Dear Parents and Carers
Happy New Year and welcome back to the Spring term. We would like to inform you that we are planning to open as normal on Tuesday 5th January 2021 and to also make you aware of a new safety measure we will now be conducting.
To further protect children and staff we are introducing temperature testing at the start of each day. This will begin on Tuesday 5th January. Children will have their temperature taken when they arrive at the school gate and should your child measure a raised temperature, you will be asked to take them home. Please ensure your child is aware this will take place in the morning so they are prepared for this new safety measure. Staff will also be doing this on their arrival to school.
The school will continue with a frequent timetable for hand washing throughout the day. Quality hand washing routines will be vital and so please ensure the children have washed their hands before coming to school and wash them again as soon as they arrive home. We would also encourage all children to have their own alcohol free sanitiser in school each day, which will be used at regular intervals alongside what we have in school.
As the weather is now much colder, please ensure your child brings a warm coat, jumper/cardigan and hat/scarf to school each day. It may also be useful for the children to wear a vest or undergarment to also accommodate the change in temperature. We must continue allowing air flow through our classrooms at various intervals and therefore do anticipate classrooms to be colder than normal.
Please remember the one-way system for dropping off/ collecting children and also the staggered collection times. We also ask that parents and carers wear masks/visors during the drop off and collection times please.
If you have any questions, please email the school office and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
Thank you for your understanding.
