PLEASE READ

Dear Parents and Carers,

A big welcome back to you all after the long summer break. I hope you all had a lovely break and are ready to send your children back, ready to learn, as we embark on the new year. The staff have been busy today attending training on Safeguarding; reporting systems and getting the classrooms ready for the exciting new topics which have been carefully planned.

Over the summer, we have been working tirelessly with Greenwich to ensure that the water leak is fixed in the FS/KS1 playground, but I am saddened to report, that following numerous emails/visits the leak has not been fixed. The slope is now unfit for purpose and cannot be used, which has meant the top gate will be closed until further notice. Please read the arrangements below regarding the drop off and pick up procedures we have had to put in place to keep everyone safe.

RECEPTION:

From 8.45am, please bring your child through the main reception, where you will be shown across the playground to your child’s classroom door. Teachers and support staff will be there to support you and your child during this time.

When you come to pick up your child (Tuesday and Wednesday: 12.00noon, Thursday and Friday: 1.20pm), please come through the main reception following the same procedure as the morning.

YEAR 1:

From 8.45am, please bring your child through the bottom gate and through the first white door. If you wish, you can take your child to the classroom for the first few days to ensure they are settled. Once they are in their class, we ask all parents to leave the school through the same door.

At 3.20pm, please come through the main reception and wait in the KS1 playground, behind the wooden trellis. Staff will dismiss your children to you. If you have siblings throughout the rest of the school, we will make sure they come to the year 1 classroom so you can pick them up altogether.

YEAR 2:

Please drop off your child in the same way as in Year 1, through the first white door. Staff will be on hand to support your children to their new classroom.

At 3.20pm, please pick your child up from the KS2 playground where the teachers will dismiss the class through the following doors:

–          1st White door: Mrs Bowman/Mrs Pritchard

–          2nd White door: Mrs Wardrope

For parents who have a child in Year 1 and other siblings throughout the school: the family will ALLbe dismissed through the Year 1 classroom.

For all other children in Years 3/4/5 and 6 drop off and pick up will continue as normal.

Thank you so much for your cooperation in this on going matter. This will cause some congestion, but we are doing all we can to have the matter resolved as soon as possible so please be patient.
