CORONAVIRUS MEASURES and the school day

risk assessment

hygiene

Central to the safety of your child and our staff is hygiene, particularly hand hygiene. Enhanced daytime cleaning processes remain in place in school.

Children should not be sent to school if they have symptoms of COVID-19 (persistent cough; high temperature – 37.8 oC or above; a loss of sense of taste/smell) without taking a covid test. If a child is suspected to have COVID-19 symptoms in school, they will be isolated with a member of staff in the reception meeting room and parents will be contacted.

Suspected covid-19 cases

Pupils must not come into the school if they have COVID-19 symptoms, or have tested positive in the last 10 days. Anyone (pupil or staff) developing those symptoms during the school day will be sent home. They must take a card test

 

If you or your child experiences symptoms, please contact school immediately.

Remote Learning FAQs

 

Classroom and resources

Most of the time, children will be working in the regular classrooms with approximately 30 children and 2 adults in the room. The government recognise that ‘younger children will not be able to maintain social distancing, and it is acceptable for them not to distance within their group.’ 

 

Year groups will be treated as ‘bubbles’, this means that they will not routinely mix with other year groups, to reduce the risk of transmission of the virus.

 

Resources that are shared across classes (e.g. art materials / PE equipment) will be thoroughly cleaned after use and before other classes use them. We aim to leave a period of time between classes using this type of equipment to reduce any risk of infection. 

attendance

Morning Drop Off Routine / Breakfast club

The school gates will open at 8:25, class doors will open at 8:30 and close at 8:50. Lessons start at 9am.

There will be a 30 minute flexible drop-off window between 8:30 and 9am, children will stay in their classrooms for this time. There is no breakfast club in the hall, so children who arrive before 8:40am will be given toast.

Nursery, reception and Y1 will enter their classrooms directly. Y2 and 3 will use the end door, Y4-6 will use the hall door

 

Please maintain social distancing when picking up / dropping off.

 

There will be a one way system around the outside of the school building, so you will be guided to walk all the way around the school.

break time and lunch times

Break times will be staggered to reduce the number of children on the playgrounds. Children will be in year group ‘bubbles’ so will not mix with others.

end of the day pick-up

It is very important that you are on time for the collection time for your child. Please do not be early or late as this has been carefully calculated to ensure one third of our children are collected at each time.
