Information for September 2020


16 July 2020

Dear Parents and Carers,

Well here we are at the end of what has been the strangest school year for us all! Thank you for all your support during the year and especially throughout the lockdown period. We are spending this week saying “good bye” to all of our Year 6 children as they move up to their secondary schools; we wish them all the very best for their exciting new adventures.

We are looking forward to seeing all of the children back in school in September and are busy making plans following Government guidelines so that everyone can keep safe going forward. All of our plans are subject to the Trust checking and agreeing them. Also there are further Government guidelines due out during August but we do not anticipate that we will have to change any details very much.

Please see below all of the information that you need for September including the start and end times for each group of children and which entrances and exits they will need to use as we must stagger all of these to reduce the number of people arriving and leaving together. The photos should help you to see which entrances and exits to use. We will keep all of these arrangements under review in September and make any changes as necessary.

We cannot have any bikes or scooters staying on site during the day at the moment. If your child rides one to school then please take it home with you Children should not bring any pens, pencils etc from home as we will provide an individual set for each child to use. All Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children will continue to receive a free school lunch. Children in Y3 – Y6 who are eligible, will also receive a free school meal. For everyone else in Y3 – Y6 they will have the choice of bringing in a packed lunch or purchasing a meal from school. The new menu will be on our website very soon under the “News” section. School meals will be £2.30 from September. Under Covid 19 regulations children should not bring anything into school from home that is not absolutely necessary please including bags. Class teachers will let children know in September what the arrangements are for PE kits in school; they will only need outdoor kit to start with. We will also let you know about reading books.

A reminder that we will see all children in Y1 – Y6 back on Monday 7th September and Reception children full time from Wednesday 9th September.

We hope you have a safe and enjoyable holiday and look forward to a slightly more normal year next year!

Kindest regards

Diane Hawkes

Headteacher
