Reopening Arrangements for 8th March

Here are is our guide for reopening to all pupils next week. 

The organisation will broadly stay the same as in the Autumn Term.  There is only a small change to drop off and collection times. 

From the 8th March, attendance is compulsory.  If you have any concerns then please contact us. 

Dropping Off and Collecting Times

Please keep to these times.  If you arrive early or late it will increase the number of people on site and make it more difficult to remain socially distanced. 

We will keep the one way system for the start and the end of the day.  Please only send one adult round to drop off /collect children and masks must be worn unless you are exempt on medical grounds.    If you need to speak to any member of staff then please do this using Class Dojo so avoiding direct contact.


The children will be expected to wear school uniform except on their PE days when they should come to school wearing their school PE Kit and trainers.  We have started to introduce a daily mile to increase outdoor activity in a fun way.  We would always encourage school shoes to be practical. However, if your child’s shoes would not be suitable to complete this then trainers may be worn. 

Class teachers will remind you of PE days in advance.


We are restarting hot lunch options and an updated menu has been sent out to you.  No pre-order is required as children will choose their option in the morning. All children now have the option of bringing in their own packed lunch and please ensure this is healthy and follows our no nuts policy.  The children will continue having staggered lunchtimes in their class bubbles to ensure social distancing is maintained. 

Covid 19 Risk assessment

We have reviewed and updated our Covid-19 Risk Assessment which can be viewed on the school website.  As in the autumn term, we will be completing increased cleaning across the school and hand hygiene will be promoted for all. 


The children will only need to bring their water bottle, packed lunch and reading book into school.  Please avoid sending in any other unnecessary bags and equipment. 

Breakfast Club

Breakfast club will restart on the 8th March.  Please contact the office if you need a place. 

After-school club

We are hoping to be able to restart After-school club following the Easter break.  We will update you with details of this later in the term.
