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.
