Coming back to school

We have put together some information that will help you understand the adaptations we have put in place in preparation for the return of all pupils during the Covid - 19 crisis. 

The safety and wellbeing of children, staff, parents and carers is our utmost priority and we have a clear action plan, measured against risk assessments, in place.  Things will be a bit different. We will be working tirelessly to make sure that your child’s wellbeing and involvement remains high and their enjoyment of school and all it has to offer continues to grow.

Coming into school

From September, you can access the site from both Highfield and Church Road to drop off and pick up your child/children. There will be members of staff on hand to support you in the morning and afternoon. We ask that you remain two meters apart at all times whilst on site.

Playtime

Our playtimes will be staggered.  Not all the children will be on the playground at the same time.  The children will access break times in their class ‘bubbles’ with their key adults.  We have carefully considered activities that children can enjoy with their adult whilst ensuring social distancing.  Below are some examples of these activities:  

 

Classrooms

The classrooms will look a little different. Here are some photos:

We have staggered the start and finish times for the school day to support social distancing.  

We will mark spots where you can wait safely for your teachers in the playground or in the designated waiting areas. These will be bright yellow sunshines marked on the ground. They will support the two metre distancing needed to safely drop off and pick up your child.

Travelling to and from school

Wherever possible, we ask that you walk to school.
