Important Information For Parents

Updated 3rd November 2020

Due to the need to keep our children, parents and staff safe and healthy, we are following the Government and local guidance, which means we have changed some of the ways we operate. We therefore ask that all parents comply to the following procedures and timings: 

  

Morning Drop-offs 

  

To help comply with social distancing requirements, we have divided the school into 3 groups: 

  

Group A – Yellow Group 

Group B – Green Group 

Group C – Orange Group 

  

All children in the Powell Building have been issued with a coloured card. These should be shown on entry to the school grounds. There is no need for parents of older children (Years 4, 5 and 6) to accompany them to the playground. 

 

All adults entering school grounds should wear a face mask/face covering unless exempt. 

  

If you arrive early in a car – please wait in your vehicle (with the engine switched off please!) until the following times:

Nursery and Reception Children 

Parents of our Nursery and Reception children should contact their child’s class teachers via Dojo to find out the arrangements for their child. 

  

One Way Systems 

In order to allow parents to keep a safe social distance we ask everyone to follow our one-way systems. Please allow a little more time when dropping-off and picking up your children as you may have to walk a little further! Please do not walk back up the footpath from the Powell Building playground to the pedestrian gate on Little Horton Green. 

  

  

Keeping Safe in School 

Children will remain in their class ‘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. We have increased cleaning staff hours considerably to ensure the school is kept clean throughout the day. 

They will have their hands sprayed with special disinfecting water. This will be repeated throughout the day to maintain high levels of hygiene. 

 

What should I do if my child, or someone in my household has symptoms of COVID-19? 

If your child has symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) you must keep them at home and arrange for them to have a test. Other members of their household (including any siblings) should self-isolate for 14 days from when the symptomatic person first had symptoms. 

 

What will happen to my child if he/she develops symptoms while they at school? 

 

If your child becomes unwell with a new and persistent cough or a high temperature, or has a loss of or change in their normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia), you will be contacted and asked to collect your child and any siblings immediately. You will be advised to follow guidance for households with possible or confirmed coronavirus (COVID-19) infection, which sets out that they should self-isolate for at least 10 days and should arrange to have a test to see if they have coronavirus (COVID-19). 

 

What happens if someone in my child’s bubble is tested positive for COVID-19? 

 

The school will establish which other pupils and staff the positive case has been in close contact with whilst there was a risk of infection in school. This may be the whole bubble or just a few children/staff. All those contacts will then be asked to self-isolate for 14 days. Self-isolating children will be provided with work remotely, parents are requested to help ensure this work is completed and submitted for marking. 

 

Contacting School 

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. 

Lates 

Kennion Building  

If you are late please come to the main reception gate where you will be seen one family at a time, so please bare with us as this will take longer than usual. 

Physical Education (PE) 

Children should wear their PE kits to school on their designated PE days: 

  • 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 

  

From September school attendance has 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. 

  

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.

Head teacher
