Important information for Week 2

Dear Parents and Carers,

Thank you so much for your patience and cooperation this week, because of your support our systems are running smoothly and we have had a very positive start to the school year. Each day we have been tweaking our procedures to improve further. We now feel that we can improve the drop off by changing to the following times from Monday 14th September;

8.40am Siblings

8.45am Year 3, 4, 5, and 6

8.50am Year 1 and 2

This should speed things up and ensure all children are in class by 9am. For the time being we will stick to the pick-up times and procedures but will review these each week. Many thanks to the Year 2 and Year 3 parents and carers for sticking to the 3.25pm time as this greatly reduced the congestion in the yard outside the classrooms. Please note that we are unable to allow siblings to go to each other’s classes to be picked up together as we are not allowed to mix bubbles.

Now we are in good routines can I just remind you of the following;

  • Please ensure children have book bags and water bottles with them when you drop off to reduce contact with the school office
  • Please ring the office if you have any queries 01914334200
  • From Monday, strictly one adult only to accompany KS1 children. KS2 children to be dropped off at school gates
  • Children to remain with adult at all times – no running ahead please
  • Children on bikes and scooters must get off at school gate and walk in to school
  • Please do not gather or chat to other parents on the school grounds as this causes an obstruction
  • Please socially distance yourself from other families
  • Do not park or drop off on double yellow lines unless you are a blue badge holder
  • Please be respectful of residents when parking in the surrounding area, do not block driveways, damage landscaping by pulling up on to grassed and planted areas and do not park in turning areas

Important Information

As we have a child in school with a nut allergy can I ask you not to send nuts into school in packed lunches or as snacks.

I also wanted to inform you that from next week I will not be in school Mondays. Mrs Brooks will be Headteacher on a Monday. I remain the substantive Headteacher and will be available as usual from Tuesday to Friday. Mrs Brooks will be available Mondays. We are looking forward to this new way of working and will ensure it is business as usual from the children’s, staffs’ and parents’ point of view.

Have a lovely weekend.

Best wishes

Ms Thompson
