Welcome back and thank you for your support in getting your child back to school safely.
With cases of Covid rising and the Government increasing restrictions, we want to ensure that the school remains open as long and as safely as possible. So from Monday 14 September, children should be dropped off at the school gate and then walk into the grounds on their own. Please ensure that your children walk through the gates at their given start time - no earlier. There will be an adult on the playground to supervise.
We would be grateful if parents could be mindful about social distancing and not arrive at the school gates early/stay at the gates once their children have gone onto the playground. This is to make sure that the next bubble is able to arrive safely.
If you need to enter the school site, you should wear a mask.
Please do not drive into Upper Chestnut Drive to drop off, or pick up, your child. We need to keep this area free from cars due to the increase in pedestrians.
At the end of the day, children should be collected from the playground. One adult per family to collect. Masks should be worn by adults on the school site. Please can parents be ensure they don't arrive early and leave the playground as soon as they have collected their children. This is to make sure that the next bubble is able to leave safely.
Siblings can be dropped off at the same time - whichever is the earliest start time for them. At collection, children with a 15min+ gap will wait until the sibling with the later finish time is ready. Please arrive at school to collect siblings at whichever is the later time. Adults will supervise the children until then.
Thank you for working with the school to keep us all safe.
In order to avoid lots of adults on site, we have staggered start and finish times. This will remain in place until guidance changes.

We are currently working on curriculum plans and will communicate this with you in September. However, to assist us with this we would appreciate parents completing a 'Technology at Home' survey here.
Please see the below reference guide to pupil absence:
The latest Government guidance for parents and carers is available online here.

When your child is ill or injured, it can be difficult to decide if/when to call your child's GP, NHS 111, or go to the Accident and Emergency Department. While the Government is asking everyone to stay at home, it can be confusing to know what to do. The below guide provides some information on what to do if your child is unwell.
