As part of government’s roadmap to recovery we will be welcoming back children from Year 6 on Monday 1st June, in addition to the ongoing support for our vulnerable children and children of key workers.
Yesterday you received a letter outlining our intent to get our children back to school safely. The letter can be found in the Parents > Letters section of the school website.
Parents and Carers of these children have already been contacted to outline measures we have taken to maximise a safe return of our children, in consultation with public health guidance. Key features of this include: a deep clean and enhanced cleaning regime using disinfection as appropriate, small bubble groups of children to enable social distancing, regular hand washing, and a revised timetable and curriculum to support the mental and physical health of our children, as we all adjust to a new norm. To facilitate social distancing Children in the key worker bubble should enter and exit via the key stage 1 gate, the Year 6 bubble via key stage 2. A senior member of staff will be present to help direct your children safely.
To help reduce face-to-face contact with and between Parents and Carers you can help by sending only one parent/ carer with the child at the start and end of the school day, and observing the social distancing signs that are in place. Year 6 children are invited to walk to and from school on their own but we ask that you help reinforce the message: straight to and from school! Parents and Carers will not be permitted into the school site to reduce the risk of infection.
