Week 2 – 09.09.2020 – Updates for parents and carers

Dear parents and carers,
I can’t quite believe it’s nearly a week since pupils returned. I am really proud of the way your children have adapted to the new systems and procedures – they are a real credit to you.
Entry into school is going really well with children joining their class lines swiftly and confidently.
We have had to tweak a few things to ensure end of day release is smooth – especially at the lower playground exits. However, on the whole, this is going well and we thank you for following the procedures of waiting in class lines until staff call your children.
Children will leave classrooms at 3p.m and will join the appropriate playgrounds.
The areas for waiting, especially at the lower playground, do not allow for much distancing among adults. As you wait for your children alongside other adults and staff, we therefore request that you wear a face mask/covering.

Parent welcome meetings.
Every teacher will invite parents to an online meeting to share information about class routines and learning expectations for this term.
All meetings will take place via video conferencing (invites to follow) in the next two weeks. Foundation Stage1 meetings will take place once all new pupils are settled into school. Miss Downes will send invitations at a later date. If you aren’t able to join a meeting, the associated resources and information will be shared on ClassDojo pages.

Thank you for your continued support.

Kindest regards


Julie Armitage
