If you do need to leave home for any of the above reasons, remember ‘Hands. Face. Space’:
- hands – wash your hands regularly and for 20 seconds
- face – wear a face covering in indoor settings where social distancing may be difficult, and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet
- space – stay 2 metres apart from people you do not live with where possible, or 1 metre with extra precautions in place (such as wearing face coverings or increasing ventilation indoors)
We are operating staggered start and end times from September 2020:
Children will arrive and leave at staggered intervals. For this to work effectively, we must ask that you arrive as close to your child’s time as possible, not in advance or late.
Reception Class: arrive 8:45am; leave 3:15 Reception door
Year 1: arrive 9am; leave 3:30 Year 1/2 door at main playground
Year 2: arrive 8:30; leave 3pm Year 1/2 door at main playground
Year 3: arrive 8:30; leave 3pm Main entrance using the steps
Year 4: arrive 9am, leave 3:30 Main entrance using the steps
Year 5: arrive 8:45, leave 3:15 Car park entrance
Year 6: arrive 9am, leave 3:30 Car park entrance
If you have more than one child in school and their start and end times differ, you will be able to drop both/all children off at the time your earliest child has to be in school and then collect them at the latest time your children should be collected.
PLEASE NOTE, to keep separation of bubbles/zones in school, siblings need to be dropped off at their own correct door.
If you feel your child is old enough to walk from the gate to their door without you in the morning, then please allow them to do this. At the end of the day, you will need to be at your child’s entrance keeping a 2-metre distance from anyone else collecting.
Only one adult may enter the site to drop off or collect a child from each family.
