September Opening Arrangements 

 

 

Dear Parents/Carers

 

We are coming towards the end of a very unusual school year.  We would like to thank you for your support and patience during these difficult times.

 

The DFE have released their latest guidance for the wider opening of school in September. Part of the guidance states that schools should stagger the start and end times to reduce the number of children and parents in the playground at one time.

 

From September the children will be arriving at the following times:

 

 

Start Time

End Time

Reception RED

8.50

2.50

Reception BLUE

9.00

3.00

Reception GREEN

9.10

3.10

Year 1

8.50

3.00

Year 2

9.00

3.10

Year 3

8.50

3.00

Year 4

9.05

3.10

Year 5

8.50

3.00

Year 6

9.05

3.10

 

We are hoping to be able to open the before and after school club for working parents from September in line with the government guidance.

 

It is important that your child arrives to school at the time allocated and are picked up at the correct time to avoid congestion. Also, the school will be operating a one parent drop off policy to reduce numbers. Parents in Key Stage 2 will be asked to drop their child at the gate and will not be allowed into the school, unless by appointment. If you need to contact your teacher, please phone the school or use the class Gmail system.

 

Once in school, children will be kept in year group bubbles and will have staggered break times and dinner times in an attempt to keep year groups separate.

 

Thank you for your continued support.
