Balfour Beatty on behalf of Telford and Wrekin Borough Council are planning to undertake Highway Improvement Works. The work is set to commence on Monday 28th September 2020 between the hours of 19:00 – 07:00 and will last for a duration of 11 Nights with an end date of Saturday 10th October 2020.
The diversion route for vehicular traffic travelling in all directions will be signed on site.
Please see our website for further details regarding this TTRO: https://www.telford.gov.uk/ttros
Thank you for your support with the drop off and collection rota. It is working well around site and traffic is much reduced.
We are having a few issues around car park gate access.
To help with this, it would be helpful if you could avoid parking in the lane directly opposite the school gate. This should allow for smooth access to the school site.
The school car park is much quieter at the moment and we still have many free spaces that can be used in the mornings and afternoons.
Please find attached letter from Mr Ames in regards to face masks, and children in the playground at the start and end of each day
I have sent home today the individual login details for Parentpay for any children who started with us in September.
This includes all reception children and those who have moved from other schools.
Please set up your ParentPay account as soon as possible even if you are not going to use it straight away as it reduces the amount of duplicate paperwork we have to produce.
Any new parents who have had children attend breakfast club or wraparound club will now be able to book and pay for their sessions once they have set up their account.
If you have any issues then please let us know in the office and we will endeavour to assist with these.
Unfortunately at the moment we are unable to run any after school clubs
When we are able to do this I will update the website and school news with details of any clubs that may be running
Please could all children who were given/sent reading books for over the summer holidays, return these on Monday to school.
A gentle reminder to all parents
Children are only allowed to have either fruit or vegetables for their snack at break time.
Children in Class1 and Class 2 are provided with this , but parents are able to send in fruit or vegetable if your child will only eat certain ones.
Many thanks for your support
Apologies with regards to letters Class 3 received regards the codes for lunch numbers, you will need to add 2038 in front of your child’s code please.
All children who use inhalers -whether frequently or occasionally – need to have them in school.
The class teachers have sent home some today which have expired over the summer
Please can parents send in new labelled inhalers by the end of this week at the latest as they must have their own individual inhalers to use at school.
I will be sending out another set of review paperwork to those families that have not completed their 2020 review paperwork as we need this in school by the end of the week also please.
Thank you for your assistance
Carriageway Improvements in your area
We will shortly be working in your area as part of the Council’s 4 year investment programme to ‘Protect, Care and Invest to create a better borough’. Between 2020 and 2024 we are investing over £50m to keep neighbourhoods safe, clean and well connected. The ‘Pride in our Community’ Highways Capital Programme will deliver improvements to infrastructure including roads, footpaths, parking, sustainable transport, street furniture, drains and structures.
Our vision is to ‘Keep Telford Moving’ and in 20/21 we will invest £22m to deliver 200 improvement schemes across the borough. These improvements will be achieved in partnership with the Council’s Principal Contractor Balfour Beatty.
We will shortly be carrying out Carriageway Improvements in Pinfold Croft, Waters Upton, to improve the condition of the carriageway. The surface treatment works are due to commence on 23rd September for approximately 5 days (weather permitting).
The works will be completed by our new partner and highways contractor Balfour Beatty, who will be using their specialist sub-contractor JCPS.
We will be working between 07:30am-16:00pm on weekdays under a Road Closure and will have our dedicated teams on site to assist you during this time to help you get past the working areas safely should you need to do so. Please ensure that children are supervised, do not play near the working areas and all pets are kept away from the works.
Due to the developing situation with COVID-19, these dates may be subject to change and schemes could be cancelled or deferred at short notice depending on resource availability or guidance from government. We will do our utmost to deliver work
Balfour Beatty will be the lead delivering this work in partnership with the Council and our details are below, for any questions or queries relating to this scheme please contact us at our new highways hub:
We had a slight build-up of traffic on site today during one of the drop off windows. Although it cleared relatively quickly, I am mindful that we do not want a situation where traffic is queuing on the main road. The staggered drop off arrangement worked very well last week. Please could you help support the school community by:
Arriving at your designated time for drop off/collection. If you arrive early, you will encounter outbound traffic from the carpark.
- leaving the school site as soon as your child has entered their classroom – this will ensure the carpark is clear for the next drop off window
- please remember to keep a 2-metre distance while on the playgrounds. 2 metre markers have been added for your convenience
- only one adult to enter the school site with their child – this will keep numbers as low as possible.
- please ensure that your child stays with you and does not run around the playground unsupervised
I understand that this routine is far from normal, but it has been put in place to ensure that the school community remains as safe as possible and everyone is able to access the school site safely and in a timely way. Thank you for your continued support with this.
Collection times and drop off times for children
|Class||Start Time||End Time||Drop off/collection|
