If your child is eligible for free school meals then you will receive an email from the company called Edenred this week. This to replace the meals we are unable to provide in school at the moment and there will be a link to redeem a supermarket voucher.
These vouchers will cover the period 22nd February to the 5th March. Children will be back in school from the 8th March and will be provided with their usual free school meal in school if eligible.
Please contact the school office on email@example.com if you have any further queries.
Kind regards, Mrs Perkins.
Please find attached two documents outlining what we expect in terms of you and your child using technology when related to our school.
If you have any questions or queries about anything in these documents don’t hesitate to contact the school.
We have taken the decision to close school tomorrow due to the adverse weather conditions and the forecast for a heavy freeze later tonight. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause to parents but feel it is the safest option for all.
Remote learning will still be available on our website.
We are hoping that school will re-open to Key Worker children as normal on Tuesday.
As you may be aware, in 2019 Telford & Wrekin Council commissioned an independent inquiry into child sexual exploitation within the Borough. The purpose of the Inquiry is to fully investigate and establish the facts of child sexual exploitation in Telford & Wrekin from 1989 to the present day to identify if, and where, public, and other services have failed and where possible, to establish who is accountable for any failure/s and to make recommendations for the future.
At the end of last year, the Chair launched an advertising campaign and made a further call for witnesses to come forward and give evidence to the Inquiry. The Chair has asked the Council to help push this call for evidence out through schools to reach parents and guardians of school aged children, who may have relevant evidence to provide to the Inquiry. With that in mind, the Inquiry has prepared suggested wording that could be shared with parents by schools, using the preferred method of communication.
Schools and their staff are also asked to consider whether they themselves may have relevant evidence to provide to the Inquiry, and if so please do get in touch with the Inquiry.

I would like to thank you for your continued support throughout this week. We have worked hard this week to ensure that the numbers of children at school have remained low enabling us to ensure the safety of all of the key worker children we have in school and our staff. This would not have been possible without all of your support and selflessness. I appreciate that many of you are currently juggling working from home and supporting your children with their home learning. We are all extremely appreciative of this and we hope that together we can continue to support you in this.
Throughout the week we have been monitoring and evaluating the home learning package that we are offering. It has been wonderful to see some of the fantastic examples of work completed by your children that have been submitted to their teachers. We would like to celebrate this work and will be sending out a homework certificate to one child from each class each week to recognise their hard work. We will also be awarding one child who has been in school a certificate for their hard work too. These will be sent to parents via email. We would ideally like you child to complete 4 hours worth of work a day, in line with the government guidelines, this will be made up of one English, one maths and either a Science, RE or a foundation subject lesson. Completed work can be submitted to class teachers through the dedicated class email address or Class DoJo. If at any point your child is struggling with their work, teachers and teaching assistants are manning the class email between 9:00 and 12:00 every day to offer your children support, guidance and encouragement digitally should they require it.
We welcome any feedback and comments regarding our home learning package, please do not hesitate to contact myself through the school office.
Thank you for your continued support and I know that through our joint efforts and hard work we will ensure the continued safety and education of all of the children at Wrockwardine Wood CE Junior school.
I would like to say thank you to all the staff, pupils and parents for making me feel so welcome at Wrockwardine Wood C.E. Junior School. It has certainly been a very unusual week to start my headship. My transition into the school has been made much smoother by the support and positive comments from parents. All staff have worked incredibly hard to ensure your children have access to high quality learning resources enabling them to maintain their education within school and at home. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the home learning package, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
My main priority is to ensure the safety and wellbeing of pupils and staff at Wrockwardine Wood C.E. Junior. I know that it is not always easy or ideal to home school your children, however, in doing so you have enabled me to keep numbers in school low making it possible to socially distance those that are coming in to school and maintain rigorous hygiene procedures for everyone’s benefit. Furthermore, to parents who are key workers, your flexibility in only sending children in when absolutely necessary is greatly appreciated and follows current government advice stating the safest place for your children at present is at home.
From next week, we would ask that key worker children attending school are dressed in school uniform with a school sweatshirt/cardigan with appropriate winter coats. In accordance with our latest risk assessments, doors and windows will be opened regularly to circulate air and this will make the building very cold.
CHILDREN ELIGIBLE FOR FREE SCHOOL MEALS:
From the 18thJanuary 2021 we will be offering Aldi vouchers to those families eligible for Free School Meals. In view of the monetary amount and for security reasons, these will need to be collected from school by an adult and signed for. For the week commencing 11th January, we will be offering packed lunches which need to be collected from school. An electronic order form has already been sent to you by text (for week commencing 11th Jan only). Again, I’d like to thank you for your patience giving us the time to put this system in place. It may take over a week for the vouchers to be distributed to us. Once we have them, we will let you know.
Please note: the parents of any children attending school who are eligible for free school meals will need to make a choice of whether to have a hot meal cooked in school daily or receive the vouchers and provide their own packed lunch. Please advise us of your choice via email email@example.com by 12pm Monday 11th January. If we do not receive any communication from you by this time, we will presume you are not taking up this offer and do not require either.
I hope that by continuing to work together during this very difficult time we can ensure that our loved ones are kept safe. Please do not hesitate to contact school if you have any queries or concerns.
