We are happy to confirm that Giles Junior School will be back open on Monday 9th November.

 The Senior Leadership Team have been busy working on a new way of splitting the school into CLASS bubbles, rather than YEAR group bubbles (more information on exactly how this will work will follow later today).

The main points that will affect parents are that:

  • From Monday 9th November Breakfast Club & After School Club will be closed.
  • School will be finishing early on a Friday at midday for all year groups, to enable teachers to have their PPA time 
  • PE days have changed slightly, please see below for the new CLASS PE days. Please can children come into school in their PE kit on these days as they have been doing:
     - Year 3, 4 Costa Rica and 4 Australia - Tuesdays and Thursdays
     - 4 Zambia, 5 France and 6 India - Wednesdays and Fridays
     - 5 Finland and 6 Peru - Mondays and Wednesdays
     - 5 Turkey - Mondays and Tuesdays
     - 6 Germany - Wednesdays and Thursdays

We will review all these points at the end of the lockdown period (2nd Dec) and will keep you updated.

More detailed information will be sent out as soon as we can, but we are aware that these changes will affect your childcare requirements and you will need time to arrange alternative provisions.

Yesterday was a sad day as we said farewell to our year 6 children for the final time. 

Part of our goodbye message was a leavers video, put together by Mr Kent, which you can find below:
