Return to School in September
Please ensure you have read the latest newsetter that outlines our approach. Newsletter available HERE.
To make our school as COVID secure as possible, we are operating 6 gates, three start times and two end times. The staggering is essential.
Some children to arrive between 8.45 to 8.55am, others 9.00 to 9.10am (see chart below for your child). Gates will close between 8.55 to 9.00 to distinguish between the different entrance times of groups. There is no need to queue outside the school if you time your arrival to happen during you allocated 10 minutes. But please note that if you are late you cannot go in with the next cohort, you will have to wait for all nursery and reception children to have gone through Gate A2 and then go to the front entrance - Do Not Use Any Other Gates.
Below are the groups, the classes and the subsets. We have deliberately put children in subsets according to family groups so as to minimise the potential for whole school shut down if there is a local outbreak. This may mean children will be working with other children in the year group different from their previous class. We are prioritising public health Pupil groups/classes will not be changed.
You will be sent a text today informing you of your childs NEW subset for September. Note subsets A, B and E are together and C, D and F are together (yes the lettering is correct!)
Signs will be up showing which Gate, for which class, at which time.
Parents will not be allowed onto the main playground in the morning and must be prompt both drop off and pick up to prevent bubble mixing.
