Return to School on March 8th 2020

Email to Parents,

We are so looking forward to welcoming everyone back to school on Monday 8th March. Please make sure you read through the following points as a reminder of our continued measures to minimise risk of Covid transmission and updated Government guidance:

  • Please stagger your start and finish according to surname:

 

Drop Off

Pick up

Surnames A – E

8:30 – 8:40

3:00 – 3:10

Surnames F – M

8:40 – 8:50

3:10 – 3:20

Surnames x – X

8:50 – 9:00

3:20 – 3:30

  • Please drop off / pick up at nursery at 8:30am and 3:30pm (pick up 11:30 if only attending mornings and drop off at 12:30 if only attending afternoons)
  • Please do not arrive on school site before your time slot, walking on the left hand side of the driveway and socially distancing from other family groups. The route around the outside of school at pick up time is still in place.
  • Adults must wear a face covering at all times on the school site. Children are not required to wear a face covering in school but may choose to wear one if they prefer.
  • The Lewis road gate will remain closed to support our one way system.
  • PLEASE NOTE: during construction works on Vicarage Road, there may be some restricted access to walkways. Please be patient and use the opposite side of the road where necessary to maintain social distancing.
  • Attendance at school is mandatory from Monday 8th March and our usual absence and late reporting procedures will be followed. You MUST inform the school reasons for non-attendance.

 

  • Please do not come to school if your child or a member of your household or childcare / support bubble displays Covid symptoms. These include a temperature, new continuous cough and loss of taste or smell. New guidance suggests that sickness and diarrhoea should also be included in the list of symptoms. The person with symptoms should get a test – bookable by calling 119. If this test is negative, your child may return to school.  If positive, all members of the household must self-isolate for 10 days after the date symptoms started or the date of the test is asymptomatic. Please keep the school informed of symptoms and test results.

 

  • Please bring all books, resources and pencil cases to school on Monday. Please also return any technology that school have provided to your child’s class teacher on Monday.

 

  • Please wear school uniform as much as you can – including dark shoes. On PE days, please come to school in school PE kit. We appreciate that some children may have grown out of school uniform and new uniform is difficult to get. Please speak to our pastoral team who may be able to help you if this is particularly difficult.  

 

  • Don’t forget to order your school lunches through ParentPay. This can be ordered up to Easter.

 

  • Families of school age children are eligible to get packs of Lateral Flow Tests to do home tests. This is NOT mandatory before your child comes back to school but if you would like to get some follow this link
