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.
There are six bubbles, within which children will remain for the duration of each day:
- Reception Class
- Years 1 and 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 (details for each year group may be accessed below) or the field gate. 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 ask to respectfully remain outside when dropping and collecting their children.
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.
During lockdown restrictions announced January 2021, each day will be a full day for those in school. Children will be in their class bubbles and will continue to follow the staggered start and end times. They should, however, all come to school through the main gate (Rec, Y3) or front gate by Year 2 (Y1, Y2, Y4, Y5 and Y6) and will then filter down or around to their classroom door.
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.
