Reopening School to all Pupils on 8th March 2021
We will reopen our school to all children on Monday 8th March 2021. To do so safely, for children and staff, we will need to put certain measures in place to protect us all. We are faced with an ever changing picture and so there may be changes to our plans - if this is the case, we will communicate these with you.
Children will remain in their class bubble and will not mix with children from other classes.
Arriving at/leaving school
Nursery will continue to run their sessions as normal: 8:45am - 11:45am and 12:15pm - 3:15pm. Lunch session is between 11:45am - 12:15pm.
Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will arrive at school at 8:45am. They will be collected at 2:45pm. Reception children will use the Reception classroom door (at the front of school) and Year 1 and 2 children will use the main entrance to access their classrooms at the back of the hall. These are the doors they will exit at the end of the day also.
Children in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 will arrive at school at 8:50am. They will be collected at 3.00pm. They will enter and exit school through their classroom’s outside doors, located around the side and back of school and accessed via the gate leading to the junior playground. Staff will be on hand to help direct children to the correct door so please ensure they’re not worried about this.
For those who have children in different classes, the arrival and collection times will be that of the youngest child.
Due to the need to socially distance, all families must stick to their allotted times and therefore must not be late.
There will be breakfast and afterschool club from 7am, in the hall, until 5:00pm. Whilst the risk assessment allows for children to mix in out of school clubs we will try to be keep children in their year groups during this time. At the moment, we will not be providing other after school activity clubs.
Hand washing will continue to be high priority and hand sanitiser is available throughout school.
Deep cleaning will take place at the end of every day as well as continuous cleaning throughout the day.
If your child has any symptoms, contact school in the first instance. If any children show symptoms at school we will contact you immediately and Public Health guidance will be followed.
Children will be expected to wear their full school uniform apart from on the one day per week where they will wear their full PE kit.
Children will have their own personal equipment to use in class but can bring a school bag to school which will be kept in their locker.
The Government has confirmed that attendance is compulsory and the usual attendance procedures will apply. However, if your child has been given clinical guidance, please contact school and we will discuss how we can support you.
