Morning drop off arrangements
With cases of Covid rising and the Government increasing restrictions, we want to ensure that the school remains open as long and as safely as possible. So from Monday 5th September, children should be dropped off at the school gate either at the front of the school or at the back and then walk into the grounds on their own.
Please ensure that your children walk through the gates between 8.40 and 9am, which is the schools start time - no earlier. There will be a member of staff at the gate to supervise the children as they come onto site during these times.
If you need to talk to an adult please see the member of staff at the gate or alternatively phone or email in and your child’s class teacher will contact you.
We would be grateful if parents could be mindful about social distancing and not arrive on the school grounds early/stay at the gates once their children have gone onto the playground.
If you need to enter the school site, you should always wear a mask.
Afternoon pick up arrangements
At the end of the day, children should be collected from the designated area for your child’s class.
We have curriculum work on our school website and this is updated by the teachers with whatever work is happening in your child’s class that week. New work is added to the website every week.
So, in the event of lockdown / self- isolation your child can still keep on track with work in their class. Please see the year group curriculum pages.
The school will seek advice from the Department for Education in the first instance. Following this it is highly likely that we would need to shut down the class bubble where the positive case had occurred. Parents would be expected to keep their children at home for a period of 14 days and follow government guidelines in terms of self isolation.
Further details of how work could be accessed for children would be sent to parents at this time.
Useful sources of advice and support for children, young people and families about Coronavirus:
When your child is ill or injured, it can be difficult to decide if/when to call your child's GP, NHS 111, or go to the Accident and Emergency Department. While the Government is asking everyone to stay at home, it can be confusing to know what to do. The below guide provides some information on what to do if your child is unwell.
