The Government have announced a third national lockdown would begin on Wednesday 6th January 2021 and that schools should close to all but key/critical workers and children deemed vulnerable.
Arrangements from January 2021:
Detailed below are some of the key details of the arrangements that parents need to be aware of for those eligible and offered provision following the Government's directive to switch to remote education and for schools to offer key worker / vulnerable provision only. The full arrangements are detailed in the agreement, a link to which is found here: January 2021 re-opening for key workers.
Arrival and collection times:
In order to promote social distancing and reduce gathering of larger numbers of people, we will be operating staggered drop-off and collection times as detailed below. Please support us by:
- Ensuring prompt drop-off and collection within the defined windows.
- Limiting the number of parents collecting your child, adhering to 1 adult per child only.
- Maintaining social distancing from other adults at all times.
- Wearing a face covering when in the immediate vicinity of the school site.
- Understanding that for the foreseeable future, there will be restrictions regarding parents accessing the school site.
Rec, Y1 and Y2: 8.55 and then 2.55 with the exception of Friday when it is 12.15
Y3, Y4, Y5 and Y6: 9.5 and then 3.05 with the exception of Friday when it is 12.25
Details relating to the Covid -19 Lateral Flow Test for Staff and Visitors
Zone breakfast and afterschool club
The zone will be operational for essential childcare purposes only. Please refer to latest key worker provision agreement shared January 5th 2021.
Lunchtime and snack arrangements
For the foreseeable future, hot-meal provision will offered in 'grab-bags' that can be eaten in children's classrooms. These should be ordered via the usual methods.
There will also be no opportunity to purchase break time snacks in school but again, children are welcome to bring in their own.
Inline with Government guidance, there will be reduced contact within the school environment for both children and staff. Whilst children will be in their usual classes, they will also be part of a larger 'bubble' with who they will spend their playtimes and lunchtimes, along with other limited curriculum events.
