IMPORTANT HOME TIME REMINDER 

Home time collections have been difficult throughout the pandemic, as we have limited school grounds and we are directly on a main road. I have had concerns raised by parents and staff and have tried to work with everyone to find a solution. However, this remains an issue. I am proposing another system and need everyone to co-operate if it is to be successful in an attempt to keep everyone safe. 

 

Please look at the times your children will finish school- if you have more than one child, I implore you to collect them together at the LATEST time. This will stop children, who have been kept apart all day, running around and mixing in the playground with others whilst waiting for their siblings. It should also reduce the number of parents on the playground and so reduce the risk of transmission. 

 

The school gates will open at 2:55 for those parents who are collecting their child first; as they leave, the next group of parents should come onto the playground. Please stand at a social distance from each other and only one adult should collect their child. You must wear a mask on school grounds- if you are exempt, let me know and I will bring your child to you at the gate. An additional ‘exit only’ gate will be available at the end of the day at the far end of the playground at home time.

We will try this new system until we break for Easter and then review it. Any problems or suggestions to improve things, please let us know!

Thank you for your continued support,
