents and Carers


Our newsletter will be posted today without my input as I write so regularly on this section during lockdown instead. We have had our first critical care bubble closure today, and everyone who needed to isolate have been notified. All other children and staff in school have been informed and to be extra vigilant in looking for signs that may require a test. Please can we ask that tests are taken as quickly as possible so that we can contact trace staff and children who need to isolate.


It was lovely seeing everyone's learning this week in assembly. What amazing learning you are sending in. The certificates will be posted to you all today. 


I am sure you have heard the government's announcement that they are hoping to start opening schools on the 8th March, if conditions allow it. We will let you know if we hear anything before then and continue with our support through every school week.


We had our annual visit from our LLP (Learning Leadership Partner) from Hampshire County Council this week (remotely). Because of lockdown, it was a slightly different format to usual and offered both robust challenge and support. I shared some of your lovely learning and comments, celebrated our successes and areas we have identified to improve. I will share some of the key points of the report when I receive it.


this week saw all staff at BWIS do our first Lateral Flow covid test in school. All staff have signed up to take part and from now on we will be completing the test twice a week on the weeks we are in school.


I hope you have a lovely weekend  and look forward to seeing your exciting learning updates.


Best wishes


Mrs Riches
