NEW SCHOOL YEAR INFORMATION
2020/21 New School Year
It was lovely to see our children return safely back to school on Monday 7th September.
Our staggered start and finish will remain for everyone for the foreseeable future.
This will ensure that we have limited amounts of parents/carers on the site at any one time.
For this system to work all children MUST be in school at their allocated time – not before
· 8.45 am – Years 5/6 Collection at 3.15 pm
· 8.50 am – Years 3 /4 Collection at 3.10 pm
· 9.00 am - Years 1 /2/ Reception Collection at 3.00 pm
· 9.00 am – Nursery collection at 12 pm
Drop off zones and collection zones are clearly labelled. Only one adult is permitted on site
with your child/children. There is a one-way system around school which is working extremely well – thank you for following the arrows when you drop your child off. To avoid compromising the flow if you have children in older year groups you will need to either re-walk the route or stay well back until your year group is called.
To keep everyone safe, the car park gates are closed between 8.45 am - 9.20 am, and
2.50 pm – 3.20pm. This ensures the safety of all whilst walking through the car park to the school exit. No cars/deliveries will be permitted onto the car park between these times except the school transport.
All our children are working within year group pods. This gives the flexibility of target
teaching and enables us to implement a catch up program. Each pod has its allocated
lunch time, break time and allocation of staff. Social distancing in school is encouraged wherever possible with staff wearing protective equipment when necessary.
Deep cleaning happens daily in school. We have an abundance of products so that all equipment, tables and chairs can be thoroughly cleansed.
Four Seasons Before and After School Provision
Four Seasons has now re-opened and is following the new Government legislation. The children are now in small pods within the school with allocated staff.
All children eat in their allocated pods/classrooms. Junior children in receipt of Free School Meals will receive a hot-bagged meal - choice is limited to a vegetarian meal or non-vegetarian. All other junior children WILL need to bring a packed lunch to school. All Infant children will receive their universal free school meal- hot-bagged meal- choice is limited to a vegetarian meal or non-vegetarian, unless they wish to bring a packed lunch.
