COVID-19 UPDATE - SUMMER HOLIDAYS & RE-OPENING SEPTEMBER 2020

We would like to say a massive thank you to all the Children, Parents, Carers, Staff, Volunteers and Governors of Bellefield School for coming together in this time of crisis. The school is strange place without everyone in it but the team are rallying together and ensuring we can provide a safe place for the children who need our care. Our thoughts and best wishes go out to all of those at home and we look forward to seeing you all again soon.

Good luck and best wishes to all our Year 6 children continuing their journey at Secondary School next year. You have grown so much in your seven years at Bellefield and we will miss you all. The end to your school year wasn't as any of us expected but you've done such an amazing job in such a strange situation, you are a credit to our school! 

To all the children who will be returning to Bellefield in September, both old and new, we wish you all a restful Summer break and can't wait to see you all in September! School will close to pupils from Wednesday 21st July 2020 until 2nd September 2020.

Social media advice for parents and guardians

Many children and young people are using social media platforms to keep in touch with friends. However, with increased time online comes increase risk, so it is important we talk to children and young people to ensure they know the risks online, and where to go for help and support when needed.
There are two documents attached to raise awareness of the issues and offer advice- please click HERE and HERE.

For those children entitled to Free School Meals, please check ParentMail for communications sent out in respect of your vouchers and access to the Summer Food Fund. Please contact the School Office on 01225 753530 if you have any issues. Please note that these vouchers are for low income family children eligible for Free School Meals, this is different to Universal Free School Meals which entitles all children up to Year 2 to school dinners.
