What are the requirements for uniform in September?
This is the link on our website to see what uniform all child will be expected to wear: UNIFORM
We understand that under these circumstances, you may not be able to get hold of certain items of the uniform before the first day at Ipsley due to needing to check sizes or order them. We ask that you try to get as much of the uniform as possible before the first day back. The minimum requirements for the first day back will be white shirt and black trousers or skirt, black socks or tights and black formal shoes. We will then talk to individuals about your circumstances and when full uniform will be collected.
In regards to FSM vouchers for uniform, information about these will be sent to you later this term.
Will there be assessments at the beginning of Year 5?
We understanding that some of you are worried about any learning you have missed in year 4 due to lockdown and may have fallen behind. Remember: everyone is in the same position. We will have assessments at the beginning of year 5 but probably not until you have been with us a few weeks and settled in. These will help us to understand where you are as a learning and what we will need to do to help you with your learning. These assessment will continue at least once a term through the whole year. These are so we can keep track of your learning and progress and possibly adapt our teaching to suit your learning.
When will we find out who our teachers are?
Miss Davies will start organising the classes once she has received all the information about you all from your first school teachers. You will receive a letter from your teacher once these have been organised, probably a couple of weeks after half term.
What will Ipsley do about social distancing in September?
We, as a school, continue to follow any advice from the government about social distancing in schools and will do so in September whatever the guidance is at that point. We will make sure that you are as safe as you can be in school and will appreciate your cooperation with this.
