School carefully follows Government guidance and adopts protective measures to support the Health and Safety of all - measures include:
Grouping children and staff into year group bubbles (children remain in classes for the majority of times indoors)
Staggering arrival / collection times at school and use a 'one-way' system so children/adults/parents are distanced
Cleaning all surfaces and equipment frequently and ventilating classrooms / shared areas
Having a cleaner on site throughout the day
Children being provided with their own 'bag/tray' of pencils, paper, counters, colours etc)
Ensuring that all Handwash and use sanitiser several times a day - teaching children effective routines
Teaching and Following the 'Catch it, Bin it, Kill it' approach to respiratory hygeine
Staggering breaktimes and lunches so that groups (bubbles) do not mix
School Times of the Day - 8th March
Drop off and Collection of Children from School
We would like to respectfully ask that only one parent/carer drops off or collects all of the children from one family. Face Coverings MUST be worn.
Enter through the gate where you need to drop or collect earliest. Please use the 'road' markings around the KS1 playground to guide you. ALL pupils and parents will exit through the large KS1 gate on Mount Street.
Your child’s class teacher will be present on the playground listed above ready to receive your child. In order to reduce risk of increased contact, please leave your child as soon as they are in their class line rather than waiting until they are taken into the school building. We will ensure that all children are appropriately supervised at all times. Parents of Reception children will be permitted to remain with their child whilst they line up at the start of the day for the first few weeks. This is to help their child, who may be new to school, to have a settled start to the day.
Use Class Dojo or phone school to pass on messages to classteachers (to reduce contact and maintain distancing).
At the end of the school day, your child will be brought to the same lining up point that you dropped them off at in the morning. You will be able to collect your child from here. Please do not go to your child’s class door.
Isolating pupils will continue to receive learning remotely after the 8th March. School will be able to loan devices (Chromebooks) to support learning. We will provide learning through a mix of paper based tasks/activities and online lessons.
Please see our learning at home page for ideas/ websites and apps which will help your child learn at home.
