Pupils will return to school on Wednesday 7th September 2022.
What time will my child’s school day be?
All pupils will start at 8.45am and finish at 3.15pm.
Children may ride their bike or scooter to school and these can be left in the area at the side of our Reception classrooms. We will continue with our one-way system; the wearing of face coverings on school grounds is at your discretion.
What will my child wear for school?
All pupils will be expected to wear school uniform as normal. The only difference to this is that on the day that your child has PE we are asking that they come to school in their PE kit (proper school PE kit expected). PE days are as follows:
Miss McIntyre – Tuesday
Miss Poulsen - Friday
What will my child need for school?
We are continuing to limit the equipment that the children need to bring to school so they will only need a packed lunch (if provided by home), a water bottle (we are not able to offer these in school) and their book bag (Reception – Year 3) or a drawstring bag (Years 4 - 6).
When will break times and Lunchtimes be?
Primary schools will no longer be expected to keep pupils in bubbles. We have therefore organised the children into three ‘groups’. Reception will operate as one group, Years 1-3 as another and Years 4-6 as another. These children will have their break times and lunchtimes together as follows.
Start of day
End of day
11.30am – 12.30pm
Years 1 - 3
10.15am – 10.35am
12.00pm – 1.00pm
Years 4 - 6
10.50am – 11.05am
12.30pm – 1.30pm
At lunchtime, children will eat in their classroom (apart from Reception and Year 1 who will use the dining room) and will then have 30 minutes outside.
What will my child eat?
Your child may either bring a packed lunch from home or order a hot meal. Our three-week menu will continue and meals are available to order via ParentPay. The meals are free for children in Reception, Years 1 and 2 as well as for children eligible for Free School Meals and will be charged at £2.34 for any other child who would like to order one. All children must bring their own water bottle to school as we are unable to offer these.
Is my child expected to attend every day?
Your child must come to school in September and the usual rules will apply, including:
How will Before or After School care work?
Wrap around care will be offered from 7.45am – 8.45am and 3.15pm - 5.30pm.

This will operate from 7:45am. Children can be dropped at any point up to the start of the school day and will be taken to class at the appropriate time. The cost of this facility is £4.00 per day and there is no need to book (parents may make payments on the day or can pre-book a child). Children will be provided with a drink and a light snack.

Will my child be expected to self-isolate?
Children should continue to stay at home if they have symptoms of Covid or a positive test result.
From 16th August, children under the age of 18 years old will no longer be required to self-isolate if they are contacted by NHS Test & Trace as a close contact of a positive COVID-19 case. Instead, children will be contacted by NHS Test & Trace, informed they have been in close contact with a positive case and advised to take a PCR test. They only need to isolate if they test positive.
Our teachers and staff will continue to keep on testing twice a week even if fully vaccinated.
How will the school promote safe and hygienic practices?
We will continue to reinforce good health and hygiene such as handwashing, tissue throwing away and toilet flushing. As a school we will:
