 Other important points:

  1. Please send your child to school with a named water bottle and a fruit snack in a plastic box;
  1. Windows will be open during the day so it is advisable for all children to wear an extra layer or two of clothing. These can be removed if they get hot. Please name all clothing that comes into school;
  1. We will take opportunities for outdoor learning so please provide your child with a winter coat and sensible shoes.
  1. Breakfast Club will be open for all pupils in Reception- Year 2 and the other children in school. If your child is in Miss Hawes, Miss Evans, Mr Fitchett or Mr Bridgman’s class Breakfast Club will be in the infant hall from 8.15am. Last entry is 8.30am. If your child is in Year 2 in Miss Morgan’s class OR in the Keyworkers/Vulnerable Learners provision Breakfast Club will be in the Junior building opening at 8.15am. Last entry 8.30am.

 Provision for the Children of Keyworkers/Vulnerable learners

This will continue after half term in the JUNIOR building. Please drop your child at 8.15am if they want to come to Breakfast Club or 9.00am if not. They will need to be collected from the main Junior door at 3.30pm. Numbers are very limited so please only request this provision if you have no other option.

Other information: 

  • Please wear a face covering on the school site.
  • If you are exempt from wearing a face covering please contact us to let us know. We may need to ask for medical evidence from a medical professional. I would ask all parents to be sympathetic to anyone not wearing a face covering- they may have a medical reason for this which the school are aware of.
  • Please do not congregate on the school playground. Use the one way systems in place and keep a 2 metre distance when dropping off/collecting your child.
  • If you drop children in Miss Evans, Miss Hawes and Mr Bridgman’s classes, please leave via the back entrance unless you have mobility issues/buggies. In this case, please walk up the DRIVE not the path until you get to the zebra crossing where you can leave via the path around the bus bay. Parents dropping children at nursery and Mr Fitchett’s classes can also leave via the driveway/bus bay.
  • Please keep to the timings for entry to/exit from school. The staggered entry is only useful if pupils do not arrive early or late for school.
  • Please do not send your child to school if they have any possible symptoms of Coronavirus or if any member of the household is symptomatic or waiting for a test result. 
  • If your child is ill, please let the school know. We have to report on all absences at the moment. You can message through Schoop, use the Covid email address if the absence is Covid related or phone the school office
  • An updated risk assessment has been put on the school website.

Take care and stay safe,

 Mrs Woodford
