Dear Parents We have all been working hard over the summer to make sure school is a safe place to be. We really need your help to keep your children safe so here are a few reminders.

Breakfast Club - Breakfast club starts at 8.15. Children will be in bubbles. So that we can keep the children in bubbles we are only offering breakfast. There will be no dodgeball, football or ICT.

You must book a place for breakfast club via the school website –( PARENTS – School Food Provision – Breakfast Club)

You must pay for breakfast club by parent pay. We cannot take cash.

Dropping off  

We need to make sure that we do not have large numbers gathering in the playground.

The cloakroom doors open at 8.40, you can bring your child to school between 8.40 and 9.00.

Only one parent must drop off.

Line up on the marked lines at least 1 metre apart.

Please leave your child at the school gate if you feel they can make their own way to their cloakroom.

Please leave the school grounds straight away once you have dropped your child off.

Water bottles 

Please send your child with a filled water bottle with their name each day.

If you need to buy a water bottle, you can do this using Parent Pay. Your child can tell their teacher that they have paid for a water bottle when they arrive at school and a member of staff will collect one for them.

Parent Pay

We can no longer accept cash due to Coronavirus.

If you have not already done so you will need to sign up for Parent Pay. You will need to give us an email address so that we can send you an activation code. You can find instructions on our website. (PARENTS- Parent Pay )

Picking up

Only one parent to pick up.

Please wait on the marked area outside your child’s classroom and keep at least 1 metre apart.

Please be patient so that we can keep everyone safe.

Speaking to the teachers

Unfortunately at the moment we cannot allow parents into the school building. If you need to speak to a teacher about your child please could you telephone the school office on 01274 493543 or email the office on , if a member of the admin team cannot help you they will ask your child’s teacher to contact you. Please try not to speak to the staff on the doors in the morning as this may cause congestion. Senior leaders will be available in the playground each morning to help you with any problems you have.

During this time we will be using the website a lot to communicate with you, so save it in your favourites and remember to look at it regularly.
