School reopening in September 2020

Essential school reopening information

We’re excited to welcome our pupils back to school on Wednesday September 9, 2020, but wanted to remind everyone of some key safety measures which we all need to be aware of in order to keep everyone safe and healthy.

  • Anyone displaying symptoms of COVID-19, must not enter the school site. Everyone must be ready and prepared to book a test if they have symptoms and to share the results of the test with school. You will also need to be prepared to provide details of people that you have been in contact with, if you or your family display symptoms.

  • We have increased our cleaning capacity to ensure that surfaces, handles and other priority spaces are regularly sanitised throughout the day.

  • Children will be placed into ‘bubbles’ and allocated constant adults that will work solely within these groups.

  • Children should bring the bare minimum onto the premises each day e.g. packed lunch, named water bottle (containing water please), PE kit, book bag.

  • One parent to drop off and pick up per family.

  • School attendance is compulsory with all children expected to return.

  • Parents will not be able to enter the school building.

  • Parents must socially distance from each other on school site.

Guidance on what to do if your child is poorly

We understand it’s concerning for parents/carers when a child is poorly – especially given the current circumstances. Together with the latest COVID-19 health and safety advice, we’ve put together a flowchart to help guide you through some questions if your child is poorly and you’re unsure if they should attend school.
