Arrangements for the start of the new school year 2021-22

The children’s first day back is Thursday 2nd September 2021. Following Government advice on the need to maintain hygiene routines and taking into account that the majority of parents and staff favoured it we will be having a staggered start and finish to the school day. It will not be as spread out as it is now but our arrangements will enable all children to wash their hands on entry and exit to the building and hopefully to reduce the number of children, parents and cars waiting outside. As you will know the volume of traffic outside school can be seriously problematic.

Richards class – Miss Pilling

 8.35am they can come onto the site through the side school gates (the entrance that Mr Jones’ class have used this year).

8.40am – the children will be met and go to wash hands

 8.50am Register in class and settle to work.

Barber class – Miss Bailey

8.35am children can come onto the school site through the two pedestrian gates at the front and wait in the area outside of the pupil gate.

8.40am – they will be met and taken through to wash hands before

8.50am.Register taken with learning starting immediately they enter the classroom.

3.20pm both classes will finish school leaving by the same route as they entered after handwashing.

We would ask that Year 5 parents wait across the road at the end of the day rather than on the site given the small areas available for the children to gather in.
