Information for parents and guardians

2 September 2020 (by admin)

Hi everyone.

All of the children have settled back into school really well this morning. We are very impressed and are loving having your children back with us. Just a little reminder about pick up points and times for tonight.

New Y1 - 3pm at the Reception classroom door.
New Y2 - 3.15pm at the Y1 classroom doors.
New Y3 - 3.30pm at the Y2 classroom doors.
New Y4 - 3.15pm at the car park.
New Y5 - 3pm at the car park.
New Y6 - 2.45pm at the car park.


Mrs Lumsdon and myself would like to thank you all for your help in making this morning run as smoothly as it did. We appreciate the new normal is very different and we understand it can be problematic for some families. However we are thankful that we can all work together to keep each other safe.

We would be grateful if tonight, parents could arrive as close to pick up times as possible. There is a waiting area on the school car park for those parents who have multiple children to pick up at varying times should anyone wish to wait on school premises, socially distanced of course!

A few notes on other safety measures; the wearing of face masks on our premises is encouraged, and when entering the school building compulsory please! Also the playground equipment is out of use for health and safety reasons, so could parents ensure children are kept away from these areas on both yards.

Although this is all new for us
at the moment, it will soon become very familiar. Government guidelines are currently unchanged so this system will remain in place until we receive further information.

Again we thank you for you co-operation and support during these challenging times
