NEWSFLASH........

There will be no more school newsletters. Instead we are excited to announce the introduction of our new school communications hub WEDUC - it's very much like Facebook and other social media which is easy to use.

In order to see all the school news, please download the WEDUC communications App onto your mobile phone. If you are a parent or carer, you will receive an email from the system inviting you to download the App and set up login details using a code in the email.  

Please download the App today and come on board with WEDUC!

If you have any difficulties using the App, you can also access your WEDUC account via the website:https://www.app.weduc.co.uk

If you have any difficulties accessing school news, please call the school office and we will offer whatever assistance we can. 

With kind regards

Mrs J Timmins

School Business Manager

BURLEY ST MATTHIAS IS A GOOD SCHOOL AND IS STILL IMPROVING!!

Feb 2020

"Christian values are at the heart of all the school does. The school's motto is Everyone is special. The co-headteachers have created a school community with a real family feel. Staff regularly go the extra mile to keep the pupils safe and happy. They also provide fantastic support for pupils families.  Pupils enjoy their lessons. They work hard and want to do well."

"Staff have high expectations for every pupil . No one is ever written off ’’. They want each pupil to be their best in everything... Teachers are working hard to make every subject even
better. Relationships across the school are warm and nurturing."

Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools says:

Burley St Matthias is a GOOD school with OUTSTANDING Leadership and Management

"The school describes itself as the Burley St Matthias family and this is evident in the warmth of the relationships between all members of the school community. Parents of diverse religious backgrounds uniformly assert that the school’s Christian ethos underpins the fact that everyone ‘goes the extra mile’ to support learners and their families."

Risk Assessment

Ongoing Procedures

Primary Testing (of staff)

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Update 1st March 2021

The latest government announcement is that school will be open for ALL pupils to attend from 8th March.  The updated risk assessment is available on this page but in essence we will be operating much the same way as in the autumn term.  Please take into account the following:

  • Staggered start and finish times will resume (even classes 8:45am - 3pm; odd classes 9am-3:20pm)
  • Face coverings should be worn by parents at drop off and pick up and the one way system in KS2 should be observed
  • Pupils will remain in bubbles through the day with all the hygiene measures remaining
  • We may still need to close bubbles if there is a positive case - please inform us of any test results.
  • Please do your best with uniform - we would like to see the children 'ready' to return to school.

We are really looking forward to seeing the children back in the building.  If you have any concerns that you wish to discuss, please contact the school office.

  • All pupils are expected to attend unless they are unwell or are self isolating because they are a close contact of someone who has Covid 19 symptoms or has tested positive for Covid 19, or are quarantining.
  • You must not 'drop in' to the school building for any reason unless it is absolutely urgent.  Please telephone, or speak to us on the intercom if you need to speak to a member of staff.
  • If you do need to enter the building you MUST wear a face covering unless you are exempt.  You will not be allowed to enter without one.
  • We strongly advise all parents and older siblings to wear a face covering at drop off and pick up as there are places in school where it is difficult to social distance.
  • You MUST wait in our playgrounds and NOT on the pavements outside school.  Please respect our one way system.
  • It is very important that we ventilate the classrooms well.  This means keeping the windows open as much as possible.  If your child is feeling cold, please ensure they have extra layers on e.g. a vest or t shirt under their school shirt,  a plain or extra cardigan or tracksuit top may be worn over jumpers.  Please make them school colours if you can but otherwise as plain as possible.
  • We will continue to get outside for breaks and lunchtimes.  Please make sure your child has suitable footwear and  coat.  We do try and keep them off the mud - maybe you could remind them about this as well!
  • It is more important than ever that children are familiar with and can get online to access remote learning - its almost bound to happen at some point that they need this.  It is useful to have parent feedback on this as it is difficult for us to know how the children experience things at home, so we welcome your constructive feedback.  We do also need everyone to make a massive effort to get children online.  Attendance has been bad the last half term. Children are missing vital lessons.  Teachers are working incredibly hard to make sure lessons are available online. We are working hard to make more devices available for loan but all this is pointless if children don't go online and do their work.  Homework is being set weekly on Google Classroom or Tapestry to try and get everyone in the online habit.  Let us know what your difficulties are so we can try and help.

Finally, may we just say that it remains a privilege to serve our community.  We would like to pay tribute to the children who have settled back so well into the challenging new environment; to you as parents for all the support you have shown us and also to our staff who have worked tirelessly to learn new skills, redesign plans, assess children's knowledge and gaps and above all make them feel welcome and safe in school.

Thank you, one and all.
