Information about Daily Routines

All children of school age should return to school on the 8th September. That is children in reception through to year 6. If they are not returning you should let the school office know.

If your child is in nursery 2s Mrs Hannard will contact you to let you know your start date. This contact will be made next week with yourselves.

If your child is in the 3s you should have a start date.

Any child returning from a holiday in a foreign holiday that needs to isolate for 14 days should not return to school until the isolation period is over. This is very important that they do not return to keep everyone safe. Please inform the office if this is the case. I do know some parents have already done this.

All children will be kept in their own year groups where possible. They will be with their year groups throughout the day and will be separated at playtimes and lunchtimes from other year groups. They will wash their hands each time they enter and exit the classrooms. There will be no assemblies or school gatherings of more than one year group. They will follow the systems in place around the school once they have been shown them.

Communication will be via telephone, email, parent mail and social media. There will be no face to face meetings unless prior arrangements have been made.

Please ensure we have up to date contact information for each child you have in school.

Please can we ask that you respect social distancing at drop off and pick up time. Staff will be on the gates to receive and pass over children. Once you have let your child go into school or have picked them up please move away from the gate area so that transition times can run smoothly.

If your child is in year 5 or 6 please send an email or letter so we know you give permission for them to walk home by themselves.

Children have their own resource packs in classes. They are working in books from year 1 to 6 which do not leave the classrooms. The teachers will mark the books in the classrooms and they will not leave the rooms. Any resources that leave the classrooms will be sanitised. Resources within each class do not have to be sanitised unless they leave the rooms such as exercise books, dictionaries.

Shared PE equipment will be sanitised between year groups using it. Any playtime equipment will be given to class year groups for their own use.

Masks do not need to be worn by children or staff but some staff may choose to wear them to protect themselves in certain circumstances.

Hand washing and sanitisation stations will be shown to the children on the 8th September or when children return to school.

KS 1 classes will change in their classrooms for PE as they normally do. KS 2 children will use the changing rooms accessing them using the shown route. PE kits stored in boxes in classrooms for KS 1 and hall for KS 2. They need plimsolls or trainers which can be used outdoors.

If your child becomes ill they will be taken to the First Aid room and we will contact you to come and pick them up if we feel this is necessary. We will not be taking temperatures unless children become unwell. We will contact you and ask you come to collect your child as soon as possible. Please do not send children into school who are presenting with any symptoms of Covid 19.

The well-being of all our pupils is extremely important to us and we will be working with them to ensure any anxieties are addressed.

A full copy of our Risk Assessment will be sent out on Monday via parent mail.

Packed Lunches can be sent into school and will be stored sensibly. Please wipe the bags over each morning and night when they come home so they are kept clean.

Water bottles can be sent into school but must remain on the children’s desks and again washed and cleaned thoroughly each morning and night before they come into school. No other belongings must be sent into school unless a member of staff has requested them. Information will be sent out about homework and reading books once the term commences.

If a mobile phone is required as a safety measure for the journey to and from school it must be handed to the class teacher as soon as your child comes into school, there are safeguarding reasons for this.

We understand that some parents have multiple pick up gates. We will not let your child go unless we have permission to do so.

These systems will be under constant review and we will keep you updated of any changes. Once we have the systems live with yourselves and the children involved we may have to change some things.

Thank you and we are looking forward to seeing you on Tuesday 8th September or nursery parents and children on the date we have arranged for you.
