Car Park

Due to some security issues over the Easter holidays we are working with the Parish Council and the police to keep our field and car park safe. as a result we are currently having to stand watch on the gates. From next week we will be keeping the gates open from 8.20-9am and 2.55-3.35. After this the gates will be locked. If you wish to use the field and play park after this time, please ensure that you have moved your car from the car park. Many thanks for your co-operation on this matter, we hope that it will not be for too long as we know how useful and important the car park is for our school community.

Attendance

Please avoid booking holidays in term time. The children have missed such a lot of learning over the last two academic years it is even more important that they are in school as much as possible.

Clubs

We are not currently running any school based extra curricular clubs but Mr Tran has prepared a list of links of out of school clubs and activities- see additional letter.

Precious Items

Please ensure that your child DOES NOT bring precious items (including jewellery) into school as we cannot be responsible for items if they get lost.
Mobile phones that are necessary MUST be handed into the school office at the beginning of the day.

School Organisation

School organisation will be very similar to before Christmas. We will continue to stagger the start and end of the day to minimise the number of pupils in one space at the same time. It is essential that you keep to your times and leave school quickly to make space for the next classes arriving / leaving. If you arrive early, please wait in the car park until it is time to join the queue (only queue if there is a coloured dot available for you to stand on). If you are happy to drop your child at the turning circle – there will be a member of staff to receive your child(ren).

Class R  Drop off 9.00am   Pick up 3.15pm (main entrance)
Class 1   Drop off 9.00am   Pick up 3.20pm (tennis courts)
Class 2   Drop off 8.50am   Pick up 3.20pm (main entrance)
Class 3   Drop off 8.40am   Pick up 3.10pm (main entrance)
Class 4   Drop off 8.40am   Pick up 3.10pm (tennis courts)
Class 5   Drop off 8.30am   Pick up 3.00pm (main entrance
Class 6  Drop off 8.30am   Pick up 3.00pm (tennis courts)

Brothers and sisters may be dropped off and collected at the same time. Please drop off at the correct time for the eldest sibling.

The gate on the main road will be opened from 8.30 for families to drop children off (at the gate) in their allotted slot. There will be a member of staff on duty to receive the children. Please note that parents will not be admitted onto school grounds through this gate at this time.

Contacting the school

If you need to contact the school please try to do this by phone or email rather than coming to the school office. Please note that the main office email should be used for this purpose. Class emails will only be used for communication about remote learning (for pupils who have been told to self-isolate) and monitored once a week by teachers. If you need to come into school, you will need to wear a face covering and ensure that you have cleaned your hands.

Visitors in school

In order to continue to keep our school community safe, we will be continuing to limit the number of visitors in school. Unfortunately, at this point, this includes parent helpers. As soon as it is safe to have more parents in school, we will let you know as we really value the help that you are able to give in less restricted times.

School Uniform

The children should come to school in their school uniform. We know that some children will have grown out of their school uniform and that there is limited availability at the moment. There will be allowances made for this over the next few weeks and please contact us if we can help in any way. The PTA have washed and sorted a large amount of second hand uniform which will be available on a rail for you to come and help yourselves to on the following days:

Monday – Class R
Tuesday- Class 1
Wednesday- Class 2
Thursday – Class 3 and 4
Friday- Class 5 and 6.

Please ensure that you respect social distancing rules when collecting items (hand sanitiser will be available)

PE & Forest School

On the days when your child has PE or Forest School, they should come to school dressed for these activities. A timetable will be provided with this week’s newsletter.
