September 2020 return
We are really looking forward to welcoming the children back to school next week on Thursday 3rd September. We are fully committed to your children’s well-being and education and, although their return to school will be different to usual, your child will be supported on their individual learning journey.
It is vital that all children return to school next week and become familiar with new routines with their peers. Teachers will be working hard to ensure that learning gaps are identified quickly and that any learning that has been lost over the past few months is addressed quickly.
In order to keep our school community safe, the start and end time of the school day will need to be staggered in order to reduce the number of parents and children at the school gate at the same time. Please ensure that you are on time!
Staggered starts & ends to the day!
YR, Y1 & Y2; start time 8:45 and finish at 3:00pm
Important: New YR parents, please see Reception Class page on the school website for more detailed information regarding transition into YR (changes have been updated)
Y4 & Y3: start time 9am and finish at 3:15 Y6 & Y5: start time 9:15- Finish 3:30pm
If your child is in KS1 & you have a sibling in KS2, they will both/all, come to school at 8:45 and finish at 3pm.
Pupils must not bring anything into school except their book bag, reading book/research book/homework and water bottle (and lunch box if needed). Due to fire regulations, large rucksacks are not permitted.
The school has taken every measure possible to ensure that school is as safe as possible whilst still ensuring that all students can access their full curriculum entitlement. The government are clear that it is in the best interests for children to return to school and that it is safe for them to do so. The school has completed a full risk assessment to this end, and your child will be in a bubble of thirty with their class, suitably distanced within the classroom, with staggered breaks and lunch times.
All pupils need a water bottle. Bottles must be taken home every night and washed and then brought back each day. We will not have disposable cups available.
Anyone (staff/pupil) whose household member develops symptoms, should not attend school and should self-isolate for 14 days from the onset of symptoms and follow the following steps:
We look forward to seeing you all again soon!
