Dear Parent / Carer
Please click here to view the start and finish time for your child. It is important that you are punctual and keep to these times to avoid the chance of class bubbles mixing. If parents are late for collecting their child at the end of the day, they will need to telephone the school when they do arrive so that the child can be brought out to them (this will be after all other children have left). Please note this should be for one-off emergencies only, not regular occurrences.
Parents should be aware of the need to keep a safe distance away from other families and the recommendation to wear a face mask when queuing with / waiting for their child.
We also wish to advise you that a pass will be sent home with pupils on their first day – an example has been sent via SchoolPing however most will have your child’s photo and initials (unless we have been asked otherwise). It is important that you keep this pass secure and bring it with you each time you come to collect your child. A code word will also be sent for you tomorrow / Friday to use in conjunction with the card. We are doing this to safeguard your child and would ask for your support with this.
Our school telephone service will not be available until 9.30am each day however messages can be left if you phone before that time. Please ensure you speak slowly and clearly and provide a contact number for us to call back on if required.
If you have not done so already, could you please ensure that the data collection forms which were sent before the summer break, are returned by your child on the first day back.
Please can we ask for your patience with all staff and other parents at the start and end of each day as we try to ensure children enter, and are dismissed, in a safe and orderly manner.
Thank you for your anticipated support.
Mrs S Anwar-Bleem
Thursday 3rd September Update:
Dear Parents and Carers,
Firstly, we would like to say a big thank you for supporting us by arriving at staggered times this morning. Overall, the process of admitting children into school this morning went smoothly.
Please see the revised timetable which explains the correct entry and exit point for your child. Gates have been numbered so that you can identify them easily.
Please don’t arrive too early as you may have to wait until we are ready for your child to be admitted into school. At home time, any parents who are late will be asked to wait until all other children have been collected so please help us by being punctual.
Teachers have been asked to ensure that they are also punctual when bring their classes out at the end of the day so that they are ready for you to collect on time.
This is all very new to us and we are trying out a system which we believe will ensure the safe arrival and departure of your children. We are listening to your feedback and making tweaks based on our own observations to make entry and exit as efficient as possible.
We would also like to remind you that no parents are allowed on the school premises. If you really need to speak to a member of staff, then please call the school office on 01274 773350 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
