As part of the school's commitment to keeping every member of the school community as safe as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic, a whole school risk assessment is carried out regularly and this is placed on the school website for transparency. Although vaccinations have been taking place at a faster rate and all adults within the school community can access twice weekly lateral flow tests, there is still a risk that infections may occur leading to the closure of bubble within school. It is therefore expected that all families will adhere to these measures until guidance is changed.
We hope that this information will alleviate the concerns that you may have.
Pupils must wear school uniform apart from on the day of their PE lesson, when they may attend wearing PE kit. The Uniform Policy under Key Information on the website should also answer any questions you may have.
Details of the staggered start and finish times were sent to all parents and carers of all pupils via ParentMail. Unfortunately, pupils will not be able to be dropped or collected early so please adhere to the times that have been given - this will support social distancing between adults on site, as does the one-way system around the school site. If pupils are late arriving or being collected, classroom doors will remain open until 10am in the mornings and close at 4pm - siblings must be collected from their own classrooms using the one-way route around the school.
At this time, parents and carers will not be able to enter the school unless by prior arrangement to minimise the risk to all. Please email or telephone school with any queries or information that you wish to give - we will then arrange to speak with you should that be needed. We would thank all parents and carers for following all the procedures which are in place to help to keep all members of the school community as safe as possible.
We love school!
