It has been so lovely to welcome the children back to school today. There were a range of emotions but once children got into the classrooms they are now settled and happy to be with their friends and new teachers!
Just a few things regarding pick up and drop offs…can we please ask you to stick to your allocated times and only one adult to accompany children – we will be reviewing this as soon as we can. If you need a little reminder, the times are as follows:
Nursery - normal times - bottom gate
Reception (classes 1 + 2) - 8.50 - 3.20 - bottom gate
Year 1 + 2 (classes 3, 4, 6 + 7) 9.00 - 3.15 - top or back gate
Year 3 + 4 (classes 10, 11, 12 + 13) 9.05 - 3.10 - bottom gate
Year 5 + 6 (classes 12, 13, 14 + 15) - any gate
So that we don't have lots of people on the playground, can we please ask that children in KS2 (from year 3 upwards) get dropped off at the gate and walk into school on their own. There will be members of staff on the playground in key areas. We understand that there may be a small number of children where this is not possible and in these few cases we understand that one adult may accompany them.
Thank you for working together with us. We must make sure our school is as safe as possible and we appreciate your support as parents /carers in doing your part to make this possible. Please make sure that when on the playground either dropping off or collecting, that you maintain social distancing guidelines and move off the school grounds as soon as possible. There may be times where you wish to speak to your child's class teacher - please can we ask that you do this over the phone wherever possible.
