Opening Times

Start and end times of the day have been staggered in order to reduce general traffic around school at any given time. This was effective during the partial re-opening of school. This is to keep everyone safe and we politely request that parents who bring children from different age ranges support us in keeping times separate.  The small playground can be used to wait between drop off/collection times if necessary. Times were shared in correspondence prior to the summer but as a reminder start/end times are as follows;

 

Reception

8.45

3.15

Years 1,2,3

9.00

3.30

Years 4, 5,6

9.15

3.45

  • Nursery remains as 8.45-11.45

 

In order for this to work successfully please be on time, not too early and not too late so we can have a steady flow of children into the school building and no gathering of people to compromise social distancing. We request that only one parent accompanies their child onto school premises.

There is a one way system to the rear of the school which is signposted. There is a one way system from the front of the school in and out of the playground which is signposted.

 

Access to the nursery and main entrance are clearly set out and is a two way system. Children will usually come straight into school via the entrances previously shared (see below for a reminder) but staff will be by entrances to direct children. Years 1-6 will be collected from the main playground at their allocated times to go home.  Class collection points are labelled, please queue using the social distance markers (yellow donuts!) and your child will be handed over when you reach the front of the queue.  Reception children will be collected where they are dropped off.

Masks

The guidance set out by the government states that children do not currently require masks in school. We appreciate that some children may wear masks on the way to school, especially if travelling on public transport. Please ensure that children are able to remove their mask safely upon arrival to school and have a place to store the mask e.g. coat pocket or bag. Staff are unable to help children with masks. You may wish to take their mask home with you. In order to protect our community, we request that all adults visiting school site wear a mask.
