Letter to Parents from Mrs McBeth 31.8.21

Tuesday 31st August


Dear Parents/Carers,


I hope you have had a lovely summer and have been able to enjoy some sunshine!


Here are just a few reminders for the return to school next week. School reopens on Tuesday 7th September and will now be operating a drop off system between 8.45am and 9am. Children will enter school immediately through their appropriate door during that 15 minute period- see below.


  • Reception and Year 1 pupils will enter via the doors on their respective yards.
  • Y2 pupils will enter through the small hall.
  • Y3/4 pupils will use the door to the right of the large hall
  • Y5 and 6 pupils will use the door immediately inside the school yard, at the far right of the school near the car park.

Staff will be supervising each of these doors and they will be opened each morning promptly at 8.45am. Unless attending Breakfast Club no children should be unaccompanied on the school premises before 8.45am. KS2 children will not be allowed in the school yard before the start of the school day.

All children must be in school for the start of the school day at 9am.


Also please remember at the end of the day Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children will finish school at 3.10pm and will be collected from the door in which they entered and children in Years 3,4,5 and 6 will finish school at 3.20pm. Parents of KS2 children should wait in the usual KS2 area at the front of the school. In order to avoid any confusion at home time, if your child is in Year 5 or 6 and will be leaving school unaccompanied please notify either the school office or class teacher.


Breakfast Club will be running as normal from Tuesday 7th September. There is no need to book and the cost will be £2. As COVID restrictions have been lifted there is now no longer a limit upon the number of children who can attend. All children will be escorted to their appropriate classroom at 8.45am.


We have also been lucky enough to secure funding to continue to provide all children with a bagel for breakfast for the start of the school day. Bagels will be delivered to each class at 8.45am.


A reminder that uniform consists of red jumper or cardigan, grey skirt or trousers (not leggings), yellow polo shirt and black shoes or trainers. Please remember there is no obligation to buy uniform which displays the Jarrow Cross badge, a red jumper from any supermarket is perfectly acceptable. As last year children will wear their PE Kits for school on PE Days. Please remember that PE Kit as in accordance with our uniform code consists of a white T-shirt, black shorts/jogging bottoms and red school jumper.


Although in accordance to DFE Guidance the children will no longer be confined to bubbles we will still be taking extra measures in school for example the lunch time period will continue to be staggered and whole school assemblies will not yet be taking place. Also as previously stated we will very importantly still be promoting good hygiene rules such as handwashing and sanitizing of hands on entry to the building, regular cleaning of tables and shared areas etc.


Enjoy the last week of the holidays and I look forward to seeing you all next week.


Take Care,


Mrs McBeth
