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.

Year 6 Leavers

Leavers in the sun….

Today is the last day that we will have our lovely Year 6 children at school. We cannot believe that they are already heading off to secondary school.

We have just had a leavers’ assembly in the playground and the children were presented with their excellent leavers t-shirts, which the children themselves raised funds for.

They are now in the age old tradition of getting their t-shirts signed in the playground.

We would like to wish all of our Year 6s the very best for Y7 and beyond…

Year 6 Opera Premiere

We are really pleased that it looks like the Year 6 Opera Premiere can go ahead as hoped on Tuesday 20th July @ 7pm

Mr Barrett and the Year 6 team are working extra hard to ensure that the children get their red carpet treatment.

The screening will take place at the marvelous Genesis Cinema in Whitechapel.

Year 6 @ 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…

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

In year 6, the two classes had been learning about classification and using branching diagrams to sort sets of (plastic!) animals effectively.

Year 6 Area Work

Hard @ work in Year 6

As we all settle into the routines of school once again, Year 6 are getting back to work. This week, year 6 have been looking at the relationship between area and perimeter in their Maths work.

The children have been using formulae to find the area of shapes and are going to be looking at how to find the area of shapes such as triangles and trapeziums.

Back in the mix – Year 6!

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 hard at work!
