Notices and Reminders

Festive Fun

Bedtime Stories, a special visit from Father Christmas, Christmas lunch and lucky alley games day have all contributed to a VERY strong air of excitement in school this week. Thanks to the VSA for organising the fun and to all of you for your generosity. We are delighted that Year 1 children were able to join in some of the activities thanks to MS Teams.

End of Term Carol Service 

We would normally be ending the year with a traditional carol service at St Peter's along with our friends at Thomas Coram. Sadly, this has not been possible this year, but Mr Halls has put together a virtual service the children have watched this in school today. You can view it too on our YouTube channel https://youtu.be/sfQeB4TfIkU.

Staff Vacancy

We are looking to recruit a new site manager in January. This is a part-time post, 20 hours a week, term-time only plus two weeks of holiday work. If you would like to find out more, please visit https://www.teachinherts.com/find-a-job/view,site-manager_61997.htm.

Pick-up Arrangements from January 2021

We have decided to revert to having an hour's lunch break in the middle of the school day, so from January 2021, pick-up times at the end of the school day will be as follows:

Nursery

2:50pm - 3:00pm (soft closing)

Nursery gate

Reception

2:55pm

Butts Meadow gate

Year 1

2:55pm

Prince Edward Street gate

Year 2

3:00pm

Prince Edward Street gate

The earliest pick-up time at Thomas Coram is 3:20pm (Year 5). As with morning drop-off, please let Thomas Coram families move to the front of the line so they have enough time to travel between schools. Morning drop-off times remain unchanged.

Covid Reminder

A reminder that if your child develops Covid-19 symptoms during the holidays and gets a positive test result, please email admin@victoria.herts.sch.uk . We will monitor this email account until Christmas Eve; beyond that point they will not have been a close contact of anyone at school.
