Welcome to
All Saints Church of England Primary School

A United and Caring Community of Learners

School Re-opening Information

Updated 13th July 2020.

Like all schools in England, All Saints is now closed to most pupils due to the health emergency caused by the Coronavirus Pandemic. Parents are requested to listen to their children read every day, and use the resources provided by school via Dojo. 

 
Our Plan for Welcoming Children Back to School

We are very much looking to welcoming back the children into school in September. In response to the ongoing issues with COVID 19 we have made a number of significant changes to keep everyone in our community as safe as possible. Outlined below are changes that will be in place:

New Class

All children have been assigned a new class from September. Please see the welcome video on dojo or the website to see your child’s new teacher.

Children will remain in their year group ‘bubbles’ throughout the school day. They will have staggered breaks and lunchtimes to ensure children to not mix with other bubbles. They will have contact with the same staff on a daily basis.

Staggered start

To help us transition your child into school we will be inviting groups of children pupils into school on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday of the week beginning 7th September to ensure that they fully understand the new systems we have set up to ensure everyone stays safe and healthy.

Please see the letter issued with reports on Tuesday, 14th July to find which day your child(ren) should attend school.

Drop off/Pick up arrangements:

Morning

We will be operating a strict one-way system for the Powell building. The gates will be clearly labelled to guide you. Please allow extra time as there will be further to walk to and from cars etc.

The gate will be opened at 8.50am and your child will be guided towards lining up. They will have their hands sprayed with special disinfecting water. This will be repeated throughout the day to maintain high levels of hygiene.

Please do not wait with your child but keep moving and exit as directed.

Afternoon

The governors have decided to extend the school day by 30 minutes on Mondays – Thursdays. At 3:30pm (Powell building) and 3.20pm (Kennion building) please enter the playground as directed. There may be a slight delay as we will manage the number of parents to keep the flow of the one-way system moving. On Fridays, this process will take place at 1.15pm (Powell building) and 1.05pm (Kennion Building).

Your child will be lined up and waiting to be picked up. Our staff will send them over to you as you are moving through the one-way system. Please keep moving so we can release children in a timely way.

We are aware that the drop off/pick up is highly regimented however, our only aim is to maximise the safety of everyone within the All Saints community. If you wish to speak with your child’s teacher or anyone in school we would like you to contact either via dojo or book a phone appoint through contacting, by phone, the main office. Again we would normally welcome parents into school but in order to allow for social distancing we will operate a system of phone contact only.

Physical Education (PE)

There will be no PE lessons in the first week. You will be advised about your child’s PE day and then we request that your child comes into school in their PE kits. This will be:

  • Black tracksuit bottoms or black leggings
  • White polo shirt or white t-shirt
  • Black trainers or pumps (If you wish your child to wear pumps please can they wear their black school shoes into school and change their footwear for PE)
  • School jumper

    We will not be asking the children to change in school as we cannot ensure social distancing.

    Attendance

    In September school attendance will again become mandatory and you are required to bring your child to school every day. If there are medical reasons, directed from your child’s doctor, for your child not to be in school please inform us as some as possible.

    We recognise there is a great deal of information in this letter. If you need any further clarification please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher through dojo or contact the school office.

    Thank you all for your continued patience and support. Stay safe and have a good summer.
