URGENT - Sports Day Update

Sent 16 Jun 2022 15:14

Dear Parents / Carers

The school has been monitoring the weather situation all week and following a dynamic risk assessment today the following has been decided in order to ensure the safety and wellbeing of pupils at sports day tomorrow during the predicted heatwave:

KS1 – races will commence at 9.30am as planned, as it should not be too hot at that time. The number of races may be reduced to ensure we are not outside for too long. Please apply sun cream before school and provide your child with a sunhat and their water bottle.

Y3/4 – races will commence at the later time of 2.30pm to limit the amount of time spent outdoors. There will be fewer races and there will be 8 children per race instead of 4 to get through them more quickly. Please apply sun cream before your child comes to school, but pupils can bring sun cream with them to re-apply. They must be able to apply it themselves and are not allowed to share due to the risk of allergies. Children must bring their water bottle and a sunhat. If they do not have a sunhat they may not be able to fully participate as we may need to send them in early.

We hope that you will understand the reason for making these changes.

We look forward to seeing you tomorrow.
