Letter from Mrs Buckley

 

Dear Parents

 

As we come to the end of our first full week I want to congratulate everyone, children, staff and parents for following all our new systems so that our re-opening to all pupils has been a big success.

 

Although a bubble at Yew Tree has had to be closed this week we have had no cases of anyone catching the virus at either school right from the start of the lockdown when we were only open to some pupils.

 

The recent case was caught in the home which is why the government is imposing the gathering of no more than 6 restriction and why in Oldham we can’t go in anyone’s home or garden unless they are part of our support bubble.

 

Keep up the good work and hopefully we will all stay safe and well.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Martine Buckley

Dear Parents/Carers,

 

School will be open tomorrow for all year groups.  You should have already received a text to remind you when your child needs to attend.

 

Although things aren’t fully back to ‘normal’ at the moment we will try to do as much as possible to make things as ‘normal’ as we can.

 

Something we will need your help with, we have listed below and once again we would like to thank you for all your support during this difficult time.

 

Reminders for parents

  • Only one parent to pick up/drop off children.
  • Parents to remain outside of school building.
  • Parents to communicate with class teacher through email (email addresses are on website/app and will be on year group newsletters).
  • Children to only arrive a few minutes before their designated start time.
  • Parents please try to social distance from other parents where possible.
  • Children to bring their own water bottles.
  • Ensure children wash their hands before leaving for school and on their return.

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.
