***RE-OPENING UPDATE - THURSDAY 21ST MAY 2020***
 
Dear Parents/Carers
 
 
I write with an update on the plans put in place to reopen school to Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 with effect from 1st June. As you are aware, all of our plans have been in consultation with the local authority and department for education and we said we would update you with any changes or information.
 
Yesterday, we were contacted by the local authority (as our employers) reassuring us of their duty, in relation to the health and safety of all staff, pupils and community. As such, today we are submitting all risk assessments and plans again to a specialist Covid-19 panel.
 
From the 25th May multi-disciplinary panels within the local authority will be meeting to scrutinise and agree to our plans. Although they will endeavour to respond to us as quickly as possible it may be that their response will not have been received before 1st June and as such this proposed date for reopening cannot be guaranteed without their authority.
 
As always, the safety of our community is of paramount importance to the local authority and ourselves, and as such until further notice, school will only remain open for the families of key workers and vulnerable children. Please be reassured that as soon as we have confirmation from the authority that our plans meet all safety requirements, school will update you with any new plans or intended start date.
 
We understand that this may cause further disruption, however as you can appreciate from watching the news updates we are living in an ever changing world and children’s and staff safety has to be at the heart of any decision made.
 
Thanks for your understanding
 
Mrs K Whitfield

Back-to-School Information - 18th May 2020

Dear parent/carers

 

I realise that sending children back to school after such a long-time home schooling and isolation must seem very unreal and a little worrying. School has always been a safe place and we will continue to do everything, under any circumstance, for it to remain so. As you can imagine after the announcement on Sunday, we have been working hard on plans to safety welcome your children back in and return to a ‘new’ normal’ and I want to share these with you.

We will be:

  • Parents will NOT be fined if you decide NOT to send your child to school
  • Splitting each class group into two so the maximum amount of children in any class will be 15, although results from the questionnaire sent out indicate that not all children will be returning so there is a good possibility of numbers running at about 10 in each class. Obviously, this will need to change if we look in the future to trying to get more children back in, I will update you in the future about this.
  • The children that have been allocated places throughout the lockdown will still be coming in but unless they are in Reception, year 1 or year 6 they will be allocated a separated space in an additional classroom.
  • The school day will need to change to ensure staggered times for parents to drop off.
  • Both school yard gates will be opened so that when you drop your child you can use the Reception gate to enter and exit through the KS2 gate- parents will not able to wait in the playground in order to ensure social distancing.
  • Collection of children will happen in the same way, with children waiting in their groups so that you can walk through the yard, collect your child and leave through the other. Staff will be there to help with social distancing lines on the playground floor
  • If your child is year 6 then you will be able to drop your child at the KS2 entrance gate for them to come directly into school- again staff will be there to show you.
  • The school day times will look slightly different in order again to stagger pick up to maintain social distancing in the yard and enable the cleaning staff to deep clean every day at the end of the day.
  • Reception -8.30-2pm      Yr 1 - 8.45 -2                Yr 6 - 9-3pm
  • Key worker and vulnerable places – 7.30-3.00 pm please us the yard entrance not the front entrance as usual – I realise that staggering may cause problems if there are children in different key stages however schools are having to make difficult decisions in order to keep everyone safe.
  • No breakfast or after school club so please make sure all children come to school having had a breakfast.
  • Reception and Year 1 are all entitled to a free school dinner however anyone wishing to send their child with a packed lunch needs to come in a carrier bag so that it can be thrown away when they have finished.
  • All children need to bring their own water bottle, which will be kept at their desk. It needs to go home every night for refilling.
  • Dinner times will be staggered with all children eating their lunch in their own allocated classroom and tables wiped down immediately after. We are planning on continuing to offer a limited choice of hot food for children that are Reception, year 1 or have FSM or pay for a school dinner.
  • A member of staff will be allocated per class to continuously wipe down work surfaces in classrooms
  • Additional cleaning staff will be employed to ensure all toilets, door handles and any work surfaces outside classrooms are wiped down continuously.
  • Breaks and dinner time play will be staggered with a ‘bubble ‘approach adopted so that the children always remain within their class groups to limit contact with staff and other children.
  • All children will be given an individual pencil case with the resources they will need which will remain on their desk
  • All soft toys will be removed-including cushions – as they cannot be easily wiped down and it is impractical to be washing cushions continuously
  • The 2-meter rule will be reinforced with child friendly dot spaces in corridors etc and constant reminders from staff first thing in the morning and after dinner.
  • Any child that needs intimate care –parents will be phoned to collect and change and return to school
  • If first aid needs administering, then school staff have got limited PPE in order to keep themselves and the children safe.
  • If possible if uniforms could be changed and washed every day this may help. However, I understand this may be difficult. Shoe shops are not open at the moment please do not worry it is perfectly acceptable to send them in trainers as small feet may have grown over the last few weeks!
  • If you are not sending our child back to school we will continue to use the DoJo interactive learning that we have been using during lock down – however the teachers will be unable to respond in the same manner as they will be teaching in school and I am sure will agree – this would be an unrealistic workload for our already exhausted teachers.
  • We are currently expecting to remain open throughout the half term holiday for critical care children that have been offered a place and would welcome those that have not taken up their place, when contacted, to come back into school. We do however have limited spaces and need to adhere to the social distancing rule. If possible employers need to try to be supportive of  employees who are unable or do not wish to send their children back to school at the moment as schools will be struggling to accommodate  all children following the safety guidance on social distancing.

I know this seems a lot and possibly a bit overwhelming, but I am sure that you would rather we did too much than not enough. If there are any suggestions or concerns, please get in contact and we will certainly look at them and try to build them into our ‘New norm’.

Kind regards

Karen Whitfield
