Annual diary dates of events
We are so excited to be able to return to a full calendar of events this year: sports days, swimming, author visits, school camps, graduation, harvest festivals, Christmas productions, pet shows, dance festivals...
We have really missed being able to offer the children these, and many more, opportunities and sharing these special experiences with our Mendip Green families.
We have now finalised our dates list for the year which includes all of our traditional whole school and year group events as well as some new ones. As always, we will add additional dates throughout the year as and when we are able to organise extra opportunities for the children.
Below is a comprehensive list of dates for events at Mendip Green Primary School this academic year. We do not envisage that these dates will change or that events will be cancelled unless it is for reasons beyond our control or for the safety of the children, staff and wider community. This includes any actions we need to take in response to changes in the government guidance to schools and our risk assessments for COVID 19 as well as the number of cases within the school community.
Several of these dates are marked as TBC as we are awaiting confirmation from other providers. All school performances and ceremonies are for adults only.
For performances that take place during the school day, we will endeavour to provide a crèche if we are able to staff it without a detrimental impact on the teaching and learning of children in other year groups - we will confirm these arrangements closer to each event. For evening performances (and in the event that we are unable to provide a crèche), please arrange your own child care. Wherever possible, MG siblings will be given the opportunity to watch performances of year group shows during the school day.
Full details of events, including any additional dates that will undoubtedly crop up, will be shared via ParentPay throughout the year. We send all information for parents/carers through ParentPay in the first instance. We only use Facebook for reminders.
As you can see, it is going to be a very busy year at Mendip Green.
This year, we aim to share the photographs of events that we normally post on Facebook in the year group section of our website as well. You can also keep up to date with the curriculum in each year group throughout the year.
