An poem by Mr. Smith:                                                           A poem for the kids to read,

in these crazy times of need.

Listen carefully to the advice,

you never know it may save a life.

Wash your hands and catch your sneeze,

read your books and exercise please!

Life is going to be a bumpy road,

so keep yourself in super, clean mode.

Speak to the ones you want to see,

using cards, letters and online as it’s free.

Teachers want to know you are well,

so send an email, just to tell.

Live, laugh, work and enjoy your play,

even if in our houses we must stay.

Wash the plates and tidy your room,

use something called a mop and broom.

Try and complete the work we set,

Ask for help, please do not sweat.

Do not rush, just take your time,

and listen to the words of my rhyme.

Hopefully we will be back together soon,

having fun, singing loudly and smiling too.

Hello All

We want to reassure you that we have no confirmed cases of COVID-19 (coronavirus) at our school.  We have, however, been notified, that some families who have underlying health problems, or, are in close contact with someone who is showing symptoms are following the current government guidelines and have chosen to self-isolate.

Chris Larke-Phillips

Head teacher

The message above has been emailed to all parent(s) / carer(s) of children who attend both St. Michael’s on the Mount C of E (VC) Primray School and St. George Church of England Primary School, today, Wednesday 18 March 2020.

 

17.03.20    Whole School – COVID 19 update to all – 17.03.20

Please find above a link to the letter that was emailed to all parent(s) /carer(s) of children who attend St. Michael’s on the Mount C of E (VC) Primary School,  on Tuesday 17 March 2020.

 

17.03.20  –  We have recieved the following message from the Foodbank:

Please find below the current position of how the Bristol Trussell Trust Foodbanks are going to operate in light of the Coronavirus

Trussell Trust Foodbanks Covered

  • East Bristol Foodbank Outlets:

Kingswood – Bourne Christian Centre

Easton – Tudor Road

Easton – St. Mark’s Road Community Café

Fishponds – Fishponds Baptist Church

 

  • North Bristol Foodbank Outlets:

Horfield – Ebenezer Church

Filton – Revive Charity Shop

Lockleaze – St. Mary’s Church

Southmead – Greenway Centre

Patchway – St. Chad’s Church

Yate – The Candle

Thornbury – Thornbury Baptist Church

Mangotsfield – Resound Church

 

  • Bristol North West Foodbank

Avonmouth – St. Andrew’s Church

Lawrence Weston – Hope Church

Henbury – Emmanuel Chapel

Hotwells – Hope Chapel

Steps we are taking or may have to take

  1. In the first instance we will try to continue to operate as usual where possible, but with the precautions of asking all clients to wash their hands on entry to the Foodbank, not putting biscuits out on plates and pre-packing all fresh fruit, veg and bread into sealed bags so they are not handled.  Volunteers serving drinks will wear disposable gloves where possible.
  2. In the past two days we have seen a drop in donations and a panic surge in people coming to the Foodbank.  We are therefore rationing some items.
  3. In the light of current guidelines we will not be holding café or offering refreshments, but just receiving clients at the pick up points and handing them a pre-packed parcel.
  4. If churches are told to close, then that would mean most of our Foodbank outlets will have to close. We will let you know if this is going to happen and if the following procedures will kick in at each Foodbank:

Bristol North West FoodbankIF our outlets close, our Social Justice Hub, St. Andrew’s Church, Avonmouth Road, Avonmouth BS11 9EN, will continue to remain open for the collection of emergency ration food boxes on weekday mornings, 10-1pm.  Agencies will be able to pick up boxes for delivery and will home deliver where possible to those self-isolating.

North Bristol Foodbank –  Ebenezer Church, Filton Avenue, Horfield, BS7 0BA, will be open for the collection of emergency ration food boxes on weekday mornings ONLY if we close other outlets

East Bristol Foodbank – Our worst case scenario is we will have emergency boxes available at our outlets at the normal times, that will be able to be picked up at the door if the outlets are closed.

The school can refer, electronically, families who are in real need.  Please email us: st.michael.p@bristol-schools.uk
