WELCOME

School Day

Staggered  Times 

Due to the need to reduce the number of people congregating around school at drop off and pick up times, we are having two start and finish times. 

Reception Gate 

The gate will be opened at 8.50 am and the first group of children will be brought into school. The gate will be closed until 9.10 am when the second group will be brought into school. A staff member willl man the gate for 5 minutes after each start time. 

KS1
The KS1  gate is opened at 8.45 am. The first group of children will be brought into school  at 8.50 am. The second  group will be brought in at 9.10 am. Staff will leave the gates open between groups so that parents may wait if they are early. Please distance from other parents during this time. The gates will be manned for 5 minutes after the start times and then closed. Any children who arrive after these windows will need to go into school via the school office.   

KS1 have a 15 minute break in the morning - Year 1 at 10.15 am and Year 2 at 10.35 am. KS1 lunchtimes are staggered from 12 noon until 1.15 pm and the chidlren are in separate groups in the hall. Tables are sanitised between groups.  In the afternoon, they have another break of 10 minutes when they may do their daily running.

KS2 Playground Gate 
The KS2 playground gate is opened at 8.45am for Years 5 and 6.  The first group of  children will be brought into school at 8.50 am. The second group will be brought in at 9.10 am.  The gates are locked between groups. Staff will man this gate for 5 minutes after each start time. Any children arriving after this time will need to go into school via the school office. 

KS2 Car Park Gate

The KS2 car park gate gate is opened at 8.45am for Years 3 and 4.  Parents may come through this gate and wait at the hall doors. The first group of  children will be brought into school at 8.50 am. The second group will be brought in at 9.10 am.  The gates are not locked between groups so that any parents who arrive early may wait outside the hall doors.  Staff will man this gate for 5 minutes after each start time. Any children arriving after this time will need to go into school via the school office.  

KS2 children have a 15 minute break in the morning - Years 3 and 4 at 10.15 am and Years 5 and 6 at 10.35 am. Lunchtime is staggered for the children between 12 and 1 pm.  Classes have their lunch in the classrooms to avoid large groups congregating in the hall. Afternoon lessons begin at 1 pm and finish at 3.10 pm or 3.30 pm. 

There are no whole school assemblies at the moment. The Monday morning assembly will be a virtual one and the Friday afternoon 'Celebration Assembly' will take place with individual classes in their classrooms.
