Dear parents and carers,
We will continue to update this page with information about school opening and how this will be organised. If you have a question that has not been answered, please do message your class teacher through Bloomz, or alternatively call the school office if it is urgent. We will update the frequently asked questions with this information periodically, which will help everyone. Please be advised that school must remain flexible in light of Government guidance though, which may mean we have to make changes to what is written here. We will work hard to communicate this in advance where we can.
The timetable for the day will continue to be staggered to adhere to social distancing guidelines. Those who are able to should continue to wear a face covering when dropping off and collecting your children at the end of the day and maintain distance.
Year 5 and 6 are expected to be at school for lessons to begin at 8:45, with the school day ending at 14:50.
The gates will not open before 8:40 as the playground is not supervised until this time.
Year 3 and 4 are expected to begin school at 8:55 and will finish at 15:05 - normal school opening and closing times.
Here is our online learning offer for children who are self-isolating to access:

Parent Code of Conduct
We will expect all parents to follow this simple code of conduct in order to keep our whole community as safe as possible:

Sharing our expectations with your children:
Here is the presentation that we continue to use to remind children your children of our health and safety expectations. All teachers will use and adapt it to ensure that it is appropriate for all the children in their class to understand: Keeping ourselves safe at school during the coronavirus (1).pptx
We will continue to monitor symptoms that could be linked to coronavirus really carefully and will send children home if they have any of the identified systems. We expect parent co-operation with this, to keep everyone safe. If your child has one of these symptoms as the day starts, we would expect you to keep them at home:
A high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
A new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
A loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
