St. Michael’s Weekly Post – 23rd April 2021

23rd April 2021


COVID-19 lateral flow test

Following this week’s suspected case of COVID-19, we wanted to firstly thank everyone for your support and swift response where required.  Although, lateral flow tests can now be undertaken across the country if you do not have COVID-19 symptoms, primary school children however are not required to do so. More information can be found on the NHS website.


Parents Evening

Parents Evenings will take place on Tuesday 4th May 2021 and Wednesday 5th May 2021, after school, and will be bookable via the IRIS (ParentMail) app later today, the same system as last time.  The appointments will be via telephone and will be in 10 minute slots. When making the booking we ask that you add in the comments section of the appointment the best phone number to call you on for your appointment slot. Should you have any difficulty in making the booking please email admin@stmichaelsaldbourne.co.uk.

We are currently reviewing our methods of communication to enable us to communicate quickly and easily with you.

In the meantime, as a reminder, we have class email addresses (see below) which you can use if you need to contact your class teacher, however if your message is urgent or requires immediate attention please call the office (01672 540434).

If we should need to contact parents of the whole school we will email you from admin@stmichaelsaldbourne.co.uk and where appropriate mark the message as urgent.










Message from the PTA – Rocket fund

The PTA would like to thank every single person who so kindly donated to our ROCKET FUND at the end of last term. With all of your incredibly generous donations we managed to raise a whopping £3741 to add to the Forest school pot, which means that we have enough to order the new forest school building. We are so lucky to have such a great bunch of parents and friends who support the school, thank you so very much!


Message from Aldbourne Parish Council – Goddard’s Playarea

We would like to remind families that dogs are not allowed in the Goddard’s Playarea.  It has been great to see so many children using the park but please do not bring dogs into the area.
