Year 1 - Mrs Baxter and Miss Winder

Dear Year 1 children, parents and carers,



It's finally here! A return to school for everyone. We hope you are as excited as we are.

Don't forget that you can arrive anytime between 8:45 and 9:15 to allow a safe entry to school.


We have lots of fun and learning planned, including PE, which will start during the week commencing 7th September .

PE sessions will be on Wednesdays for both classes, so all children should come to school wearing their PE kits. 

On Thursdays Miss Winder's class will be going to Forest School. More information will follow soon.

 Mrs Baxter's class will also do PE on Thursdays.


Please feel free to email us with any questions. 

We are always here to help.


See you on Thursday. 


Best wishes


Miss Winder, Mrs Baxter & the Year One Team

Email Communication Statement

As a school we recognise the value of providing email addresses for parents to communicate non-urgent issues with members of staff. At Thomas Jolyffe teachers are free to check their emails as they wish in order to fit to their own preferred work pattern but are not expected to check while they are teaching, while they are at home, or at weekends - so response times may vary. We believe that 48 working hours is a reasonable length of time to receive a considered reply. Urgent matters are best discussed face to face or via the school office, who will ensure the message is delivered as quickly as possible. As with all messages, the meaning and tone may vary depending on who is reading it. Please consider this before choosing to email any member of staff. We would also encourage all parents to consider information sent to teachers regarding other children very carefully as this can be requested by other parents under the rules governing GDPR.

‘Children are captivated by their learning’, ‘The well-being of pupils is at the heart of the school’, ‘School is a calm place - pupils are polite, courteous and well-mannered’
