Friday 5th June - UPDATE FOR PARENTS

Dear Parents and Carers, 

Following on from the Trust Board decision, and letter from our CEO Sajid Gulzar, Sutton Park Primary will begin a phased reopening to a wider number of pupils from Monday 15th June. In order to prepare for this and ensure all of the necessary control measures are in place, our keyworker provision will be closed next week on Monday and Tuesday. (8th/ 9th June)

Before the half term break, senior leaders called the parents of children in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 to establish how many children were planning to return to school.

Year 6 Transition to Secondary School

Dear Parents

We recognise that settling into a new school is a big step for you and your child. Our aim is to make this a very happy and smooth transition. We want to encourage all our children to reflect on the positive memories and experiences they have had in their primary schools and to encourage this positive mind-set moving forwards to this new and exciting chapter in their life. We appreciate the challenges that families are facing and want to provide as much support as possible. With this in mind, the Pastoral Team at PACT have been looking at the best way of supporting all year 6 children in these unprecedented times, with the transition to secondary schools. 


03/06/20: School reopening update

Dear Parents and Carers,

I previously wrote to you on 22nd May with regard to the date a decision on opening schools to more pupils would be made. This morning, the trust board of the Prince Albert Community Trust met to make this decision. As I am sure you can appreciate, there are many things to consider when trying to decide what is best for our children, staff and parents in this situation. In all my years of leading schools, this is by far the most difficult situation my team and I have faced and making the right decisions for our school community has been exceptionally challenging. 

Alternative FSM provision w/c 1st June

During this period of school closure, we are pleased to be able to continue to offer eligible parents and pupils access to free school meals by supplying supermarket eGift cards, that can be spent locally to you.

During the week commencing 1st June, eligible pupils will be issued with a £45 eCode, the equivalent of £15 per week, £3 per meal, for three weeks. Your £45 eGift card can be used in multiple transactions and on multiple visits, until you have spent the full value of the eGift card. eCodes can be redeemed online for an eGift card for the supermarket of your choice by visiting


22/05/20: School reopening update

Dear Parents and Carers,

I last wrote to you on 19th May about the possible timetable for the opening of our schools. Following a meeting of the PACT trust board this afternoon, the board have decided to delay that decision until 3rd June. The board are keen for our schools to open as soon as it is safe to do so and will decide on an opening date for year 1 pupils in the first instance. The trust board are in agreement with plans to stagger opening for different year groups as previously communicated. I will therefore update you further on 3rd June.


School Opening Update from our CEO

Dear Parents and Carers,

I am writing to you with more detail following the government’s announcement about opening schools to more children from after half term, subject to further scientific advice (due on 28th May). We have now received further information and guidance from the Department for Education, which we are using to plan for receiving more children.


School Opening Update

Dear Parents

I am currently working with senior colleagues on a comprehensive plan for the re-opening of all of our schools to some children. Parents/carers of children in Y1 will have been contacted on Monday 18th May to ask if they will send their child in should school be open after 1st June. Parents/carers of pupils in nursery, reception and year 6 will also receive a call this week asking the same.
