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 4 @ 3pm

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

Not here! Having been around the school this afternoon, there was nothing but classes and children still engrossed in their learning.

Year 4 were taking part in a (virtual)Comic Relief assembly – in preparation for Friday’s Comic Relief day!

Maths Learning in Year 4

This week, we have all been getting back into the routines of the school day. The children are working hard in year 4 in their maths lessons. As you can see from the smiling faces; the children are very happy to be back at their desks!

Feel free to make leave a comment in the box below. We will try and keep the images of the classes learning across the school.

Through the door, came Year 4…

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 4 Gallery

Howdy Year 4 = this is the home of your very new and very own Year 4 blog! We are going to use this to showcase some more of the lovely learning that happens every day in the Desert & Savannah classes.

We know most of you have been learning from home but, thankfully, you will all be back together from Monday!

Once we are up and running, Ms. Green and Ms. Sharman will be posting examples of what you are doing in class. For the moment, we have created a gallery of a small selection of the work that has been sent in during this period of school closure.

In preparation for your return to school, why not have a look and celebrate what has been achieved remotely! See you next week.

Try to remember this just a small sample of all the wonderful learning 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 (or individual piece of work) is not represented.
