Following our return to school in March and in order to ensure that there is no mixing of year group bubbles the following timings currently apply for arrival at and pick up from school.
Drop off at main gate:
Children can enter the school grounds via the main gate from 8:30am but need to be supervised on the playground in the same area they wait at the end of the day (so bubbles are kept separate). The bell is rung at 8:40am at which point the stand still and one class at a time are invited to walk to their classroom. The children do not need to line up. Parents are not allowed on site until 8:40am so if they need to drop their children off, they will have to wait until then.
At the end of the day parents enter at the car park gate and flow through the playground to collect, then leave via the main gate. Year 3 & Year 6 finish the school day at 3:10 pm and Years 4 and 5 at 3:15pm.
Only children in Year 6 will be allowed to walk home alone if we have already had written requests from parents. If you wish your child to walk home please ask the school office for a permission form. Year 5 parents are able to request this from term 4.
Please ensure that your child arrives for school on time. If they arrive at school after the gates have closed they will need to enter via the main School Office, which brings them into contact with the office staff and potentially other pupils and staff in school on their way to class, who are not in their usual bubble.
At present we are seeking to reduce the amount of changing for PE in school (unless they also have Forest School Inspired Learning on that day, please ensure that your child comes into school wearing their PE kit on the following days:
- Year 3 – Monday and Tuesday
- Year 4 – Monday and Thursday
- Year 5 – Tuesday and Friday
- Year 6 – Monday and Wednesday
Forest School Inspired Learning
Please see the table below for details of when year 5 and year 6 will be taking part in forest school inspired learning in term 6.
All children have an hour’s lunch break. Currently, as we continue to limit mixing between bubbles, only one year group eats in the hall at a time. There are 20 minutes for eating under this system and the rest of the time children can play outside on our extensive grounds.
Playtimes are mid-morning and each year group has half of our large play area plus space to play on the field at lunchtimes.
