Message from Mrs Brown, Head of Year 5....

Mr Calmels, myself and most importantly – Honey – our school therapy dog will be going in to visit our catchment schools and meeting the pupils over the next few weeks..

Tuesday 28th June

Pupils will be coming to watch our school production of ‘The Lion King’ on Tuesday 28th June from 10-12pm. Out of catchment pupils will have already had details of this. In catchment schools will be escorted with a member of their school staff to and from the production on buses.

Friday 1st July

As you are aware transfer day is on Friday 1st July. This is when pupils will come to school and get the chance to meet their form tutor and new class. The day is all about helping the pupils to feel more at ease with the start in September and to get the pupils making new friends within their form groups.

Catchment schools will be bought to school on a bus from their Lower School, we will also transport them back with a member of RBA staff at the end of the day. Shefford pupils will be walked to RBA and collected by Shefford staff at 2.30pm.

For out of catchment pupils, please can you arrange to have your child here by 9.30am. Can we ask that you drop them at the main reception where they will be met by a member of staff. Those pupils will wait with a member of staff and can be collected from outside the front of school at 2.30pm.

Pupils can bring a packed lunch if they wish, but we would really like to offer them the chance to experience the delicious food in our canteen and ask that pupils preferably come to school with £2.40 in order to do this. The correct change would be very helpful for your child.

We are really looking forward to meeting all the pupils and starting them on their Bloomfield journey.

As you as parents and carers of the pupils are a part of this journey also, we would like to take this opportunity to invite you to attend an informal meet and greet session after transfer day from 4 – 5.30pm.   This will be an opportunity for your child to show you their form room and for you to talk to key members of RBA, if you have any questions regarding SEN, buses, PTA, etc. Our school uniform provider will also be on site, should you wish to try uniform and order.

There will be drinks and refreshments on hand to purchase, provided by our marvellous PTA, so please support them in raising funds for your school.

We also have some exciting activities for the pupils to try, provided by RBA PE staff and an outside company. Please can we ask for pupils to wear trainers so they can take part in these activities.

We are really looking forward to meeting all our new families.

Kind regards,

Mrs Brown.
