Start of the Day:
  • All classes will start school again at the same time – 8.45am. Doors will open at 8.40am to allow pupils time to enter school
  • Rec, KS1 and Y3 children will enter school through the main entrance to be greeted each day by the staff, and go through onto the playground as they used to do – please use the garden area paths to queue
  • Remember that the equipment outside reception has been set up by the staff for morning lessons – this is not for children to play with and we ask that parents ensure children stand sensibly with them and do not touch any learning equipment
  • Y4-Y6 children will use the gate at the side of school next to Y3
  • Children can again come on bikes/scooters and store them in the bike sheds on the play ground – children doing this should use the side gate so bikes aren’t walked through the school
  • We would like to keep the one way system in place still, so ask that parents enter site through the pedestrian gate near the field, and leave site through the gate on the car park to help ease the pedestrian traffic
  • There will be a lot of children coming through the front entrance again, so we ask that parents are patient whilst these routines are re-established

 

End of the Day:
  • All classes will finish at 3.15pm
  • Rec, Y1 and Y2 will be released from their classroom doors at the front of the building
  • Y3 will be released through the front entrance
  • Y4 will be released through their fire door onto the playground
  • Y5 will be released through the main double doors from the new KS2 area
  • Y6 will come through the side door from the meeting room onto the playground
  • We ask that parents collecting at the end of the day enter site via the path and gate at the side of the school. The large gate from the car park to the play ground will be opened each day to allow parents to leave via this exit, making a one way system for KS2 classes. This will aid congestion at busy times
