EYFS September 2020 Update

Thursday 17th September

Good Morning Parents,

Your children have made a fantastic start to their time at Sherwood. Well done to all our new EYFS children who are settling in brilliantly to Sherwood. Our Induction arrangements are working very well and our EYFS Team have found the time with you and your children incredibly valuable. 

Full time provision starts for all EYFS children next Thursday (24th September). Your children have all been allocated either Group 1 or Group 2 for drop off and collection. Please see below for the timing for each group. We ask please that only one parent attends school for drop-off and collection please.

School Meals

From Thursday 24th September, your child will receive a School meal. There is currently a choice of a packed lunch or a hot grab and go bag. We do not serve a halal option, but there is always a vegetarian option.

For our EYFS children, we are setting up an online form for you to complete at home with your child each week. The form will be available through our Website Parent Area or School Spider App. If you are a new user, you should have received an activation email to login to the app/website. Please can you let the office know if you are experiencing any difficulties with this.

Each week, we ask that you complete the meal choice form with your child. The form will close at 9am each Monday morning for that week. Thank you!

Finally, thank you for supporting our Social Distancing measures on school site and for supporting our Induction this year. I look forward to meeting you all again at our EYFS Welcome meeting on 30th September.

Kindest regards,

Mrs J Lumb
