School Update - 11th June 2020
Dear parents and carers,
We are very pleased that the start back to school for some of our pupils has been very smooth, and we welcome some of our Year 1 children joining us today.
As we get used to the new way of working, we would like to remind families of the following arrangements:
- The expectation is that children attend school 5 days a week, and this includes Wednesday until lunchtime. We need to ensure this happens, wherever possible (and of course with the exception of illness or self-isolation), so that we are able to plan our staffing appropriately.
- There are some families who are coming in either early or late for their allotted time of arrival or exit which is meaning more pupils at reception or waiting around the school. As we welcome more pupils tomorrow and Monday and we become busier, we need to ensure this is eradicated wherever possible, so that groups are not compromised. Please make every effort to be on time for your allocated slot.
- Some children are still bringing in a large bag to school every day. As they are keeping these at their workstation, please help us to manage this risk effectively by reducing it down to a small bag, or even better, no bag if it is not needed.
- Lunch will be eaten at school on a Wednesday, for those who have ordered lunch from Chartwells, and those who have brought a packed lunch. If children have no lunch ordered or provided then we will assume parents will give their child lunch when they have returned home. Please do book lunches in the normal way.
Lastly, you may be aware that there was a ministerial statement given regarding schools and wider re-opening, yesterday in parliament. We have no further information or guidance regarding this, but please be assured that if and when schools are given this we will be in touch about future plans. We will review our risk assessments and decisions will be made in line with any Government guidelines to ensure safety is at the forefront of our plans. At this time, with the current limitations, it appears very unlikely we will be able to offer places for many more children to return.
We would like to offer our thanks for the support we have received from our school community, and hope everyone is staying safe and well.
