Covid-19 Information

Initially, children will be entering and leaving the school through different gates and at different times. With staggered start and finish times in place, we will be offering ‘supervision’ time for any parents who have children in different classes; this will provide one drop off and collection time. For example, if you had a child in Bumblebees and Dragonflies, you would drop both children off at 8.30am and collect them both at 3.30pm. During ‘supervision’ time, activities will take place in the classrooms, with the class teacher.

All children will go straight to their classrooms and any children at breakfast club will go to their classroom at 8.30am. Any children attending After School Club will be taken to the main hall at 3.30pm.

All children in Bumblebees, Grasshoppers and Dragonflies, will enter the school via the main entrance.

Please ensure that you are on time and adhering to social distancing rules. Parents will need to drop off and collect their child off at the main gate- there will be no access to the building.

Children should wear full school uniform and will require a PE kit in school. We will no longer share
spare kit, including plimsolls or trainers.

Every child will have their own stationery pack so should not bring in a pencil case or similar to use from home. The use of other equipment or resources that are used across the school and by different year groups will be ‘quarantined’ for the appropriate period of time if they cannot be easily cleaned.

We will have whole school assemblies twice a week but this will take place virtually, with all children remaining in their classrooms

The children will obviously be told to wash their hands frequently including on arrival, before and after being outside, before and after eating and on a regular basis. The children that have been in school since the 1st June have taken to this very well.

All classrooms will be set up in a way that minimises the risk of transmission.

There will, of course, be a need to take into account the time children have been out of school, not only academically but also how it has affected their mental wellbeing and also their readiness to learn. The teachers’ timetables and coverage in class will reflect this; we will not be focusing solely on English and Maths but will continue to provide a broad and balanced curriculum.

As we will need to minimise the number of adults in school, we cannot allow parents into the school building. However the office phone, email and WEDUC can be used to contact any member of staff, to support you in any way. If you do need to meet face-to-face with a member of staff, a minimum of 24 hours notice is required, booked via the main office. As has been the case since June 1st, any
medicines should be dropped into the box in the main entrance, in a labelled bag with a completed medical form.

We are clear about the measures that need to be in place to create safer environments in school to minimise any risks from coronavirus.

Bumblebee Bubble have had a super day! Miss Mills read ‘Traction Man and the Beach Odyssey’ and then Traction Man challenged us to create him a new waterproof suit for swimming! We thought about and designed a fair experiment to test different materials ready that we could use; we made predictions about which we thought would be the best material and ensured we carried out a fair test by measuring the water carefully each time. Our predictions were correct: tin foil and the PVC were the best materials, each gaining five stars. See MoreSee Less
