Our first week back

Dear Parents and Carers,

Well, we have had a really successful first week back. It has been so pleasing to see the children return and return so happily. It was such a rewarding feeling on Monday morning to see the beaming smiles on the children’s faces as they saw their friends and school staff.

We prepared lots of activities in order to ease the children back into school as well as support their emotional needs. The children responded to these well and in fact were very ready to continue with their day to day lessons. It has been fantastic to see all children settle so well back into their school routine.

As you are aware, we have kept many of the systems in place that worked so well last term which have allowed us to open up as safely as we can. Although some measures are a challenge to manage, it is important that we adhere to these to ensure we are following the DFE guidance.

To ensure we keep everyone safe we need your support too.

We still have the one way system in place for drop off and collection. The aim of this is to give all adults the space to socially distance and we encourage you to use this. We understand that it is further to walk but we have noticed a number of parents choosing to wait outside the school grounds to collect pupils at the end of the day. Unfortunately, if everyone did this the pavement area outside the school would become very overcrowded making it difficult for others to safely pass. Please keep yourselves and others safe by using the system we have put in place.

Parents of Jaguar class, we don’t expect you to use the one way system due to where the pupils exit their classroom, but please be mindful that you are not blocking the pavement while waiting. We would also still advice the wearing of face coverings even though you are outside of the school grounds.

We have also spent a lot of time organising procedures so that we can keep bubbles separate during the school day. This allows us to reduce the impact of Covid on the whole school and keep any cases isolated to just one bubble. Although we encourage social distancing between pupils, the bubble system is our main way of minimising risk and spread of the virus.

Please can we ask that you all be mindful of this, ensuring your children do not mix with other pupils from different bubbles during collection or after school.

We can only beat the virus if we work together.

Thank you for your continued support.

Mr Glover
