Changes to align with living with Covid guidance for schools
 

We are presently reviewing some of the changes that the school have made in response to covid over the last two years.  

 

Morning drop-offs 

I know many parents prefer the car drop off  to the park and walk system that was previously in place.  In order for the car drop-off to continue we will need some parent helpers to open car doors.

  If you can commit to a weekly slot opening car doors between 8.30 and 8.45 am please let the school office know as soon as possible. 

We will continue with Friday morning open classrooms for parents.  On other days of the week if you walk your child into the school grounds please drop-off outside the classroom.  

 

 Class Email

We introduced an email address for each class as part of our covid response.  Those email addresses will continue to be used to communicate messages between school and home.  The classroom teams are not always able to read or respond to emails on the same day that they are sent.  The class email address should only be used for non-urgent email.  All information that is urgent (including changes to end of day pick ups) should be emailed directly to the school office. 

 

End and finish of the school day.

The school day begins at 8:30 am and finishes at 3:20pm. 

Children who arrive after 8:50am are marked late.  If you are dropping your child off at school after 8:50 am please park your car and enter the school gate, your child can go directly to class. The late sign in book will be at the front of the school (the porch), please sign your child in with the reason they are late.

 

Remote learning

The teachers will continue to use the class Teams for homework, the term outline and updates of the things that have been happening in school.  We will not be providing remote learning under the "living with covid" guidance.  It is anticipated that going forward if children are unable to attend school it is because they are unwell.  If circumstances arrive and a child needs to isolate but is well, please contact the school office and the Headteacher will coordinate remote learning.

 

Should parents send their child to school if they think they have COVID-19?

If a child has any of the main symptoms or a positive test result, the public health advice remains unchanged and is to stay at home and avoid contact with other people.

Anyone with any of the main COVID-19 symptoms should order a test and is advised to stay at home while waiting for the result.

If they test positive, they are advised to follow public health advice
