Extreme Heat Update #3

Update #3 19/7/22

Dear Parents and Carers

I would like to congratulate all of the Woodcroft staff and pupils who have been in school for the past two days and coping with the extreme conditions so admirably. Like yesterday, all pupils stayed inside, in the shade, and kept hydrated with regular drinks.

It is a relief to note that temperatures are set to cool by tomorrow so we are expecting a return to full attendance. We shall also be returning to our regular timetables with scheduled PE and Games sessions taking place. Pupils should wear normal school uniform or their PE kits if it is their usual day for PE. Please remember to apply sunscreen to your child in the morning, ensure they wear a hat, and send in a reusable water bottle.

As it is the last week of term please note that ALL extra-curricular clubs are cancelled e.g. netball and football. This does not affect Acorns which remains open until Thursday.

Can I also remind parents that we finish one hour earlier at 2.15pm on Friday, and that Nursery finish on Thursday of this week.

Finally, take care while the temperatures remain high overnight. We hope to see you all tomorrow.

Kindest regards

Craig Tallon
Head Teacher

Take a look … ground temperatures were reaching 55 degrees in our playgrounds!
