Dear Cloudside families and friends,
Thank you for supporting our school during this global pandemic. As you are aware, the Government are looking at easing the lockdown status in a phased and controlled way; therefore, in line with guidance from L.E.A.D. Trust we will be welcoming back our Year 6 pupils on Monday 8th June.
We have updated our Behaviour Policy because of our new working arrangements, please do look at – Click here.
For those who remain at home in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6, the expectation is that learning continues to happen remotely with support from school.
The useful links below will continue to support you and your children, especially with their emotional well-being.
Please continue to keep yourselves safe, observing social distancing and Government guidance.
We are here to support you, but ask that if you need us, you do so via email or phone calls.
Take good care
Mrs S Wass and the Cloudside Staff

Erewash Voluntary Action has set up a new service in response to the COVID-19 Virus and people who are in self-isolation. This will be a time limited service to provide a one-off shop or prescription collection service in response to those most in need; to people who have no other support network at this difficult time to provide them with some much-needed shopping essentials.
Self-referrals for this service can now be made by either calling Erewash Voluntary Action on 0115 9466740 (9.00 – 3.30pm) or complete the attached CV-19 Referral Form with as much information as possible and return to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once the referrals have been received, they will allocate a DBS checked and trained member of staff or volunteer. Please call to limit exposure, they will not be conducting a face to face meeting prior to allocation, so it is imperative that a CV-19 Referral Form is completed in full.
Also if you require further support please contact email@example.com
