Back to School Monday 8th March 2021
We are very much looking forward to welcoming the children back to school on Monday 8th March. As always, THANK YOU for all your support and co-operation.
In order for staff to prepare for the return of children, there are two inset days this week:
1) Thursday 4th March 2021
2) Friday 5th March 2021
There will be no live lessons on zoom for these two days, but there are extra activities under each year group should you wish to keep busy. In addition to this, why not take part in our ‘Feelings’ art project.
In line with Government guidance, school attendance is mandatory from 8th March. If your child is ill and unable to attend school, the usual protocol of absence
reporting should be followed.
Children will be wearing full school uniform as usual & all children should wear black shoes (not trainers). Also, everyday your child needs their patka!
School book bags are allowed but we remind you that children do not bring in any personal items such as pencil cases, keyrings, hand sanitiser, footballs etc
as this is all provided by the school. PE lessons will be taking place so ensure children come into school wearing their PE kit on their allocated days.
Breakfast club and after school clubs will not resume this term. If there is a demand, potentially, this could recommence in Summer Term.
Contact between individuals is limited by, where possible, ensuring pupils remain in consistent groups (‘bubbles’) and maintaining social distance between individuals.
The school office and building remain closed to visitors and parents.
We encourage you to contact the school office via telephone to book a meeting with teachers, send a message on ClassDojo or email the office for any queries.
Collection and Dismissal
In order to manage the dispersal of students at the end of the day, timings for dismissal are set out below. Please can all parents stay in their cars until 5 mins
before classroom doors open.
Early Years and Key Stage 1 children (Nursery to Year 2) to finish school at 3:00pm. Children in Key Stage 2 (Year 3 to Year 6) will finish at 3:15pm. To help the flow of the car park we are urging parents of KS2 children NOT to arrive before 3:05pm. If you have more than one child, we ask you to collect the younger one first and then wait outside the older child’s class until 3:15pm.
Please continue to follow the one-way system; children in Reception to Year 3 – use the KS1 entrance. Children in Year 4 to 6 use the KS2 gate. If you park at the back of the car park and your child is in the lower years – you must still use the one-way system. Please do not use the KS2 gate for a shorter route.
Further information for adults
Please try to walk to school and only use our car park if absolutely necessary. We need to avoid congestion. Only ONE parent allowed at drop off and pick up to reduce numbers of adults on-site. All adults must wear a face covering at all times on the school premises. In the morning, classroom doors open at 8.15am and close at 8.35am promptly. During pick up/drop off, please be prompt and leave the school grounds as quick as possible.
We want our families to be safe at all times. As the Designated Safeguarding Lead, if you are worried about a child or need someone to talk to, please contact me on 01753 823 501 during school hours.
