As we gradually move back to normal we no longer need to allocate the children to bubbles or restrict entry times etc. However, until we consider it safe to do so, visitors to site will continue to be by appointment, including parents who are respectfully asked to remain outside when dropping and collecting their children and to move away once their child has entered/come out of school. Government now recomment the wearing of masks whilst dropping children off and collecting. We would, therefore, appreciate it if those dropping children off/collecting did so.
Start and End of the School Day
Parents are asked to drop their children off between 8.40 am and 8.50 am and collect them at the end of the school day (3.30 pm).
Each year group have been allocated gate(s) as below:
|Year 1||main gate|
|Year 2||gate opposite year 2 classroom or field gate|
|Year 3||gate opposite year 2 classroom or field gate|
|Year 4||bottom playground gate or field gate|
|Year 5||bottom playground gate or field gate|
|Year 6||bottom playground gate or field gate|
Please collect your children from the gate they entered at the start of the day. Staff will be at the gates to support the children to enter school and to take any messages. Staff will also be at gates at the end of the school day.
Children are supervised whilst eating their packed lunch or hot meal in addition to when they are playing outside.
Reception and Years 1 and 2 children are entitled to Universal Free School meals. In addition, hot meals are provided to children on benefit-related free school meals. Meals must be ordered via ParentPay.
Hot meals are also available for KS2 children at a cost of £2.50 per meal and are bookable per half term via ParentPay.
As items brought in from home need to be kept to a minimum, children should only bring in: a snack, such as a fresh fruit or vegetable (not wrapped or packed), to eat during breaktime; their packed lunch (if not having a school lunch) and water in a bottle. Fizzy drinks are not allowed but squash and fruit juice for lunch is fine.
A free piece of fruit is provided each day for the three younger classes.
Our Eco-Warriors have requested that children reduce the soft plastics they bring to school. Please bear this in mind and consider re-usable containers. These should be compact, secure, and named. Glass containers are not allowed.
