We are looking forward to having a return to our normal school routines and procedures.
From Friday 3rd September, when the children return to school after the summer holiday break, our school times will revert to pre-covid times.
8.40am gates open and children and parents can enter the school site
8.45am -8.55am classroom doors will be open for children to come into their classes
8.55am all registers close. Children arriving after this time will be marked as late and will need to report to the front office.
12.00pm – 1.00pm lunch for children Year R and Years 1 and 2
12.10pm – 1.10pm lunch for children in Years 3 to 6
3.15pm gates open to parents
3.20pm end of the school day
For safety reasons, access to the school site will not be allowed for parents and children before 8.40am. Please ensure that your child is not on site unaccompanied before this time.
Children in Years 6, 5, 4, 1, Reception and Nursery classes will enter and exit the school, through their external classroom doors.
Year 2 and 3 will enter via the entrance or classroom doors by the front of the school. Year 3 pupils will exit by the same route.
Children in Year 2 will exit via classrooms onto the back playground as indicated on the map. This will alleviate congestion at the front of the school.
Children with symptoms of Covid – 19 should not come to school. We recommend that parents organise a PCR test (not Lateral Flow – LFD) for them. Please let the school know the outcome.
Children no longer need to isolate if they have been in contact with someone with Covid-19. This only changes if they develop symptoms themselves.
Children who show symptoms of Covid-19 in school will be isolated and you will be asked to collect and take them for a PCR test.
Any visiting professional, contractor or parent will not be granted access to the school if symptomatic or a known positive case.
We will continue to maintain frequent handwashing, good respiratory hygiene, enhanced cleaning of shared areas and ensure good ventilation. The government no longer advises the wearing of face coverings within school, however, there may be some circumstances where they are worn or chosen to be worn.
Our outbreak/contingency plan will outline plans should there be an outbreak, or we need to temporarily re-introduce bubbles or other measures.
Our risk assessment has been reviewed in the light of current guidance. Rest assured that we will strive to keep a sensible balance between maintaining measures to reduce risk whist ensuring that this does not impact on our curriculum and the experience that children have in school.
