As a result of the Coronavirus pandemic we have changed the shape of our school day to help support social distancing and to allow our bubbles of children to be in specific timetabled areas around school. The new framework will give bubbles autonomy around school and restrict mixing.
Children will be grouped in bubbles in their class year (Reception; Year 1; Year 2; Year 3; Year 4; Year 5; and Year 6)
The start and end of the day, break and lunch times are staggered to limit the number of children moving in and around school. Children should only enter school via their specified gate, please click here for details. Siblings must stay with their parents/carers and enter their appropriate gate. Families are expected to socially distance at all gates whilst waiting for their child to enter.
Parents and Carers 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. Please refer to letter sent to parents on 4 March for more details
- that just one adult accompany children to school and to collect them
- wear a mask to school
One-way routes will be in operation around the school and, where lessons/weather permits learning will take place outside. Whole school events, such as assemblies, will take place virtually with bubbles remaining in their classrooms.
Please refer to the Extended School tab for details of Breakfast and After School Clubs.
Children are supervised whilst eating their packed lunch or hot meal in addition to when they are playing outside. Supervisers remain with their bubble.
Reception and Years 1 and 2 children are entitled to Universal Free School meals, which must be ordered via ParentPay. 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. Containers should be compact, secure and named. Glass or tin containers are not allowed, neither are fizzy drinks, squash or fruit juice.
A free piece of fruit is provided each day for the three younger classes.
