Key Workers and Priority Pupil schooling during school closure
If you are still intending to use the school during this time of school closures can I remind you of the guidelines set out by the Government.
- Many parents working in key sectors may be able to ensure their child is kept at home. And every child who can be safely cared for at home should be;
- If it is at all possible for children to be at home, then they should be;
- Parents should also do everything they can to ensure children are not mixing socially in a way which can continue to spread the virus. They should observe the same social distancing principles as adults;
- The NSPCC states that children aged 12 and over are mature enough to be left at home alone during the day.
The reason for not attending school is that by fewer children making the journey to school, and the fewer children in educational settings, the lower the risk that the virus can spread and infect vulnerable individuals in wider society. Please bare this guidance in mind when making the decision to send your son or daughter in to school.
If after reading the Governments guidelines you meet the criteria to send your child into school, please read the following information.
- The school gates will open at 745am.
- There is no school transport.
- School will begin at 835am. Pupils should gather in the Junior Dining Room.
- Pupils do not need to wear school uniform but should follow the non uniform day guidance.
- Pupils should bring books for the lessons they would normally have on that day, plus any other resources they may need including pencil case, notebook and PE kit or equivalent.
- The kitchen will be open serving a reduced menu at break and lunch.
- School will finish at 2pm.
- All pupils must be off the site by 215pm.
- It goes without saying but any pupils showing symptoms of COVID-19 or suffering from illness should not attend.
