If we have a confirmed case of coronavirus in school we will most likely have to send all the children in that class 'bubble' home to isolate for 14 days to stop the spread of infection.
We are ready to go with remote learning if we need it. Teachers will also be isolating, so will be at home, online to support the children.
If you need a device to allow them access to Google Classroom, please contact the school for support.
We are really looking forward to welcoming back all the children next Thursday (3rd September)
A few reminders:
* Years 1, 2, 4, 5 start at 8.45am and finish at 3pm
* Years 3, 6 start at 9am and finish at 3.15pm
* Foundation will have a transition period of half days and you will have received a letter letting you know whether your child comes mornings or afternoons.
* Years 1, 3, 4, 6 will enter through their classroom fire doors.
* Year 2 and 5 will use the cloakroom entrances.
* Small book bags only, please as they need to keep all their belongings in the classrooms.
* Children will come to school in their PE kit on the days they have PE to avoid needing to change in school.
* Early Bird and After School Clubs will operate as usual from 8am until 5pm. Breakfast will be available too.
* Children will not be wearing face coverings in school.
Parents, please keep social distancing rules in the playground when you are dropping off and collecting children.
The children will need to follow any new procedures during the day.
We have been working hard to make sure that school will look and feel as normal as possible. Please help us by reassuring your child about coming back to school.
We can't wait to see you all again.
Statement on re-opening of schools - September 2020
We will be opening the school fully from 3rd September 2020.
We have been open for some children all the way through the Covid-19 lockdown and feel confident that the hygiene measures we have in place have worked to keep us all safe.
We have updated a risk assessment to take into account more children in the building in September - see below.
It is essential that children are able to follow the systems and routines around school to reduce the risks for everyone. The appendix to the Behaviour Policy outlines our expectations around this.
Please have a look at the resource below to support your child's return.

Stay home, stay safe!!
We are proud to be open for children of Key Workers who need to be available to provide necessary services at this difficult time.
We have sent home learning packs for all those children who should not be attending. Be kind to your children...and yourselves...you should not worry if there are things they cannot do. I know you will all do your best. Take turns reading (yes, you can read to them too!), draw, colour in, do a puzzle together, play and get plenty of exercise. Try to enjoy spending this time together. Your children will not learn much if they are too stressed and you are too. Build some amazing memories together to make this as positive a time as possible.
Parents of children who are eligible for free school meals are able to contact school and arrange to collect food supplies to help them provide for the children at home.
There is support available to keep your child safe online. Below are some useful links to help parents and carers:
