New Plans for Fridays:
On Friday 25th September we will be closed to all children so that staff can prepare for the changeover to their new bubbles, and have classrooms ready to welcome their new classes, on Monday 28th September. All classrooms and equipment will be cleaned and ready to be used by children.
From 2nd October, we will be closing school to children after lunchtime every Friday until the guidance changes. Hopefully, this is a short term, temporary arrangement to cover teachers’ legislated PPA (preparation, planning and assessment) time. This is a legal requirement and within the current climate it will not be possible to organise it as we have done in the past because staff shouldn’t be crossing into each other’s bubbles, except where planned and absolutely necessary.
We will organise school so that your child will need to be picked up as soon as they have had lunch (families will be able to pick up siblings at the same time). We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause but we have a legal duty to provide this time for teachers and with current COVID arrangements this is the only way we can arrange it.
New class information will be given on Monday and transition, including meeting new teachers, will take place during the week (socially distanced).
