16 July 2020

Dear Parents and Carers,

School finishes for the end of the summer term on Friday 24 July.  We re-open on Monday 7 September and anticipate (and look forward to!) being back to normal, with all children attending for the usual school hours of 8.50 (doors open from 8.30) and closing at 2.30 Monday – Thursday, 2pm on a Friday.

We are still contactable during the holidays via email – admin@reddishhallschool.co.uk, via text 07825 894 304 or you can ring 0161 442 1197 – this number will not always be manned, but we will be picking up messages.

On Monday 7 September we expect children to be in school uniform.  If new jumpers, sweatshirts and fleeces have arrived we will distribute these then too!

Children should bring in only essential items.  Mobile phones brought in by senior school children must be locked away in their lockers.  Primary children should not bring in mobile phones.

We are very much looking forward to getting back to ‘normal’!  For the first two weeks of term, we are doing a whole school project on Manchester, with secondary children remaining in their tutor groups during this period.  This will enable them to settle into their new classes and back into school routine.  Pending any updated advice from the government, secondary children will resume lessons led by subject specialists once we have completed our Manchester project.  We would love it if over the summer you can talk to them about your experiences of Manchester as a city, the surround areas in Greater Manchester, or if you are able to visit any parts of it.

Our website isn’t available for us to update from Friday 17th July as it is being upgraded.  However, we hope to update it with our COVID Risk Assessment during the summer holidays when it’s editable again and add any further information.  We will text you when this is done.  If you don’t receive our texts, please let us know so we can update your details.

We wish you a lovely summer holiday where you can enjoy time together without the pressures of schooling .

Take care, stay safe, and please contact us if you need.

Best wishes,

Sarah Makin (Head Teacher) and the Reddish Hall Team
