This page is a work-in-progress and repository of information related to the wider opening of school for all pupils in September.
In September we will operate as two distinct ‘SUPER-BUBBLES’, which will not mix. Staggered start and finish times will reduce the risk of exposure at either end of the school day. A one way system will exist within the school buildings. A staggered lunchtime will reduce the pressure on the playground, but if required, we will ‘zone’ our playground. The older pupils have the flexibility to access the field for lunch and play in fine weather.
Reception – Class 1
Year 1 – Class 1 or Class 2
Year 2 – Class 2
Years 3 & 4 – Class 3
Years 5 & 6 – Class 4
SPECIAL AND TEMPORARY ARRANGEMENTS
School dinners / catering
We have taken the decision to go ‘sandwiches only’ from day 1 (Thursday 3rd September) until the end of Term 1 (23rd October), unless the restrictions forcing schools to operate ‘bubbles’ significantly change. All those entitled to free school meals (FSM) (including ‘universal FSM for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2) will be able to request a free packed lunch from Caterlink, the school caterers. This clear-cut decision makes simple the staffing difficulties I wrote about previously and reduces risk still further by eliminating the need for a shared dining hall. Children will eat in their own classroom.
