Dear Parents / Carers / Families of Y6, Y1 and Reception,
If you have not already done so, please complete the data capture form for return to school next week (it was embedded in the letter and was easy to miss).
If you have already decided not to send your child back in, please ignore this email.
IF YOU HAVE ALREADY FILLED IN THE FORM PLEASE DO NOT COMPLETE IT AGAIN.
We have had a lot of questions today regarding returning to school, here are the answers to a few we have had this morning -
Should my child wear school uniform?
Wherever possible, yes. If they no longer fit into certain items they can come in casual clothes - nothing expensive as we all know what black holes schools are for children's belongings.
Will my child be with their teacher?
We cannot guarantee your child will be with their teacher, but we will try to keep the children with a known adult wherever possible.
Will my child be with their friends?
We will try to make sure that they are with someone they are friendly with.
When does all this start?
6W, 1W and RW will be in school on Mondays and Tuesdays -
22nd and 23rd June
29th and 30th June
6th and 7th July
13th and 14th July
6R, 1R and RR will be in school on Thursdays and Fridays -
25th and 26th June
2nd and 3rd June
9th and 10th July
16th and 17th July
What is happening with school dinners?
School dinners will be provided - picnic style - and the children will eat in their pods.
Benefit related FSM who are in receipt of FSM vouchers should bring in a packed lunch.
Universal FSM (all children in Reception and Y1) can have a school lunch as normal
All other children who wish to have a school lunch should make payment on Parent Pay.
Should my child wear a mask / PPE?
The guidance from central government is that children should not wear masks or PPE for school.
Will staff be wearing PPE?
Only for intimate care and some more extreme first aid incidents.
If my child is already in school as a key worker, can they change to a Year Group Pod?
Yes, they can change pod, but THEY CANNOT CHANGE BACK.
Any other questions don't hesitate to ask.
PLEASE FILL IN THE ABOVE FORM - THIS WILL REALLY HELP US ORGANISE THE CHILDREN INTO THE RIGHT PODS.
