Christmas Concert at Christ Church Years 1 to 6

Dear Parents and Carers of Children in Years 1 to 6,

CHRISTMAS CONCERT AT CHRIST CHURCH – 11TH DECMEBER 2019

As part of our focus on community cohesion, and in preparation for Christmas, we have been invited to attend a Christmas service at Christ church in Ware by Father John on Wednesday 11th December 2019.

The plan is to walk down to the church together for the service to begin at 9.45am, please let us know if you would like to join us. Children should come to school at the normal time for registration, and we will return to school in time for lunch.

Please return the slip below to give permission for your child to attend the service. Alternatively, do let us know if you wish to withdraw your child from the experience. Please see the guidance below.

Some practical suggestions if a pupil is withdrawn from RE related activities  

  • Unless the child is being provided with a religious education away from the school premises the school continues to be responsible for the supervision of any child withdrawn by its parent from RE
    • Alternative curriculum planning for one pupil should be avoided by the school, class teachers may draw on play areas, listening stations, libraries, topic books, computers and extension or support activities to provide natural alternatives to the RE.
    • It may be possible for the parents to send their child some alternative work/ reading.
  • Withdrawal should not be a chance for pupils to ‘catch up’ with homework. 

As the school remains responsible for children whose parents choose to withdraw their child from RE activities, the trip can only take place if we have enough adults to supervise the children to and from the church. Please return the slip to your child’s class teacher by Friday 6th December 2019.

Yours sincerely, 

Mrs Griffin

Deputy Head
