Safety Measures in school
Essential measures include
Drop off & Collection timings
Changes to drop offs and collections can be seen below.
Please use the drop off and collection times for the year group your child will be in during the 2020-2021 academic year.
For example, children who were in Year 1 last year should use the Year 2 timings from Monday 7th September, even though these children will return to their Year 1 classroom for the first two weeks of the school year.
Siblings should be dropped off at the earliest time together and collected at the latest time.

|Year R||Staff car park vehicle gate||9:15 am||3:10 pm|
|Year 1||Staff car park vehicle gate||8:45 am||3:00 pm|
|Year 2||Staff car park vehicle gate||8:55 am||3:20 pm|
|Year 3||Staff car park vehicle gate||9:05 am||3:30 pm|
|Year 4||Field gate at top of path from parent car park||8:45 am||3:10 pm|

Engaging with the NHS Test and Trace process
Anyone who displays symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) can and should get a test.
Tests can be booked online through the NHS testing and tracing for coronavirus website, or ordered by telephone via NHS 119 for those without access to the internet.
The most important symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of any of the following:
Parents/carers understand and will need to be ready and willing to:

Attendance & Uniform
School attendance will be mandatory again from the beginning of the autumn term. This means from that point, the usual rules on school attendance will apply, including:
All children will be required to be back in full school uniform (no ties) from September. Children should come to school in their PE kit on the days they have PE.
Remote Learning Arrangements
If a family does not have access to a device that connects to the Internet, the school will support them to access one, if remote learning becomes necessary.
Individiual absences due to self-isolation
Children who are well enough to work are expected to access class English and Maths lessons daily. This will help children to still get quality first teaching and stay on track with the curriculum despite not being able to attend school.
Your child’s class teacher will send out a Zoom video conference link and password, as well as the timings of their Maths and English lessons. The same Zoom link and password will be used for all remote lessons.
This will enable your child to access the input of these lessons and have full interactivity with the teacher and class through a home laptop or other smart device. The input of the lesson, as well as discussions in the classroom will be accessible and then the link will be closed down when it comes to the working section of the lesson to allow the child to complete the task(s) set, using Google Classroom.
For safeguarding reasons, the computer in the classroom will be at the front of the room facing only the teacher and any children in the classroom will not be able to be seen.
Work for other subjects will be set through Google Classroom as usual and your child’s class teacher will send home details of how to complete this work.
Free School Meals
If your child is entitled to Free School Meals (not the Universal Free School Meals available to all children in Years R,1 and 2), then your child will be provided with a packed lunch daily. This can be collected from the school – please let the school know whether you require this packed lunch, to avoid wastage.
Bubble closures & whole-school closures
The school successfully used Google Classroom as an online classroom environment during the first school closures. This will be used again, in the same manner, to allow all children to continue their education. Teachers will continue to follow the planned curriculum during any future partial or full school closures.
