September 2020: Welcome Back To School!

4th September 2020


Dear Parents,

School opens on Monday 7th September. We really look forward to seeing all pupils as they return to school and greeting our new pupils in Reception and Nursery.

The arrangements below are made to keep children safe in school. They are informed by the latest Government guidance and will be in place for as long as is needed for our school to comply with the requirements. It is possible that if the guidance changes, so will our arrangements.

All children will be taught in their own classes, of normal size. At all times they will remain in ‘bubbles’ of their own year group. Children from each year group bubble will be prevented from mixing with other year groups. School staff (including visiting staff such as the Speech and Language therapist) may work across any class or year group, though we will endeavor to limit this as much as possible.

Start and finish times

Year groups will start and end at staggered times to reduce the flow of adults around the site. Please ensure that just one adult delivers and collects your child on their own (apart from very young children still in pushchairs).

If there are families with one or more sibling attending the school, then parents will be able to drop off their children at the earlier time and collect at the later time. These children should go straight to their own classroom. This means you won’t have to make unnecessary journeys or wait around for classes to finish.

It is essential that all parents keep to their times and are punctual – we need to minimize the number of people on the playgrounds at any one time and the flow of parents and children through the gates. Please leave the school site promptly as soon as your children have been delivered or collected.

If waiting on the playground please use the main open areas and spread out as much as possible. Please do not gather together or come within 2 metres of the classroom door.

The office will remain closed to all parents and visitors unless you have an appointment.

There will be no toilet facilities for visitors and parents will not be able to enter the classrooms or school buildings at any time.

Children will not be able to bring any items from home apart from a refillable water bottle and their packed lunch if they have one. Single use plastic water bottles will not be allowed.

Breakfast and After School Club will run as planned from September. If you still need to apply for a place then please email to request a booking form and return your completed form to the same email address.


During the school day

Lunches will be served as normal with tables and chairs cleaned between each use.

There is no expectation that children need to socially distance within their bubbles.

Staff will remind children to wash their hands thoroughly throughout the day.

Commonly used items of equipment – pencils rulers etc will not be shared – each child will be provided with their own.

No soft toys or difficult to wash equipment will be used. All other toys or equipment will be washed after use.

Staff members will maintain social distancing guidelines whenever possible.

Staff will not work closely alongside individual pupils for more than 15mins.

Movement around the school will be using outside routes whenever possible. Staggered break times and lunches should mean that, for the majority of the time, only a small number of pupils are moving around the school at any time.

Each group will have their own set of playground equipment.

When assemblies take place, they will be with one year-group at a time – so will any after school clubs.

We will deliver a short PE session every day – this means children may not have time to change into their full PE kit – but they should have shoes appropriate for PE in school every day

The outside climbing equipment areas will be used on a daily rota basis – children must not use these at the start or end of the day.


Best wishes


M Hanks
