Dear Parents/Carers,

I would like to say a huge THANK YOU and WELL DONE to all the children who participated in the Cross Country Championships at Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The children did incredibly well, achieving some great results – you are all a credit to the Academy!

Many thanks also to Mr Dewhurst, Ms Farrington and Ms D’Costa for arranging this and for the parents who volunteered.

In these uncertain times, as you can appreciate meetings and events do have to be cancelled at very short notice, I would like to thank you for your patience and understanding. With this in mind please make sure that you have registered with ParentPay, our new online payment and communication system in order to receive the latest, most up to date communications as Parentmail has now been disabled.

The Senior Leadership Team are having regular meetings and contingency plans are in place should it come to that point where schools are forced to close, this will be shared with parents/carers when deemed necessary. Please take the time to talk to your children about COVID-19 as this will help them to gain a good understanding of the current climate thus removing any myths and alleviating any worries or anxieties they may have. Please take the time to read the CET COVID-19 Weekly Updates that are sent out via ParentPay, they are full of useful information and signposts to both Educational and Community Services links. Copies are also included in the Pickhurst Post and on the Pickhurst website under Information/Parent Letters.

Please contact the office if you have not yet registered via email office@pickhurst.com.

Unfortunately it has been brought to my attention  that parents are parking on the grass verges by the slip roads at the front of the Academy. Not only is this very dangerous, it is very disrespectful to the local surroundings. It is causing lots of upset to our neighbours. We have received photos from our neighbours of the cars that have been seen parking like this, and these have now been forwarded on to Bromley Borough Traffic Enforcement.

Next Friday 20th March we are celebrating World Down Syndrome day. Children should come to school in full uniform wearing odd socks in recognition of this day.

Kind regards,

Mr Siggs

Principal
