Dear Parents and Carers,
School will be re-opening to all pupils starting from Monday 8th March - we have all control measures for COVID-19 transmission management in place and our risk assessment has been assured by Coventry City Council officers as safe to open.
The playground gates will be open from 8.30am, with pupils able to go straight into classrooms from that time. Our Earlybird Breakfast Club will be running for pupils needing to arrive earlier than that - please make sure that you are booked in. Pupils can arrive up to 8.50am when the gates will close - we are doing it like this to reduce the numbers at the gates at any one time whilst allowing for siblings to come to school at the same time. Please maintain social distancing at the school gates and leave once you have dropped your child. Pupils should be in full school uniform with adequate layers to keep warm as we need to keep the windows open. Pupils should wear PE kit to school on days that they have PE as they did before.
We ask that all pupils in Key Stage 1and 2 are dropped off and go in on their own; Nursery and Reception parents are able to walk their child to the classroom, but cannot enter the building.
On arrival at school all pupils will wash their hands. Pupils will then be in classrooms that have been set up according to government guidance, and will be in phase bubbles that will not mix with other pupils. Resources will not be shared until cleaned and are for the sole use of your child whenever possible. Playtimes and lunchtimes will be staggered so that bubbles do not mix, and lunches will be eaten in the classrooms for most pupils. The children will choose their school lunch from a special menu, with hot and cold choices.
Parents may collect pupils from classroom doors from 2.45pm onwards; pupils who walk home alone (only permissable in Year 5/6) will need a note provided and will be dismissed at 3pm via the side gate. Again we ask that parents socially distance at gates or doors, and leave the school site and surrounding area as soon as pupils are collected. All pupils should be collected by 3pm. Parents should wear masks on the school site.
There cannot be any After School Clubs to begin with, but Staylate will be running for pre-booked pupils - ask at the Office for details and to book.
If you have any queries or concerns please don't hesitate to contact me - email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the school.
