Information for Families: Return to School

I hope you have had a good summer and are looking forward to the return to school this week.

We have been working closely with the Local Authority, Public Health and Unions to implement changes for the new term. We are aiming to take a sensible approach which moves us towards a more ‘normal’ school day, whilst ensuring we hold onto key actions that will help us minimize the spread of any infection.

We have needed to wait as long as possible to ensure any new guidance is included, after the last 18 months we have become expert at understanding the ‘last minute’ nature of reviewed guidance from the DfE. We have produced a helpful parent handbook which we hope will help to clarify many of the daily routines and procedures – see handbook here: Sept 22 Handbook for Parents

We are desperately keen to get families back onto the site, but need to do this in a measured way, so please try to limit your contacts with other adults, keep your distance and leave promptly once you have dropped or collected your children. We currently have scaffolding on site on the KS2 block which is further restricting access so if you have a child in KS2, please bring them into the playground and wait with them there from 8.50am. Staff will be around in the playground to help them get use to walking to their classroom when the bell goes. At the end of the day KS2 classes will be escorted out to the main playground where they will be collected by you.

Please wait in the playground for KS2 children, not at the classroom door.

I would like to thank you in advance for your continued support, you have all been amazing throughout this time.

We look forward to seeing you on Friday – 9am for all KS2 classes and 9.15am for KS1.
