We all look forward to seeing you on Monday. Don’t worry there will be lots of staff out on duty on the first day. It will help though if your child can remember their teacher’s name.
1. Rucksacks will now be allowed back in school.
2. Bikes and scooters are allowed back (storage on the top playground). We do not recommend that children come to school on either, unless they are supervised by an adult or have taken part in the ‘Bikewise’ training scheme.
3. Masks on site are now optional.
4. Entry and exit:
· Reception with Parents/Year 1 with Parents/Year 2 with Parents/Year 3 children/Year 5 children/Year 6 children enter up the ramp from 8.40am. R/Y1/Y2 Parents drop off their children and then leave using the track (similar to last term)
· Year 4 enter and leave ‘under’ the car park barrier (enter from 8.40am and leave at 3.25pm)
· At the end of the day the gate opens at 3.10pm and then R/Y1/Y2 Parents enter using the ramp. Parents pick up at 3.15pm and leave using the track (similar to last term)
· Year 3/5/6 children leave independently using the ramp at 3.25pm
5. We will continue to keep the classrooms as well ventilated as we can and maintain our COVID cleaning and handwashing procedures.
6. We will ‘fog’ each class as required.
7. Playtimes will return to normal but our face to face assemblies will resume at a class or year group level, rather than the whole school, altogether; we will still carry out our Friday whole school assembly by ‘Teams’ for the foreseeable future.
8. The Walking Buses will resume on Monday 20th September. Please book as they are very popular.
9. Our after-school clubs will resume this year but please remember teachers do not get paid extra for these and run them because they like working with the children and enjoy teaching them new skills and activities. Please be patient if you don’t immediately get a place or we have to split groups to run more sessions. The ‘Clubs letter’ will go out within the first two weeks.
10. Test and Trace will now contact you and the NHS will advise you what to do should a member of your close family or you, test positive for COVID.
11. If your child hasn’t tested positive and is supposed to be in school we won’t be setting work for them at home even if a close family member is isolating (positive).
