Autumn Term Return to School Arrangements for Reception Children

Please note that school will be closed to pupils on Tuesday 1st and Wednesday 2nd September 2020 for staff training. To help prevent the spread of Coronavirus we recommend that adults wear a protective face mask and we thank you for your support and cooperation.

  • Children who will be in RECEPTION from September will attend school on FRIDAY 4th SEPTEMBER from 10.00am-2.00pm. This will allow them to get used to the new staff in the unit and the new environment.  It will also allow them to receive a school lunch in the hall, ensuring that they are aware of the lunchtime routine before all other children return.
  • With effect from Monday 7th September 2020 – To prevent bubbles from crossing as much as possible, we will be staggering drop off and collection times for each class for the foreseeable future.  However, to make this as simple for parents as possible, siblings can be dropped off as a group and collected as a group if required.   Reception children will be dropped off at school at 9.00am and collected at 3.00pm. Reception children will be dropped at the early years’ gate, and social distancing measures must be adhered to.
  • Siblings of Reception children can then be dropped at the main playground gate and will be escorted to their new class by their teacher


To support working parents, we will be offering a free wraparound care service from 7:30am-5.00pm on both Thursday 3rd and Friday 4th September.  There will be limited places available to maintain bubbles, and these will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.  Please only request these places if absolutely necessary, and contact the school office as soon as possible no later than Tuesday 1st September 2020..
