Information regarding the re-opening of school for the 2020-21 school year
We hope this information is helpful to parents in planning for September.
Schools have not yet received written guidance following the announcement made by Mr Weir's last week. Hopefully the written guidance when issued will link with the information noted in the attached letter and no further changes will have to be made.
We are looking forward to welcoming all our pupils back to school in September.

School Uniform 2020-21
During the 2018-19 school year, the School Council, Parent Council and Board of Governors worked together to review our school uniform. The agreed school uniform for our school is noted in the attached note.
In recognition of the school's 10th anniversary of integrated education a new logo was chosen. Please note the new logo will be introduced within our school uniform for the 2021-22 school year.
We thank our uniform suppliers for all that they are doing to ensure that parents and pupils have what they need. It has been a difficult time as well for our suppliers as their orders were also affected with the difficult situation that Covid-19 has brought to all our lives. Please ensure that if you need something and it is not available that you let your local uniform supplier know as they are eager to help in any way possible. There are four weeks until the 1st September and our uniform suppliers are confident that pupils and parents will have what they need for September.
We thank our parents for their support in ensuring that our pupils come to school well presented in their school uniform each day.

Access To IXL Online Learning Package for Year 5 and Year 6 Pupils
In order to support pupil learning over the summer months and beyond, Year 5 and Year 6 pupils have been given targeted support through IXL, courtesy of funding from the NI Executive. The access is via a free 30-day trial and after this, the Department of Education will cover the cost of the licence for one year. The letter from IXL is attached to this notice, giving further information about the features of the site.
IXL Learning offers both Numeracy and Literacy questions that pupils can complete at their own pace and are adapted to their own level. Year 5 and Year 6 pupils will be given their own unique username and password for IXL at the Drive By Goodbye event and these will be posted out along with Annual Reports for parents who were unable to attend.
Once the username and password has been received, pupils should log in at https://uk.ixl.com/
Whilst the content of the site is aligned to the Northern Ireland Curriculum, please note that on this site, Year 4 in the English system is the same as Year 5 in Northern Ireland and Year 5 in the English system is the same as Year 6 in Northern Ireland. Pupils can either work through activities or topics at their own pace. I trust that you will find this resource to be of benefit in preparation for the next school year.

Update - AQE Information
Please find attached information from our CEO, Darrin Barr regarding a change of dates for the 2020 assessments.
Whilst we strongly advise parents to register using the online form, a version of the form will be available on the AQE website which can be printed and completed by hand, we have also attached a copy to this e-mail. The form can then be posted to the AQE Office, though we are not accepting forms delivered by hand at the moment. Please note that due to the lockdown conditions, paper forms received by the AQE Office will take much longer to process than the online forms.
