School Reopening Update-January 2021

Dear Parents and Carers,


School will reopen tomorrow morning for the start of Term 3 and we are very much looking forward to seeing everyone. Ahead of our return, I would like to highlight some systems and procedures that we already implemented last term but would like to reiterate once again to ensure maximum amounts of safety for all.


You can help us to stay as safe as possible by ensuring the following;

  • Do not mix with other household bubbles outside of school (this is a requirement of Tier 4)
  • Wear masks/face coverings at all times on drop off and collection (unless you are exempt)
  • When dropping off or waiting for children at the school gates, remember to maintain at least 2m distance from others
  • Leave the school site as soon as you have collected or dropped off your children
  • Communicate with staff via phone or email unless absolutely essential
  • Remember to stick to the staggered collection and drop off times you have been allocated (try not to arrive too early-the gates will not open any earlier than 8.45am)
  • Ensure only 1 parent per drop off and collection each day


Other points for consideration;

  • Please be aware that the school is kept well ventilated and now that temperatures have dropped again more consistently, please make sure your child is dressed warmly
  • Keep your child at home if they or anyone in your house develops symptoms until you have a test result which we will then ask you to share with us-if negative, then a return to school can be planned. If the test result is positive, then we will need to have further discussions about the next steps.
  • Please make sure that we have the correct contact details so that you are able to come and collect your child asap if they are displaying any symptoms. Please let us know of any changes to your contact details as soon as possible.
  • Please remember to let the school office know if you are unable to collect your child as normal and who will be collecting
  • If your child needs to engage with home learning for any reason, please ensure that this learning is completed each day. Every lesson we teach flows into the next lesson and if one part of that sequence is missed, then it makes it very difficult for children to keep up. We will follow up any instances where parents choose not to engage with home learning-staff ensure that high quality home learning is online (via TEAMs) each morning that a child is absent due to Covid-19 and all work should be completed in the Maths and English homework books that have been sent home and should remain at home. The lessons placed online are the lessons that the child will miss from that day.


I know that all of the media speculation and the rising case numbers are incredibly worrying. As always, you have our absolute assurances that we will do everything we possibly can to ensure the health and safety of the children and staff in school every day. Should you need to discuss any element of the return to school with us, please feel free to email. As always, you have the email addresses of school staff and we are happy for you to send any messages directly to us.


I am very much looking forward to seeing you all in the morning for Term 3 and the start of the Spring Term.


Best Wishes,


Sam Eden
