Autumn Term Return to School Arrangements for Year 2 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 are in Year 2 will attend school from 9.10.am-11.10am on Thursday 3rd and Friday 4th September. Parents will drop their children at the main gate, where they will be met by Mrs. Seigne.
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.
- Year 2 pupils and their older siblings will be dropped at the main playground gate at 8:50am.
- Year 2 pupils and their older siblings will be collected from the main playground gate at 2:55pm.
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..
