Changes this term

A reminder of some changes to the day for the children from our last newsletter in July. We have moved back to opening the KS1 playground gates at 8.30am each morning so children can come in and play with their friends before the bell goes promptly at 8.45am for children in Year 1-6. Parents are able to come into the playground at this time, but if you wish to speak to the teachers please organise to do this after school or make an appointment via the office. Please do not come into the school buildings and try and not catch them at 8.45am when the bell goes as the children need to go straight into classes at 8.45am to do registers for safeguarding reasons.

We have started having daily collective worship together in the hall this week and all classes are back to having lunch in the hall. We are very lucky that the layout of our building means most classes are not all using the same corridors and toilets and so we are already minimising transmission at all points during the day. We are continuing to have extra cleaning throughout the day by the wonderful Miss Jo, as the DfE guidance advises.

The updated Covid risk assessment for the Autumn term is now on the website. Any changes to the version from the summer term have been highlighted in green. Please see the link for this here: https://bit.ly/3BM77Cu
