Please find below the latest risk assessment documents, updated in line with the advice from the DfE and the Local Education Authority. Please note that the management of cases is now a separate risk assessment.
The document below gives more detail for the teaching of sport in school this term. It has been completed with Paul Colbeck from ProCoach who teaches PE on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Please click below to see the risk assessments in place for after school clubs. Each club is keeping children within their extended school pod. Children will be kept socially distanced (2m) as far as possible.
Multi skills with Mr Colbeck and art club with Mrs Godbold are operating using the school’s risk assessment – please see below.
Letter for parents 4.9.20
There has been lots in the media over the last couple of weeks about children returning to school in September. The government have made it clear that all children attending school is a national priority and we are really looking forward to welcoming everyone back from the 7th September.
Key things to remember;
School starts on the 7th September for all children in years 1 – 6. Start days and times have been sent to Reception children’s parents separately.
Arrival times and collection times have changed slightly since July – check out the “Full opening poster” below for details.
Please say goodbye on the playground if you can.
Each class has it’s own entrance and exit – if you are Eagles or Swallows – remember your classroom has changed!
Come to school in PE kit on PE days – Tuesdays for R and KS1, Fridays for KS2.
Hot lunches will be available as normal. KS1 children need to bring a snack for the first few days until fruit delivery resumes.
All children need their own pencil case and a pair of outdoor shoes or wellies to be kept in school.
Enjoy the end of the holiday and see you on the 7th!
Updates from Government – 29.8.20
At the moment there is no suggestion that primary aged children should wear face coverings in school. We continue to monitor the guidelines on this, including whether there are circumstances when staff should wear face coverings. We also continue to work to ensure that our decision making is in line with other local schools. At the moment, our policy remains in line with the government guidelines – that it is not necessary for staff to wear face coverings. This may change as the situation unfolds. If this happens we will let you know.
The government clarified on the 27th September what will happen in school in the event that there is a confirmed case in school amongst children and staff, or in the event of a local lock-down due to a rise in cases. This information can be found below.
