School Reopening 8th March

The government have announced that all primary aged children will be
returning to school on Monday 8th March. The staff very much looking forward to welcoming
you back.

The arrangements we had in place before Christmas will still stand.

Here is a reminder:

Drop Off Arrangements
• The school day starts at 8.45am and the school gates will be open from 8.30am and close at 9am.
• We ask parents to drop their child/ren off at the designated point and then leave the school site as soon as their child has entered school.
• Please do not stay and wait on the school grounds or the roads outside.
• We ask that parents continue to socially distance between each other and staff. Parent/carers will be asked to stay 1m apart if they are wearing a mask when outside or otherwise keep 2m apart . 

• Parents will not be able to enter the building.


Pick Up Arrangements
• There will be a staggered end to the day as we would normally do:
YR – 3.10pm
Y1&2 – 3.15pm
Y3-6 – 3.20pm
• Please collect your child/ren from the same drop off point.
• We ask that parents continue to socially distance between each other and staff. Parent/carers will be asked to stay 1m apart if they are wearing a mask when outside or otherwise keep 2m apart.

• Parents will not be able to enter the building.

 • We ask that you leave the school grounds as soon as you have collected your child.


Pick up/Drop off Points:
YR and 1 – Year one door (front playground by the main office)
Y2 – Y2 door (bottom of the front playground)
Y3 – middle door in KS2 playground (opposite the boulders)
Y4 – Car park entrance at the front of school
Y5 – Y5 door via the bottom car park (usual KS2 entrance)
Y6 – Year 6 door in the KS2 playground (opposite the football cage)

We understand there will be times when you need to speak to a teacher or member of staff.
We ask that you phone the school office or email the teacher with your message. All staff emails are on
the school website. You can make an appointment to see any member of staff face to face by phoning or
emailing the school office. If you are entering the school for a meeting, you will need to follow the safety
protocols we have in place including sanitising hands and keeping a 2m distance from staff.

In The Classroom
• Children will sit in rows, facing forward 
• Children will have their own stationery
• Children will be given a designated seat
• They won’t mix with other bubbles (apart from if they attend breakfast and after school club)

  • Reception classes will sit on the carpet and be able to move between table activities.
  • Free flow will be limited to 15 children outside for each class. This is because the outside learning area is split into 3, one for each class. Our bubble system could not be maintained safely if all the YR children were outside at the same time.


In the playground
• Year Groups will stay in their designated playzone
• They will have their own play equipment for their class bubble
• Play times and lunch times will have staggered starts

Lunch time
• Children will eat in the hall with their class bubble
• Lunch times will have a staggered start
• Chartwells will provide hot meals from the beginning of term.
• Children can bring a water bottle and packed lunch box which can come to and from school every day.


Our usual uniform policy will be in place and we will expect all children to come to school wearing uniform. We understand that children will have grown out of things since they last wore them and will be understanding while families get organised with new uniform. We do have a second hand uniform shop. Please ask the office for details.


It is expected that all children return to school on Monday 8th March with the possible exception of
children who are clinically extremely vulnerable.
