Back to school

We hope you've all had a restful summer break and are looking forward to coming back to school.

With changes to government guidelines there are also some changes to what is happening in school. That said we will continue to prioritise minimising the risk of spreading COVID 19.

Start and end of the day

  • The start and end of the day will no longer be staggered. All classes (except Nursery) will start at 8:50 and finish at 3:00. The Nursery morning session will run from 8:50 - 11:50 and the afternoon session from 12:30 - 3:30. Nursery children can be collected from 3:00.

  • Parents and carers are allowed back onto the school site to pick up and collect from their child's class. Pick up points are as follows:

  • Nursery - Nursery door on Arthur Street

  • Reception and Year 1 - EYFS playground on Arthur Street

  • Year 2 - St George's Road entrance - walk through the big playground to the back of the school and follow the small playground round to the Year 2 entrance

  • Year 3 and Year 4 - the big playground in front of the mobile

  • Year 5 - the green door on the small playground

  • Year 6 - the classroom door on the big playground

Bubbles etc

  • We are no longer required to remain in separate bubbles - this means that classes will be able to mix at lunch times, play times and assemblies etc.

  • If there is a local outbreak of COVID 19 in the school we may be instructed by Public Health to re-introduce bubbles and other measures to contain the spread of infection.

  • We will continue with regular hand washing - if your child needs special cleansers or creams please ensure that they have these in school.

  • We will continue to keep the classrooms well ventilated - as with last year please bear this in mind as the weather gets colder - the heating will remain on full throughout the day to keep the building warm.

  • Any parents coming into the school building for meetings etc will be required to wear a face covering

We look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday 7th September at 8:50.
