School Reopening Information
Full Return to School
As of 3rd September 2020, the full return to primary schools will begin for all pupils. Following Government Guidance and Rigorous Risk Assessments the school will be open for all staff and children. The reopening will be as follows:
- September 1st 2020 - Staff Inset Day & Classroom preparations
- September 2nd 2020 - Staff Inset Day & Classroom preparations
- September 3rd 2020 - Children in Viridis & Years 1 - 6 return to school
Children who are in EYFS (Nursery & Reception) will have a phased return to school between 7th & 14th September.
Children are expected to arrive at school no later than 8:45am and are to be picked up at 3:15pm prompt.
On arrival, all pupils are required to enter on their own as parents drop them off in the care of staff at the gates, allowing the one way in system to flow freely. Children will have their temperature checked and hands sanitised as they make their way directed by the staff in charge at the gates, straight into their classrooms for EYFS and KS1. This will take place with pupils and parents adhering to the social distancing rules as much as is practicable.
Parents are asked NOT TO ASSEMBLE by the gates or enter the school grounds in the mornings or after school. All are asked to leave immediately after drop offs while continuing to adhere to social distancing measures to ensure the process is efficient & effective.
Based on our current risk assessments there will be NO AFTER SCHOOL CLUBS until further notice to allow for thorough cleaning to be done across the school in preparation for the next day.
