    Dear children, parents and carers

    Please see below a document which gives some detail of how we are going to phase the year groups back into school from next week.

    In the document there is a chart which shows which year groups will return on which day.

    It also details the new times for your child coming into and out of school and how to access the school site.

    There will be more detail on this over the next few days but in the first instance please don’t hesitate to contact the school directly with any concerns or queries.

    Many thanks; best wishes

  • Message from Mr George 11th June

    Published 11/06/20

    Dear children, parents and carers

    I’m hoping that everyone is fit and healthy and doing as well as possible in the current circumstances.

    There are clear indications from the Government that the number of cases of Covid-19 are very small at the moment and the lockdown procedures are having a positive impact. 


    You may well be aware that last week the Minister, Tracy Vallois announced that the Government is reviewing the situation for schools to extend their availability to children and open up further. At this time, we don’t know what this decision is and I will keep you all informed of the decision once it’s made.

    I’m confident that this will be made clear to parents before the end of this week.

    This week we welcomed back the Year 6 children alongside the children of critical workers already attending school.

    As part of this we have extended our safety and hygiene controls so that there is:

    • Full time cleaning throughout the day

    • Children working in small bubbles/groups of between 9-11 children

    • Regular hand washing and sanitising

    • Limited visitor access to the school

    • Staggered starts to the school day to avoid congestion and crowding at the beginning and end of the day

    • Special curriculum and focus for the children to support any anxieties and concerns they have about the lockdown and Covid-19.

    I would want to reassure all parents that the children coming into school have had excellent experiences and been as safe as we could possibly ensure. They have been happy and engaged with their tasks and the opportunities to meet their friends again as well as their teachers and other staff.

    I am confident that we will be welcoming more children back into school soon and will ensure we have the same focus and care for all children and families.

    Remote Learning/Google classrooms:

    We are aware that the majority of children are still working from home and that this poses a number of challenges not only for the child but for parents who are supporting their child’s learning at this time.

    We have 2 of our Senior Leaders, Miss McInerney and Mrs Le Maistre who are monitoring and reviewing the work that is being posted each day by pupils and coordinating the team of teachers who are responsible for the work.

    As we have more children in school now, we also have fewer staff reviewing the work on a daily basis. However, with the team we have set up we are confident that throughout the week your child’s work and assignments will be reviewed and commented on as much as possible.

    Miss McInerney and Mrs Le Maistre will be writing to you this week to seek your views on how well this is going: what’s been working well; what’s not gone well; how we can improve. We would also want to know what aspects of this remote learning would be useful to keep for the future when all children return to school; how this may help home learning; support parents in home learning/homework etc.


    This is the term when we normally get children to move up to their new year groups and meet their new teachers for September. I am confident that we will have opportunities to do this still before the end of term for all children.

    However, I will ensure that you receive as much information about your child’s new year group and changes for September in the coming weeks, as well as end of year reports and assessments made up until this time.

    Our Year 6 children will be finishing their Primary school careers in July and we are working with the Secondary schools to ensure that they have as many opportunities to be prepared for this important transition as possible.

    I will be sending out links for children and parents to their Secondary schools later this week so direct communication between home and school can be started (if it hasn’t already).

    We are sending out communication and information this week to our families of children starting in Nursery and Reception in September as many of these families will be new to Janvrin school and not have seen our site or met our staff before.

    Events and activities for these children will be taking place later this month and into July.

    Janvrin Winners!

    Last week our Year 6 children won the ‘Du Putron’ challenge cup (again). This is usually held as a team quiz across all schools. Janvrin won the very first event a few years ago and went on to win the ‘All Channel Island’ cup against a team from Guernsey.

    This year the competition was held remotely/on-line so was even more difficult to achieve.

    Well done our Year 6’s and I look forward to seeing the cup engraved with Janvrin’s name once again.

    Wishing everyone health and happiness and we will contact you again this week as soon as we know any further developments for schools.

    Kind regards

    Iain George

  • Year 6 to return to school on 8th June

    Published 28/05/20

    Dear Janvrin families

    please see below the latest press release from the Minister for Education about important updates and developments for initial school opening. This will focus on our Year 6 children at this time.

    Please be assured that over the next few days I will be sending out further information to the parents of children in Year 6 but also further updates to the remaining year groups.

    I am hopeful that this is the beginning of a safe phased back return to school for all children at some point.

    Best wishes to all our families

    Iain George

  • Urgent update from Mr George 18.05.20

    Published 18/05/20

    Dear Janvrin families

    Thank you so much to all of the adults who have come to collect their child’s Google Classroom packs.

    This has gone brilliantly well so far. 

    Children have been able to log on to their classrooms and have started and completed the assignments and activities set by their teachers.

    They have also been able to make some written contact with their class friends and say ‘hello’ to each other after all of these weeks in lockdown.

    We have had a few difficulties with passwords but, once you let us know about this, we were able to get all of these sorted.

    The majority of children are being set at least 2 main activities per day which means that since last Wednesday most children will have had about 8 activities to complete and send to their teacher so far. I have been really impressed with the work that children are sending back and the positive responses from the children. If your child hasn’t logged on yet, don’t worry: they will start their work from the day they log on and will not be expected to complete all of the work already set at this time.

    Access to the Google Classrooms is very, very important now as the lockdown continues so it is essential that all children log in to this resource to access the updated, daily activities.

    If you have not collected your child’s pack from the main office yet, you must do this urgently now please. The office is open from 8.30-4.00 every day.

    If it is difficult for you come to collect the packs please let the school know and we will help you with this.

    If you have difficulties with setting this up and accessing Google Classrooms, that’s not a problem. Let the school know and we will do everything to help you with this.

    If your child’s pack is not collected by Wednesday we will be making polite phone calls home to see when they are going to be picked up and if there are any difficulties at all.

    Kind regards

    Iain George

  • ECOF Youtube

    Published 14/05/20

    As some of you may be aware, we have several groups of ECOF (Every Child Our Future) volunteers who come in and read with some of the children each week. 

    They have really missed reading with the children so, some of them have made a video reading their favourite book.

    If you would like to listen to a story please follow the link below, maybe your child can spot 'their' volunteer!
