Update regarding wider school opening to more pupils
As previously communicated, further to discussions this week with the Full Governing Body and Local Authority we are unable to open to more pupils from the 1st June.
We aim to implement our plan, as previously shared, from the 8th June 2020.
We understand that this decision may not be as hoped for but please be assured we are working tirelessly to ensure the very best for all involved. We are grateful for your patience and understanding at this time.
Please continue to send in evidence of your key worker status to the school office, as previously requested.
Also, a polite reminder to have inhalers etc ready to give to school in a named, sealed bag please.
Finally, please remember to have a named water bottle ready for your child/ren due to attend along with signed confirmation about walking home/collection arrangements.
We would be grateful that scooters and bikes are taken away by parents/carers and are not stored on the school site during the day.
Many thanks for your understanding at this challenging time.
Personal hygiene is the most important way we can tackle COVID-19, especially washing hands more; and the catch it, bin it, kill it strategy for those with coughs and sneezes.
Wash your hands more often for 20 seconds with soap and hot water.
In addition to handwashing before eating and after sneezing, you should also wash hands after using toilets and after travelling on public transport.
Please help us in sharing simple and effective hand hygiene messages:
The e-Bug project is led by Public Health England and has a dedicated webpage for learning resources on hand washing and respiratory hygiene.
Resources are currently available for KS1, KS2 and KS3:
