Dear Parents / Carers,


Once again thank you for your continued support as we navigate the constant changes that Covid-19 brings. We are and will continue to do our very best to keep our school community safe and well


From Monday 28th September all adults will be asked to wear face coverings when entering the school grounds. If you are exempt from this, please do speak to a member of staff on the gate. 


When on school premises please ensure that you are maintaining social distancing measures.  


We request that only 1 adult per family enters the school grounds when dropping off and collecting your child/ren. 


Thank you.

Following the government's new campaign to prevent the spread of coronavirus "Hands, Face, Space" we are encouraging Parents and Carers to wear a face covering at drop off and pick-up. Thank you for your continued support, it is greatly appreciated.

School fund

Although we are unable to go on school trips in the Autumn term, your child will be taking part in a number of enrichment activities in class and therefore the school fund is still needed and greatly appreciated.

The contribution is a one off payment of £20. If this is too much please make a smaller contribution. This includes pupils eligible for Pupil Premium. If every parent contributes something, it will make such a difference to what we can offer.

Please make your contribution using:
ParentPay under the item ‘Voluntary Contribution 2020-21’.
Cheque (payable to Avenue Primary Academy)
Cash in a clearly marked envelope (to be given to a member of staff on the gate or directly to the office – who will give you a receipt.)
Your contribution is entirely voluntary, but you will understand the difference that it makes.

Thank you for your continued support.

Parents, carers and visitors are kindly asked to wear a face covering whenever they enter the school building. Thank you for your continued support.
