Full reopening 8th March

Information for parents – wider opening 8th March

We look forward to having everyone back into school and are looking forward to a time when we can return to normality.  In the meantime however restrictions must remain in place.  We will be running the school day in much the same way as the autumn term.  Children will continue to have their lunch in the classroom; they will continue to be provided with their own set of resources in class and will continue to come to school in PE kit on PE days.  PE days will remain the same. Uniform should be worn on all other days.

The staggered times have been shortened, entrances have been reconfigured to keep the flow of children constant and the number of classes being dismissed from the playground, at any one time, kept to the minimum. Children no longer have to line up at the start of the day and may walk straight into school via their allocated entrance at their allocated time. Please avoid bringing children before their allocated time as this will disrupt the system.  Siblings may arrive and be collected at the eldest siblings time (please inform class teachers). In the event that siblings are collected together at the eldest child’s time please always collect any Reception children first before collecting other children from the playground. It was distressing for some Reception children last term to watch parents walk past and disappear into the playground without having collected them.

Before and after school club will recommence on TUESDAY 9th March please contact the school office to book your child’s place for the first week no later than Monday 8th March. Future bookings should be made by the Friday prior to the week being requested; For example for bookings for the week beginning the 15th March bookings should be made and paid for by Friday 12th March.  Please note that we are not able to cater for children who are not already registered with the club.  We are also not able to cater for children where parents/carers owe more than 2 weeks fees.  If you currently owe fees please ensure that these are cleared before booking a place.

 

Lunch requests will be taken by the class teacher each morning upon return to school.  Universal free school meals will recommence for KS1 and Early years.  Please ensure that all monies to be paid are paid no later than the Monday of the week in which your child will be taking a school lunch.

 

Finally the rules still apply with regards to face coverings for adults visiting site.  Please do not send children into school if they are ill or parents/ carers are ill and ALWAYS get a co-vid test where symptoms are displayed and await results BEFORE sending children in to school.  In the event that your child displays symptoms in school you will be contacted immediately to collect your child and they will wait for you in a room separate to their class.

 

Now more than ever our core Christian value of Hope is key.  We look forward to a future filled with normality.  What could be better than that!
