For all parents

  • Please be punctual for drop off and collection from school.  The school gates will be closed at 8.51am precisely as children should be in class ready for registration by 8.40/8.50am.  If you arrive after this time, your child will need to be signed in late at the school office.
  • Do not arrive more than a few minutes earlier than your child’s start/finish time.
  • Please do not wait close to the school building or in the coned off walk way, please use the designated waiting area to the rear of the main playground.

See the attached map for the details.

  • We ask that only one adult brings the children to school and collects at the end of the school day.  We ask that all adults on school site wear a face covering.
  • Parents are reminded about the importance of socially distancing when on the playground or at the school gates.

 

Face coverings

As per the government guidance, all staff and adults are requested to wear face coverings whilst on the school grounds, in public areas, unless medically exempt.

 

Access to the school office

Access to the school office is by appointment only.  Please contact the school office via telephone or email to make arrangements.  When arriving for your appointment, please stand away from the door and behind the table. Please keep 2 metres between you and other adults at all times.

First Aid and Medical
If your child’s medical needs have changed please inform the school office and class teacher as soon as the change happens via email.  Please send in inhalers or other medications on Monday 8th March.
First Aid will be managed in the classroom or corridor areas by appropriate staff.  In the event of a serious medical issue this may be dealt with in the medical room or other suitable place.


Lunch
The menu for lunches has been amended.  The menu is available on the school website, and orders can be placed in the classroom as normal and must be paid for online using your child’s ScoPay account.  We cannot accept cash.


Year R will walk to the hall to eat their lunch in their class groups.  The children will collect their lunch from the HC3S serving hatch.
Children in Years 1 to 6 will continue to eat their lunch in the classroom supervised by lunchtime supervisory staff.


Please remember we are a nut free school, and children should not bring nuts or nut products into school. (This also includes coconut and chocolate spread).

 

Snacks
Year R and Infants are provided with fruit or vegetable daily. 

Junior children may bring in a piece of fruit or vegetable to eat at breaktime if they would like.

 

Water Bottles
All children must bring a named water bottle to school daily.

 

Class and Year Group Bubbles
Children will be based in class bubbles for all lessons and learning activities.  We have decided that we will have Year group bubbles for break and lunchtimes on the playground outside for the next four weeks.
Lunch will still be eaten in separate classrooms.
Year group bubbles will allow the children to see more of their friends, but we will also be reminding the children of social distancing and following of COVID protocols as in the Autumn term.

 

Hygiene and Hand Washing
Children will be expected to wash their hands regularly throughout the day. 

 

 

Equipment needed in school by your child
Your child needs to wear school uniform.
Your child can bring to school their water bottle, book bag or small bag for school equipment such as reading book, diary and their lunch box.

Due to the need for additional ventilation, we have more windows and doors open in school.  Extra vests, t-shirts or jumpers are encouraged.  Please ensure all clothing is named

 

PE
For Spring term 2 children should continue to wear PE kit on the days that their class is having PE.  Please ensure your child has an extra vest, t-shirt or jumper, with long jogging trousers/bottoms.  Scheduled PE days are:

Reception – Wednesday & Friday

Year 1 – Tuesday & Thursday

Year 2 – Monday & Wednesday

Year 3 – Wednesday & Thursday

Year 4 – Monday & Thursday

Year 5 – Tuesday & Friday

Year 6 – Tuesday and Friday

 

Breakfast and afterschool club

Breakfast and afterschool clubs will resume from 8th March.  Children can be dropped off to the school office between 7.30 am and 8am each morning for breakfast club.  Children attending afterschool club should be collected no later than 5.30pm Monday to Thursday and 5pm on Friday from the school office.  Places are limited and must be booked via ScoPay at least 48 hours in advance.
 

Communication with the school and class teachers
All visits to the school will continue to be limited and by appointment only.

Please do not try to speak with the class teacher at doors at the start or end of the school day; they will be busy supporting the children as they come into school.  Please send an email.
A parent will be able to come into the building if their child is unwell and needs to be taken home.

Letter for parents about COVID-19 symptoms

Public Health England have produced a letter for schools to distribute to parents which explains when a person requires a coronavirus test and what the symptoms of coronavirus are. The Department would be grateful if you could share and circulate this letter amongst parents at your school.

The intention of the letter is to help prevent children being taken out of school unnecessarily and answer some of the questions parents may have around testing.

You can view the letter here.

     

 

COVID-19: letter to clinically extremely vulnerable people

NHS 0-18 Years Website

It can be extremely stressful when your child is unwell. We know that there is a huge amount of information available at your fingertips, but finding something that provides clear and accurate information is not always easy!

The resources on the Healthier Together website have been developed in partnership between parents and healthcare professionals from across Dorset, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. You'll find clear information on common childhood illnesses, including advice on what 'red-flag' signs to look out for, where to seek help if required, what you should do to keep your child comfortable and how long your child's symptoms are likely to last.
