I hope you and your families are all well.
This is just a short note to say that we are really looking forward to welcoming your child back to school tomorrow. Remember that school day begins at 8.30am* for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 and 8.45am* for Years 3,4,5 and 6. Children should not arrive earlier than 5 minutes before the bell unless they are a child arriving with a younger sibling.
* Please ensure your child is ready to enter the classroom at the designated time
A reminder also, that any messages for the class teacher should be communicated via email which eases congestion and maximises learning time.
Children should be collected at 3.00pm (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2) and at 3.15pm (Years 3-6). Again, please do not arrive earlier than 5 minutes before the bell to ease congestion and support the smooth running of the school day.
Even though many COVID restrictions have now been lifted, we are continuing with hand-sanitising, routine hand washing, additional cleaning and avoiding face-to-face meetings with external visitors. We will then review our procedures towards the end of this first term. Some of the procedures with regards to COVID and isolation have changed:
- If someone develops symptoms or tests positive, they must continue to isolate. Close contacts and household members do NOT have to isolate if they have been double vaccinated OR are under 18 years and 6months of age. Close contacts are instead requested to take a PCR test.
- If you as a parent/carer test positive for COVID-19, guidance states that following a negative PCR result, your child may still attend school. Please inform the school office via email/telephone who will be dropping off and collecting your child.
Of course, if the situation changes, and tighter measures need to be put in place, then we will inform you as necessary.
For those people who have tried out the TUTOR maths programme, I would really appreciate if you could email the office in the next week or so with any feedback regarding how useful/beneficial it has been for you and/or your child.
