Weekly Update

This week's update letter concerning any adaptions to the arrangements that we have in school has been sent to all families via ParentMail.  A copy of the letter can be found HERE. We hope you will find this useful but if you do have any questions, please do get in touch.


From Monday 21 September:

  • Face Coverings 

We know that any potential transmission of the virus is increased between adult-to-adult interactions and that this interaction is at its greatest at the start and end of the school day. With this in mind, we would like to ask all adults (and anyone aged 12+) to wear a face covering when on the school site for drop off, collection, as well as in the case of attendance at any essential meetings that we need to hold in school.

  • Changes To Drop Off and Collection Of KS2 Pupils


Start of Day
  • The Junior gate (outside the school office) will be open between 8:45 am and 9:00 am
  • Children will enter through the Junior gate at the following times:
Year 6 Year 5 Year 4 Year 3
8:45 am 8:50 am 8:55 am 9:00 am
  • There will be a one way system in place up the entrance pathway beneath the school banners
  • Pupils will congregate in their year group bubbles on the Junior playground
  • All Junior teaching staff will be on duty on the playground from 8:45 am


End of Day

  • Collection will be from the Junior gate
  • Parents/carers should not come up to the Junior gate until the allocated time in order to prevent congestion and therefore risk.
Year 6 Year 5 Year 4 Year 3
3:20 pm 3:15 pm 3:10 pm 3:05 pm
Year 3 - 6 Sibling Group: 3:25 pm

Year 2  Year 1 EYFS

The end of the day arrangements will remain as they are currently.


Social Distancing Reminder

As you are aware, the Government has ordered that we must not meet with people from other households socially in groups of more than 6. This applies indoors and outdoors. As this is difficult for us at the start and end of the school day, it is vitally important that social distancing between adults is adhered to. Face coverings should also be worn as advised above.


Please ensure you do not congregate on or around the school site after you have dropped off or picked up your child. This will allow everyone to leave promptly and safely.


We really do appreciate your ongoing support and the patience that you are showing as we undertake the essential reviews and adaptations needed during these rapidly changing times.
