Update on the Y6 Desert Trip

Dear Parents,

First of all thank you for your patience with regards the trip tomorrow. I have been working on the organisation all morning to try and ensure that we make the best decision for all staff and children who are travelling on the trip. After speaking with WESC, Mr Chalkly and Mr Colin, we have decided the trip can go ahead, but at a later scheduled time.

Tomorrow morning the buses will leave from school at 10:00am. Please can you endeavour to get your children here for 9:45am so that we can load the buses ready for leaving. Obviously this will be adjusted if necessary based on the weather. Teachers will be coming to school ready for the regular time, so staff will be in school if you choose to send your child on the school bus as usual. Packing lists and organisation has not changed, so please ensure that children bring their breakfast and everything that was asked for on the packing list.

Unfortunately, Mrs Amin is not able to join the trip, so I will be accompanying the staff and children to the Desert.

Please find below the amended schedule for the trip tomorrow.
