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 1 @ 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.

Year 1 were all working on their reading in small groups, during a guided reading session.

Year 1 – Day 1… sort of!!

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 1 Gallery

‘The Chick and the Fire’ – Directed by Thea, lit by Essie!

Welcome to the Year 1 blog! Over the coming weeks, we will be using this page to keep parents and families up to date with the children’s achievements in class.

We are so excited that we will all be back together from next Monday (8th March).

In the future, you will be able to check this page to see what amazing learning is happening in both Rainforest and Jungle classes.

As a starter, we have put together a gallery of just a small sample of the fantastic work we have had sent in during this period of school closure.

Please remember this just a small sample of all the beautiful 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.
