Welcome back! Our value this term is Caring. Breakfast and After school clubs are now open.
I am so proud of our children.
They have returned to school so positively and have adapted to the new changes with staggered breaks and lunches and bubble distancing brilliantly. We had a whole school virtual meet this afternoon and it brought a tear to my eye to see them altogether again, even if it was on a screen.
I think it was a bit of a shock for some to get back into a routine after lockdown and the summer so a restful weekend is needed before we have our first full week back.
Breakfast and after school clubs start next week. We are delighted to be able to offer this again but, because of the changes due to Covid, I need to respectfully remind you that both have to be pre-booked and pre- paid with only an 8:00 am drop off time for Breakfast Club and two pick up times of 5:00 and 5:30 for After School Club. This is because staff will need to come to the gate to collect and deliver children and we have split both clubs into four different areas across the school to enable as much bubble distancing as possible as per our risk assessment.
A huge thank you to everyone for not driving up to the school. It is very busy at the gate and next week our Nursery and Reception children also start back so it will be even busier. We also have the addition of the taxis that drop off our cirb children. For that reason, I have some polite requests:
Please do not arrive earlier than your first appointed time
As soon as the children have been dropped off/collected, please move away from the school
If you need to talk to the teacher at the end of the day, please wait until all the children in the class have been safely delivered to parents
If you miss your morning time slot, you will need to wait with your children until after 9:00 am and then we will arrange for staff to pick your child up. Please emphasise to your child that they will not be in trouble for being late.
All of these requests are to keep our children, staff and you and safe as possible. Thank you for your support
