What will happen at the start of the day?
We will be opening phase/ year group entrances as well as operating a “flexible start”.
Pupils can arrive at any time from 8.45am to 9.00am at the following entrances:
Nursery and Reception – Use entrance 1 (Main playground entrance – Paul’s Road)
Year 1 and 2 – Use entrance number 2 (Delivery door - Paul’s Road)
Year 3 and 4 – Use entrance number 3 (Main office - Paul’s Road)
Year 5 and 6 – Use entrance number 4 (Between MacDonald’s/ car park - Ranelagh Road)
No. At the moment, we would ask children not to bring bikes and scooters into school - this will be reviewed at Easter.
The main school gate (entrance 1) will be opened between 3.00pm and pupils can be collected at any time between 3.00pm and 3.15pm.
Please do not arrive earlier than this as it will cause an obstruction or queues on the pavements outside of the school which must be avoided. Please also ensure you are socially distanced when queuing to come through/entering the gates.
Only one adult per family at the end of the day, please.
All adults to wear face coverings, unless exempt, on collection please.
Classes will be dismissed from designated areas on the playground and not by the doors. Once your child(ren) has been collected, you must leave the premises immediately - no chatting or loitering please.
Anyone collecting children must follow the one way systems in place on the school site – entering through the main gate and exiting under the slope and onto London Road (with the exception of anyone needing an accessible route that will be permitted to leave through the main entrance at 3.15pm). A route for parents collecting children at the end of the day has been marked out in red on the playground; please keep to this walk way when entering/ exiting the site.
If you have a child in Year 5 or 6 and you would like them to walk home alone, please send your child to school with a letter that they can give to their class teacher.
Children walking home alone will be released at 3pm via the Ranelagh Road entrance.
The main gate (entrance 1) will be closed 3.15pm – all children must be collected by this time.
Yes. All children should return to school on Monday 8th March 2021.
