End of Year Letter to Parents


Dear Parents and families,

It has been quite a year! One which I don’t think any of us would like to repeat! That said, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the many parents and families who have shown their support during this incredibly difficult period. You have proven once again what a great community St Barnabas is and how we all come together during tough times. It is a privilege to be headteacher at a school that really is in the heart of the community.

Summer Holidays

The government have now confirmed that schools will not remain open during the summer holidays for critical workers and vulnerable pupils. Food vouchers will be provided for all families eligible for free school meals and we will keep you updated about activities going on over the summer in the local area.

Return to school in September

It has also been confirmed that all pupils will be expected to return to school in September on a full-time basis. Pupils will remain in their ‘class bubbles’ of up to 30. We are currently working hard in school to finalise the plans and make school as safe as possible. I will be in touch next week with the full details.


Next week all children, whether currently attending school or at home, will get the opportunity to take part in some transition activities. The activities will be uploaded to your child’s class page on the school website www.stbarnabasceprimary.co.uk   If you would like paper copies of the activities, please contact your child’s teacher via ClassDojo.  When children return to school in September, they will also get the chance to take part in some transition activities, to ensure they are well-prepared for the year ahead.

End of year reports

Reports will be sent out next week. They will be sent home with children who are in school and posted to children who are learning at home.

The last day of term is Tuesday 21st July. All children from Y1 – Y6 return to school on Thursday 3rd September.


We have been very impressed with the quality of the home learning taking place during lockdown. Once again I’d like to thank you for support with this as I know it has not been easy –  having to juggle working

from home, home-learning, developing new skills, different ways of communicating with each other and different ways of working – but I certainly know it will be worth it in the end!

I will be in touch next week with full details about opening in September.

As always, take care and best wishes to you all.

Kindest regards,


Miss J Hodgkinson
