Changes to school times:

Year 6, Year 5, Year 4 and Year 3 will all now start school at 08:45 and finish at 15:10.
Year 2, Year 1 and Reception will start school at 08:55 and finish at 15:20.
Nursery sessions will be 08:55 – 11:55 and 12:30 – 15:30
Mini Models’ sessions will be 09:00 – 12:00 and 12:30 – 15:30

It is very important for everyone to adhere to these timings so that we can keep our ‘bubble’ groups separate.

Dropping Off and Collecting Children.

Parents of children in Years 1 to Year 6 must say goodbye to their child at the school gate where they will be greeted and directed by staff. Please follow social distancing outside of the school gate - lines have been painted onto the pathway to assist.

Timing is critical to avoid children ‘crossing bubbles’. Please be punctual to help the smooth running of the start and end of day.

Year 1,2, 5 and 6 should be dropped off at the West Gate (the main playground gate) on arrival.

Year 3 and 4 should be dropped off at the East Gate (the gate near the Mini-Models building).

For children in Reception, one parent will be allowed to walk their child through the East Gate into the Reception class outside area where they will be greeted.

For children in Nursery, one parent will be allowed to walk their child through the East Gate, along the pathway and around to the Nursery.

For children attending Mini-Models, one parent will be allowed to bring their child into the unit for their first visit.

At all times, we ask all adults to be socially distancing.

Children in Y1, Y2, Y5 and Y6 will wait on the playground and be called to meet their parent at the West Gate at the end of the day.

Children in Y3 and Y4 will wait near to the East Gate and be called to meet their parent at the East Gate at the end of the day.

When parents have informed us their child/ren can walk home without an adult, they will leave at their allotted time.

Children in Reception, Nursery and Mini-Models will be collected from their outdoor area by one parent - we request waiting parents apply social distancing.

Uniform

All children from Reception to Year 6 are expected to wear school uniform.
On days when children have PE lessons, children do not need to wear school uniform: we ask children to come to school dressed in outdoor PE kit ie: jogging bottoms, trainers, warm top. Class teachers will inform you on which days PE will be taught.

New sweatshirts and cardigans are now in stock and available for purchase from Monday 7th September.

Cardigan £9
Sweatshirt £8.50
T-Shirts £4

Face Masks

Following the government medical advice, children do not need to wear face masks at school. We will provide small plastic bags for children to put face masks into if they arrive with them.

Attendance

School attendance is compulsory again from the start of September.

Every day of school is a learning day and good attendance (96%or higher) really does give your child the best chance to learn well.

School Meals

School meal prices have now increased to £2.20 per day.

Please remember, any money brought into school must be in a named and sealed envelope. We hoped to start using ParentPay this month but we have now been told this will be delayed.

Packed Lunches

We ask for all children who bring packed lunches to school must do so in a disposable bag. When children have finished their lunch, all waste is then thrown away.



Thank you for taking time to read this information. If you have further questions, please ask us and we will endeavour to respond as soon as possible. Sometimes we have lots of questions and we will respond via the school story or class story, instead of individually.
