We have been keeping a close eye on the weather ready for our much-anticipated SP FEST next Tuesday (19th July pm).
It is predicted to be very warm with temperatures around 27 degrees. In response to this we have been forced to re-look at our plans for the afternoon.
The children are very excited and ready to perform but we also need to ensure our children, and families, are safe and not exposed to the sun for a long period of time. Therefore, we have decided to provide you with a running order with ESTIMATED times (see below) to help avoid you sitting through the whole afternoon, if this is something that you would prefer to do. The children in our care will then complete their performance on the stage and then instead of sitting through the whole festival, they will watch the next performance before returning to class. This allows our pupils to perform and be the audience whilst ensuring that the children are not outside for too long.
The Rock Steady Bands will also perform as planned. This will take place halfway through the concert.
This, to us, seems like a compromise which allows our children to still take part and enjoy the day.
If you are not attending the whole show can we please ask that you enter the school grounds quietly and find a place to sit in the allocated area until you are ready to leave – after all, a real festival has some fluidity of adults around the grounds!
We look forward to seeing you on the day for as long as you feel comfortable!
(Please note, if the weather is cooler - around the 20 degree mark- we will run the event as usual).
