COVID-19 Re-Opening Organisational Plan - Children of Key Workers and Reception Children
To help share what school will be like to our children, please take a look at the following video that shares the school routines in child-friendly language.
The government has set out that Key Workers, vulnerable and Reception children are to be prioritised which means, regrettably, we are currently unable to reopen for children in Year 1 or Year 6, unless they are the children of key workers.
There are several reasons for this decision including the need for adequate staffing and adequate classroom space to ensure our school is ‘COVID secure’. Furthermore, due to larger than anticipated Reception numbers, we will have to operate our one Reception Bubble on a two week rotation (one week in / one week out).
Our 4 bubbles are as follows:-
Children will not be returning to school as they previously knew it and it will look and feel different for them, however staff will work together to make the ‘new normal’ feel just as welcoming and secure as it always did
Before/After School Entry/Exit Procedures
There will be a one-way staggered system to enter and leave the school site.
Only one parent / carer may accompany the child to school and hand them over to staff at the allocated drop off point for their ‘bubble’ maintaining a 2m distance. Brief messages can be relayed but anything more must be done by phoning the school office once back home.
Parents must not gather at entrance gates or enter the site without a pre-arranged appointment.
Children MUST arrive at these times to minimise social contact with other bubbles. Latecomers will not be admitted.
If any children have an appointment during the day, they cannot attend school that day.
As children enter the school in the morning temperatures will be taken using a non-invasive thermometer which points to the forehead and does not contact the skin. Any child with a temperature above 37.5 degrees will be sent home to be monitored by you. Please do share with your children that Mr Locke and Mr Ross will be at the entrance with gloves and mask on to take their temperature.
Lunchtimes and Playtimes
First aid equipment will be available in each classroom. Staff will provide minor first aid to any child who requires it within the ‘bubble’. Protective equipment, apron, gloves and a mask, will be worn when first aid is administered.
Children who intentionally do not follow strict rules will be given two warnings. If they continue to deliberately disobey the strict rules on social distancing and or hygiene routines, then the leadership team may ring parents and that child may be sent home.
