Dear Parents and Carers
I hope that home-learning has gone well for you all today. There are a range of messages for you this evening:
Financial Difficulties - We know that many people have been hit hard by the pandemic. If you would like to apply for assistance:
The Cambourne Food Bank operates from the Old Blue School (just behind the church building) every Thursday morning 10.00am-12.00pm. Please contact Mrs Popplewell if you need a voucher: email@example.com
People living in the South Cambridgeshire District Council area who need essential help can contact www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/coronavirus or call 0345 045 5219
Petitions: please consider signing the following:
Petition to request school staff to be vaccinated alongside key front-line workers. This would help us to keep the school staffed upon our return: https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/554316
Petition to request the government to provide urgent financial support to wraparound care and holiday care providers: https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/563892?fbclid=IwAR01kpr1cZITTgILJCPWYX4he25IpdH3L1WPP1FzcI0ziViFa6V1TDlWwZE
IT Devices and Broadband - As far as we’re aware, all pupils have a good quality device and sufficient broadband at home to access live-streamed lessons. Please let us know via CAM-Support@cambournevc.org if this isn’t the case and we should be able to help. No child should be using their phone to access their lessons.
Music for assemblies: Message from Mr Page
We would love to have some musical performances as part of our regular online assemblies – ideally from pupils in all year groups.
If your child has a short musical performance that they’d be willing to share (between 1 – 2 minutes), then please video them performing their piece / song, and once they’re happy with the recording, please email it to Geoff Page (firstname.lastname@example.org). If possible, can the video be sent from your personal email address, rather than from them directly: this covers any issues of parental consent.
Along with the video, please include in your email:
- Child’s name and their form group (although these won’t be included in the assembly video)
- The title, and the songwriter / composer of the piece.
We’re hoping this will be a really nice feature of these assemblies.
Thank you all for your support with your children’s learning.
Wishing you a pleasant evening and take good care,
