We have recently received some updated guidance, which now advises us to strongly recommend that all Parents, Carers and Visitors wear face coverings whenever they come on to the site. THIS NEW GUIDANCE INCLUDES OUTSIDE, NOT JUST IN THE BUILDING. It is particularly important at pick-up and drop-off times, including wrap-around care.
The reason for this is that it is impossible to keep everyone two metres apart when on the school site, so we need to reduce the risk of possible infection by making this request.
Therefore, from Monday 2nd November, all Parents, Carers (or other adults responsible for bringing a child to school or collecting) and Visitors must wear face coverings when entering the school site, including outside.
We ask that anyone who is exempt from wearing a face covering should wear a printed exemption in a lanyard to show this, as would be required when entering a shop.
Can we also please ask that when dropping your child/children off you do not linger on the drive or by the green gate but leave promptly to allow other parents to safely drop off their children.
Thank you for your continued patience, understanding and support during these challenging times.
Should children be required to isolate or remain at home due to the pandemic, we will ensure that important work that they might miss will be covered by remote provision on TEAMS. All children have been allocated and are familiar with passwords to access this material. Should you have any problems or queries regarding the material that has been set, please contact the class teacher by classdojo in the first instance.
