  • If your child has a runny nose, continuous sneezing, diarrhoea or is vomiting please keep them at home.
  • Please let us know if your child is going to be late or has a medical appointment. Ring the school office to let us know when you are likely to arrive. Let the office staff know if you need to pick your child up early.

Pupil arrival

  • Only one parent or adult should bring the child/ family to school
  • Children must arrive at their specific entry on time not early or late
  • You will be asked to say goodbye to your child at the appropriate entrance/door.
  • Children should remain with their own family on entry in the school grounds.
  • Your child should bring a water bottle with their name on. This should stay in the classroom all week.
  • Children will not need to bring any additional items such as pens, pencils. They will all be provided in labelled pencil case for each individual child.
  • Children are not required wear masks/PPE in school.

 

 

 

School staff

 

 

  • Staff will communicate with parents via telephone/text the school website as no parents are allowed in the school building.
  • If you need to speak with school staff, please ring the office to make an appointment
  • Staff will have access to appropriate PPE when required (eg First aid / symptomatic child)

 

 

Classroom

 

  • Windows and classroom doors will wherever possible, remain open for ventilation
  • Many of our hard to clean resources such as sand and soft furnishings have been removed.
  • Surfaces in the classroom will be wiped down regularly and resources children have been using cleaned with anti-viral cleansers.
  • The full classroom will be cleaned daily
  • Children will be encouraged to maintain social distancing when moving around the classroom and building but they will mix with other children in their “bubble”
  • There will be some new “routines” such as regular Handwashing and ‘Keeping to your bubble’ in place.

Behaviour

 

  • We know that some children may be unsettled at first and so we will be planning activities to support their emotional health and wellbeing.
  • We will look out for any signs of distress and would ask you to let us know if you have noticed any changes in their behaviour at home.
  • We want children to feel safe but we don’t want them to feel anxious so any new rules or behaviour expectations will be reinforced in a positive manner. We’d ask you to try to do the same.
  • We will let you know what the children are doing well and, if there is anything they need to do in a safer or more positive way we will work with you to help them do that.

 

 

Break times

 

  • Children will wash their hands before and after any break and lunch time.
  • Children will stay in their “Bubbles” and not mix with children from other Year Group Bubbles
  • Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will have “fruit for schools” snacks.
  • Children will only use toilets allocated to their bubble.

 

 

Lunch times

 

 

  • Children will wash their hands before and after lunch
  • The Lunch Time period will be staggered. Each year group (bubble) will enter the hall at a specific time and between each bubble exiting and entering tables etc will be cleaned.
  • Each bubble will play in a designated place in the yard and children will not mix between Bubbles.
  • Children will only use toilets allocated to their bubble.

 

First aid / child with symptoms

 

 

 

 

  • We have designated first aiders and Paediatric first aiders who will wear appropriate PPE when dealing with a child with symptoms or have simply grazed their knee etc.
  • If your child develops symptoms during the day you will be asked to collect them immediately. A member of staff will remain with them until they are collected. You will need to ring 111 to arrange a COVID test. If the test is positive you must inform the school and the child and family should remain in self-isolation for 14 days.

 

Cleaning

  • Additional cleaning measures are in place
  • Each “Bubble” will have all “touch points” (eg desks, light switches, door handles) wiped down regularly
  • Toilets will be cleaned regularly
  • All classrooms will be thoroughly cleaned each day.

 

 

Home time

  • Children will leave at different times to avoid congestion.
  •  Please try not to arrive early. If older siblings are collecting your child, they must arrive at the correct time your child is leaving school. They will not be allowed to congregate on the school premises waiting for school to end.
  • To keep everyone safe please leave the school grounds as quickly as possible.
