Personal Letter from Mr Speck



FROM 8TH JUNE - Year 6 & Key Worker Children

Thank you for your patience while we have pulled together all of the plans for our Phase 1 re-opening from Monday 8th June. The process has been complex and has had to address many factors, but we hope we have been able to devise a stragey for re-opening that allays your concerns and provides a safe environment for your child.

The documents below provide, hopefully, a clear guide as to the options available to you. This will also have implications for Key Worker children who have been attending school on a regular basis since lockdown, including those of you who have informed us that your child will be returning at some stage before the end of term. It is therefore essential that you check through all documents carefully and direct your queries to us as soon as practical.

At a glance, we are providing here:

  • Joint letter on behalf of Mr Speck and Mr Hartnack (Chair of Govenrors)
  • Frequently Asked Questions & Common Concerns document: We think this will cover the vast majority of your queries but supporting documents are available upon request;
  • Letter from Monkwearmouth Academy regarding Transition arrangements
  • Access zones for the safe re-entry of children to the grounds and classroom 'pod' allocations/staff in charge
  • Essential update letter for Key Worker families

You will receive a text message on Thursday 4th June to inform you of the 'pod' your child has been assigned to; we are also hoping to share some images of the classrooms as they have been set up for safety, just so you can see the layouts and adaptations we have made.

Once you have reviewed all of this information, we would kindly ask you respond to key questions by the following deadlines:

  1. Decision on Monkwearmouth Transition : By Friday 5th June 12pm AT THE LATEST
  2. School Meal Offer : Will your child be taking up a school prepared packed lunch as stated (this replaces the hot meal option) or will you be providing your own from home : By Friday 5th June 9.00am AT THE LATEST
  3. Arrival/Departure Arrangements: How will your child to get to school : Walking alone or accompanied by adult : Deadline Friday 5th June
  4. Final Decisions: If you have since changed your mind about sending your child back to Fulwell Juniors in any capacity, you MUST let us know by Friday at the latest (this is irrespective of the MWA transition plan).

Finally, we would advise those of you that are considering whether to send your child to MWA for the transition fortnight that we have organised children as best we can into 'friendship' groups and whilst we cannot gurantee that this has been a perfect process, it is the best we have been able to plan given the challenges before us all. This information has been shared to you seperately via Marvellous Me.

Fulwell Junior School Curriculum Intent

At Fulwell Junior School we have purposefully shaped a Curriculum that is unique to our school and wider community.  It is designed to promote academic excellence, encourage the wonder of discovery and prepare pupils for the World of Work.

Through our research into our Local Labour Market profile and discussions with local employers, colleges and universities we have identified three core areas: Communication, Critical Thinking and Aspiration which underpin future success. As a result we have deliberately designed our essential skills curriculum with a Further Education style framework with the aim to broaden our pupils’ horizons and aspirations for future pathways. To deliver this we will develop confidence, reward endeavour, value integrity, encourage resilience, promote teamwork and instil a sense of duty.

Our intent is to ensure that all pupils receive the very best teaching and learning experiences across all subject areas.  We believe that teachers teach best when they are both knowledgeable and passionate about their subject. To reflect this we have established Specialist Teaching Hubs and immersive enrichment learning opportunities across our school. By the time our pupils leave us, we aim to provide the children with the skills, knowledge, support and experiences that will enable them to feel happy, be healthy and gain the foundations to lead a successful life. Through making the most of the learning opportunities on offer to them, pupils will be able to formulate good choices in relation to their futures through experiencing high quality careers education and therefore fulfilling their potential to ‘Be the best they can be’.
