End of Year Newsletter - July 2021

Dear Parents/ Carers,


Firstly, Eid Mubarak to all our children, families and parents celebrating either today or tomorrow. We wish you a safe and happy Eid with your families.


Tomorrow is offically the last day of term and so we are now at the end of what has been another challenging school year due to the on-going Coronavirus pandemic. The pandemic has caused problems for so many people in many different ways but, from a school point of view, it has been hard for pupils, families and staff. Having said that, I'd like to thank everyone for their hard work and dedication during this difficult time.


To the children, I'd like to say thank you for the way you have shown such perseverance throughout the year in what has been a very difficult time for you. I know that you have made a great effort to keep making progress and succeed and, although I'm sure there is still work to do to catch up, you can feel proud of how you have adapted to learning at home and how you have worked hard when you've been back in school.


To the parents and families, I'd like to say thank you for your support. At times you have had to manage your own commitments whilst also helping your children with their learning at home which I know has been hard but I hope you feel this has been worthwhile. In continuing to support your children to catch up I'm sure you will continue to work closely together with the staff in school next year. Children learn best when there is a good partnership between school and home.


I'd like to also thank all the staff of Regents Park and I'm sure you would too, for their hard work and their adaptability in difficult circumstances. They should also be commended for their passion and commitment to making sure that no child at Regents Park gets left behind. They have shown real dedication to making sure that all the children succeed and that parents and families are well supported. I know that this will also continue next year so I hope they all manage to get a good rest during the holidays and recharge their batteries ready to work hard again next year.




Since Monday, restrictions have begun to be lifted within wider society and, as such, we hope that things will begin to return to normal at school; however, we will be continuing to make decisions to keep everyone safe, including children and staff. We will monitor what happens during the summer but we are hoping to begin lifting our own COVID restrictions in September.


Certainly, we know at this stage that there will be no more class bubbles and children may not have to self-isolate if someone in their class tests positive for COVID-19 in the future.


We have also been told that there is no requirement for adults and staff in school to wear face coverings; however, we will keep this under review. It may be that for the first month of the new school year in September that we continue to ask adults who come into the school building to wear a face covering.


Given the removal of wider COVID restrictions, it is our intention that in September the following things will happen in school:

  • No more class bubbles - children will be able to mix with others in school as well as outside
  • Remove class seating from rows to groups in KS2
  • Return to full school uniform with children changing in school for PE and Forest School
  • Assemblies as normal in school
  • All children returning to have lunch in the dining hall with a choice of food when being served
  • No staggered start or finish to the day (although we may keep some parts of the finish to the day)
  • Breakfast Club and After-School activities to begin from week beginning September 13th


To help make sure that we do our part to limit the transmission of Coronavirus, we will continue to:

  • Promote good health and hygiene
  • Ensure there is thorough cleaning around school
  • Ensure there is good ventilation in classrooms and shared spaces
  • Encourage all staff, children and parents to follow guidance and advice on quarantine, self-isolation, vaccination and testing


We will send more updates to parents about our detailed plans for September nearer the start of the new term.




Last week we were able to get the whole school together in the playground for our Gold Achievers assembly and to be able to say goodbye and good luck to all our Y6 leavers.


We were also able to watch their Y6 leavers assembly which was recorded and filmed and then shared with the whole school - thank you to the Y6 teachers and Mr Marlowe for their hard work in putting the film together for us. It was sad that we were unable to invite parents into school as we would normally do but Y6 parents still have the chance to see the children perform as the video will stay on our school website until this weekend.


The Y6 children have worked hard and done incredibly well to make such excellent progress this year and we are very proud of them. Although they have had a disrupted Y5 and Y6, they have risen to the challenge of remote learning when they needed to and worked hard in school to catch up and plug any gaps in their learning. We are confident that the will go on to great success in their respective secondary schools and wish them all the very best for the future.




It is very sad that we have to say goodbye this summer to some of the staff who have worked so hard with your children in recent years. Unfortunately, the following staff are leaving but we'd like to thank them all and wish them well in their new schools and every success for the future:

  • Miss Miles has worked at Regents Park since 2015 and has taught in Y1, Y3 and Y6. She has also been responsible for Computing across school. We wish her well in her move from Birmingham and at her new school
  • Miss Wilson, Miss Hassan and Miss Ahmed have all taught at Regents Park since 2019. We also wish them all the best in their new schools.
