3rd March 2021

Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome Back to School on Monday 8th March. 

This week all staff are preparing for our children to return to school on Monday 8th March.  We are just as happy as you are that we will be back into the normal routine and will be able to enjoy each other’s company.

The school times are below. These continue to be staggered, so not many parents and children need to come into contact with each other. However, can you PLEASE make sure your child is in the playground 5 minutes before the given time.

The School gate opens at 8.30am. 


Nursery     08.30 – 11.30   12.30 – 3.15

Reception  08.55 –  3.15

Yr1         8.45 – 3.00    please make sure your child is on time to be in class learning at 8.45am

Yr2         8.55 – 3.10

Yr3         8.55 – 3.15    please collect children from the car park in mason street.

Yr4         8.55 – 3.15

Yr5         8.55 – 3.15

Yr6         8.45 – 3.00    please make sure your child is on time to be in class learning at 8.45am

The end of day routine was challenging at first, but we finally got into a routine and the parent waiting time reduced. Just a reminder of the procedures………….

  • Parents to line up in the same designated area outside of the playground – see map –
  • Children are released in order of the line, 1st parent receives child, 2nd parent next etc.
  • Parents who do not want to line up, can wait until the line is gone, then take their child.
  • The end of day collection time is approximate. All teachers try to be on time, however, this depends on a number of factors. (PE, Art, a child wanting to tell about another child)

All risk assessments for Covid-19 will be in place as usual and strictly followed. You can find updated risk assessments on the Townsend Primary Website.

Remember to not send your child into school, if they have any illness or if anyone in the family is ill. Sickness and diarrhoea is a Covid-19 Symptom in children!  Remember to keep us all safe!

Absences – if your child is absent PLEASE phone or use the school app to text the school.

Food Hampers & Lunch Vouchers – Everyone should have received their last food voucher and the last Food Hamper will be on Monday 8th March.  The school will text you when they arrive.

After School Clubs and Breakfast Club.  The School Office will be contacting you regarding these.

Remember to ensure children go to bed early on Saturday and Sunday night, so they are bright for school on Monday 😊

Best Wishes              Anne Stonell

Welcome to Townsend Primary’s website!! 

Our parents, children and staff often refer to our school as the ‘Townsend Family’, this is because we have fostered positive relationships with our families and all visiting professionals, resulting in us working together as a team! These strong links enable us to work and support the whole family, resulting in happy children who receive the best possible education and outcomes. 

We are very much, an inclusive school and work collaboratively with parents, and external agencies to ensure that our provision meets all children’s individual learning, emotional and physical needs.  

Staff, children, parents and governors have high expectations of our children’s learning, achievement and behaviour.  Our curriculum is planned with pupils needs and interests considered, which excites, motivates and challenges children to want to learn, and achieve to the best of their abilities. Pupils leave us having gained a variety of life skills and confidence that will equip them to succeed on their own personal journey to success.

Please do come and visit us, I am in the playground each morning from 8.45am and Rose, Fatima and Iqbal are in the office if you should you have any queries.

Best Wishes

Anne Stonell - Head Teacher
