Upon arrival, you will notice a one way system in operation with markers spaced 2m apart. We ask that when you are waiting to either drop off or pick your child, you remain on the markers socially distanced from other parents.

Bubbles

Children are to wear their uniform each day and it is essential that they bring their own labelled water bottle. There will be no working water fountain available in school. We must insist at this time that no other items are brought into school.
The daily timetable for children will look very similar to before lockdown. Children will now be in year group ‘bubbles’ in their usual classes of 30.

Regular Cleaning

We would like to reassure parents and carers that there will still be daily cleaning of all classrooms and equipment before children’s arrival. Hand washing will be timetabled regularly throughout the day and children will be consistently reminded of its importance in controlling the spread of germs.

Catering Arrangements

School kitchens will be fully open from the start of the Autumn term and will serve both hot and cold food. Free school meals (FSM) will be provided as normal and children can bring a packed lunch if they wish to.
Pupils will be asked to remain in their year groups at lunchtime and will eat their lunches in the school hall. Lunchtimes will be staggered so tables are fully cleaned before another year group enter the hall. Infection control and social distancing measures will continue to be enforced during lunchtime and pupils will not share food, utensils, or cups.

During The Day

The children will continue to have break times and lunchtime play and will also have scheduled times in the forest area and outdoor learning zones as we continue to prioritise outdoor time as much as possible. Year group bubbles will not mix during the day, which may mean they will not interact with some friends who may be in different year groups. Children within bubbles will be encouraged to maintain social distancing as much as is possible for young children.

End Of The Day

At the end of the day, children can be collected from their own classrooms (where possible).
