Dear Parents / Carers,
We are looking forward to seeing all of the children tomorrow and wanted to remind you of how we are keeping children safe during this period. There is a governmental expectation for all pupils to attend school from September.
Drop off and pick up
So we don’t have families waiting on the playground for doors for different year groups to open, we will be having a longer drop off and pick up time.
There is a one way system in operation for Year 1 – 6. Please walk your child around the back of the community centre and stay in your household bubbles.
Please use the yellow lines to distance yourselves. You can drop off your children at the classroom door anytime between 8:30 and 8:50.
You can pick your children up anytime between 3pm and 3:20pm. There will be staggered breaktimes and lunchtimes.
Parents will not be allowed to come into the school building, so if you need to speak to a teacher call the office on 01623 489980 or email the office email@example.com
School bags and uniform
Lunchboxes can be brought into school and we request all children have their own water bottle.
PE kits should arrive on Monday and be taken home on Friday to be washed each week.
As Year 5 and Year 6 normally get changed separately, pupils will need to come to school in PE kits on the days when they will be doing PE (specific class days will be confirmed on the Year 5/6 welcome letter).
No stationary / pencil cases or personal belongings need to be brought in as everything they need will be provided.
Uniform needs to be worn everyday.
Breaktimes and lunchtimes
Breaktimes and lunchtimes will be staggered with different groups of children occupying different parts of the playground.
Packed lunches and school dinners will be delivered by the kitchen staff and eaten in the classrooms.
We request that if medicines can be administered by parents at home they should be during this period. This will stop the need for unnecessary movement around the school building. Most prescribed medicines can be accommodated before and after school, so we request that this is adhered to where possible.
Inhalers and Epi-pens should come into school as usual and we will ensure that children can access them whenever they are required. Please ensure that any medication is in date.
Mrs Thompson has done a wonderful job of being the link between school and home for so many families. Unfortunately, Mrs Thompson was diagnosed with breast cancer at the start of lockdown and has now had surgery. She will need treatment for a few months, so she won’t available. She is as well as she can be and it will be no surprise to any of us that she is already itching to come back and see everyone. I am sure that you will join me in wishing her a speedy recovery.
