Sending Emails

Dear parents/carers,

As we return to school, parents understandably have many questions about a wide variety of topics. We wanted to clarify the most efficient way of getting an answer to these enquiries. We are attempting to reduce the volume of emails being sent to the main office as they cannot possibly have all the answers, particularly to class related questions. This, combined with the high number of emails being received, is leading to us being concerned that our families will not be getting the answers they need within an acceptable timeframe.

Below are the best email addresses for a variety of enquiries – the examples given are a best fit and cannot cover every eventuality, please use them as guides.

For the time being, the main office will still be available by appointment only. Please use one of the following email addresses:

General class/learning related enquiries:

Questions about curriculum, home learning, PE kits etc should be sent to the email address that corresponds to your child’s year group:

Nursery – nursery@edmundwaller.lewisham.sch.uk

Reception/Year 1 – earlyphase@edmundwaller.lewisham.sch.uk

Years 2 & 3 – lowerphase@edmundwaller.lewisham.sch.uk

Years 4, 5 & 6 – upperphase@edmundwaller.lewisham.sch.uk

These email addresses will be checked weekly.

Inclusion:

For questions regarding inclusion and Special Educational Needs, email the following address:

send@edmundwaller.lewisham.sch.uk

This address will be checked daily and a response sent within 3 days of receipt.

We would ask you not to contact staff members directly, teachers will not respond to emails that are not sent to one of the addresses listed here.

If you feel your enquiry is urgent then please send to the main email address:

office@edmundwaller.lewisham.sch.uk

Please think carefully about where to send your email as it will allow us to get the most accurate information back to you.

Dressin’ Up for the day

Today is a school wide dressing up day! The children have really gone for it and look fantastic. We are raising much needed cash for school funds – you can still make a donation online or to the collection buckets. There will be a collection on each gate this evening and more photos uploaded after school.

Thanks to everyone who has been involved in getting the children ready for today.

Year 3 @ 3pm

Have you ever wondered what happens in a school 20 minutes for the end of the day? Some people might assume that this is the time the children start winding down…

Year 3 had PPA and were having PE with Ms. Poole and music with Mr Barrett…. Due to my poor timing, I missed the music session and arrived to find an empty Cooke hall….

….whoops – will try and post picture of the music session, next week!

Year 3 are BACK!

Hello – there was a palpable sense of relief as the gates opened across the school site this morning. For many of the children, this was the first day in school for over 8 weeks.

The school sounds – and feels – like a very happy place and any signs of anxiety seem to have evaporated during the course of the day. Mr. Absolom has zipped around the school to capture a few photos of each year group in-situ!

Year 3 Gallery

Gruff and the Giant Peach!

Happy World Book Day for yesterday!

Welcome to the new Year 3 blog. Here you will find out about all the latest learning that is happening in the lovely Meadow & Stream classes.

As the majority of the Year 3 children have been learning remotely for the last few weeks, we have decided to put together a gallery of just some of the work that has been submitted during this period of school closure. We have been really impressed with the quality and range of work – thanks to everyone involved.

We are busy getting the classrooms ready for full school reopening on Monday (8th March). In the meantime have a look at the work and we will see you next week.

Please remember this just a small sample of all the wonderful work that has been sent in over the past 8(!) weeks. Try to view it as a celebration of the collective effort and not become disheartened if an individual is not represented.
