Welcome back to school! We are all really excited to be back with the children and are looking forward to a new school year. Our first day back in school is Monday 7th September and all the children will be returning to class “bubbles”. As you may know we are staggering the school day in order that we can get everyone on/off the site whilst observing social distancing. We politely ask that where possible adults drop children at the boundary of the school rather than entering the site. Where necessary to enter, please only send one adult per family. In year 1 we are starting school at 8.55am and we will be asking the children to line up so we can lead the children into school through separate doors. We will bring the children outside to line up at 3pm at the end of the day in the year 1 and 2 playground. We ask that you keep away from the doors and stand well back near the edge of the playground so that we can send the children from the line safely to you.
Children will return to school in full uniform apart from on days when they have PE when we ask that you send them in their school PE kit. In Year 1 our P.E. days will be Monday and Friday.
Children may bring essential items from home into school: lunchboxes, coats, book bags etc. However non-essential items must not come between home and school e.g. pencil cases, show and tell items etc. We will be sending reading books home from September but there will be a delay between books coming back into school and new ones coming home. This is in order that we can quarantine books for the recommended 48 hours before returning them to shelves. In Year 1 we will collect reading books in on a Monday and then send a new one out by Wednesday. We do have a significant number of reading books out on loan with our families at the moment and it would help us greatly if you could send these in.
