Our Return to School

Dear Parents / Carers

                As the first week back draws to a close, I would like to thank you all for your support and understanding over these first few days. The return to school has presented some challenges for all schools, given the restrictions and guidance we have to follow, however we have all risen to that challenge superbly. The children have been brilliant, showing real patience and understanding when it comes to ‘bubbles’ and ‘zones’. As parents and carers you have stuck to your drop off and pick up times for each class and that has helped enormously to help reduce congestion around the path and gates. Can I ask you, if you want to stay and talk once you have dropped off or collected your child, can you please move away from the path and school gates to allow for social distancing. This is my first week working with the staff here at Alsager Highfields, they really are a very talented and hardworking team of professionals. I would like to thank everyone for the warm welcome you have given me, especially the children who are delightful.

                Can I please remind you to check your child’s class teacher’s page on the website. All key information for the week and term ahead will be on there, including on which days PE will take place. Remember, your son / daughter can wear PE kit on those days. Each class page will also have a section entitled ‘Remote Learning’ this will have all the work your child can complete at home if they are unable to come to school (for example, if they are shielding or quarantining etc). Remote learning for absent children will not be e mailed home to you, rather it is for you to access it directly from your child’s class page.


Thank you once again for such a successful and enjoyable first week back and I look forward to see you all again on Monday.


Best wishes

Richard Middlebrook

Acting Headteacher
