ALL CHILDREN WILL BE ABLE TO RETURN TO SCHOOL IN SEPTEMBER
BUBBLES: We will have four ‘bubbles’ in school made up of each phase:
Early Years (nursery & reception) bubble
KS1 (year 1 & year 2) bubble
Lower KS2 (year 3 & year 4) bubble
Upper KS2 (year 5 & year 6) bubble
ACCESS INTO SCHOOL: Sadly, we do not anticipate being in a position to be able to welcome parents into the school building in September. We have put safety precautions in place in our main reception for any parents needing to come to the main reception. However, we ask that parents and carers remain respectful of social distancing and only come in to reception if it is absolutely necessary. The school office telephone number is 01942701147.
WHOLE SCHOOL EVENTS: There will be no whole school events for the Autumn term. This will mean there will be no whole school assemblies, Meet the Teacher meetings or Pupil Review meetings. You will receive a letter from your child’s teacher at the beginning of the term to update you with any information you require about their new class.
START AND FINISH TIMES: At this stage we do not anticipate needing staggered start or finish times. Staggered starts and finishes create problems for parents and carers of children in different year groups. So instead of this, we are opening school from 8.40 – 9.00 a.m. to allow the children a 20 minute slot to filter in and at the end of the day, you can collect your child between 2.50 – 3.10 p.m. to relieve congestion at the end of the day.
When you are dropping off or collecting your child(ren), please leave the school premises as quickly as possible to ease any congestion and be respectful of people’s space. We hope that parents of older children will feel happy to say goodbye to their children at the school gates.
DROP OFF AND COLLECTION POINTS:
Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will all be dropped off and collected from the usual places. There will be a one way system in place to avoid any congestion and maintain social distancing. We are having major roofing works at the moment on the KS1 building. This is due to be finished in a few weeks but in the meantime please look out for signs
directing you which way to go during the first few days.
Nursery: Nursery building
RR: adjacent to the staff carpark
RL: follow the one way system to the first classroom around the main building
Year 1: KS1 playground, Year 1 doors
Year 2: KS1 playground, Year 2 doors
Year 3: drop off and collect around the back of the KS2 building on the Year 3/4 playground
Year 4: drop off and collect from the Arena
Year 5: drop off and collect from outside the Year 5 classrooms
Year 6: drop off and collect from the front Y5/6 playground
FIRST STEPS: Will be operating as normal from Wednesday 2nd September. Please telephone the staff directly on 01942 711964 to discuss / arrange breakfast or afterschool placements.
COMMUNICATION WITH SCHOOL/TEACHERS:
In order to comply with social distancing requirements, parents will not be allowed in the school building. If you wish to speak to your child’s teacher, please do so at the classroom door at the beginning or end of the school day, maintaining distance and staying outside. If you need an appointment, then please telephone school and arrange to speak to a member of staff at a mutually convenient time. Please continue to use Class Dojo in the usual manner. Parents can come into the school office, but please ensure only one person at a time.
