COVID19/Coronavirus Advice and Communication

The Government has asked schools to reopen fully to all year groups on Monday 7th September and attendance is once again legally required.


We have been working hard to ensure that our children and staff are safe, as we welcome our children back to school. Below I have outlined some of the things that will happen in school that will help us maintain a safe environment for all.


What happens in school? 

  • Within the school building the children will remain in class ‘bubbles’.
  • Children will be expected to wear normal school uniform.
  • The children can bring a bag, a lunch box, a drinks bottle, a hat, coat and their PE kit (please make sure all items are labelled. Returning lost items to the correct person will be more important than ever).
  • Children must not bring in personal items, such as toys, pencil cases, etc.
  • A member of staff will be on duty to welcome the children at the start of the school.
  • On arrival, children will wash their hands.  Children will wash their hands regularly through the course of the day. All classrooms have a sanitizer dispenser.
  • Children will be following a normal timetable and be moving around the school within their class ‘bubble’.
  • Children can have a cooked dinner or bring a packed lunch as normal.


Class Drop off and Collection

The school is blessed with a large playground and field and we can accommodate all the children coming into school at the same time whilst maintaining social distancing.

Whilst every effort will be made to ensure bubbles do not cross, we cannot guarantee this as children move around the school. The DfE guidance does state however, that transmission of the virus if children pass in corridors is highly unlikely. The evidence suggests that the risks to children are vanishingly small. 


  • A bell will ring at 8.55am indicating that the children will need to line up by their designated door.
  • A second bell will then ring shortly after, indicating that the children will be led into class by their teacher.
  • If it is raining, the children are welcome to go straight to class from 8.50am.
  • At the end of the school day, the children will be dismissed when their parent is seen in the playground.


Entrances and Exits

Reception – Entrance by Alicia’s garden (Right door)

Parents of children in Reception and Year 1 classes can wait in Alicia’s Garden, and then make their way to the main playground if they have children in other year groups to collect.

Year 2 – Entrance by the toilet doors by the hall

Year 3 – Entrance outside the Elm class

Year 4 – Entrance outside Yew class


We would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support over the last few months of the school year and we appreciate all the hard work that many parents have put in with the home learning.
