*Plans for September 2020*

date posted: 14/08/2020



We have spent many weeks planning for September. We will update you in September as we do not know whether plans will change. We have made our plans based on government and borough guidance. This is available here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/actions-for-schools-during-the-coronavirus-outbreak/guidance-for-full-opening-schools?utm_campaign=1934719_New%20guidance%20on%20getting%20all%20pupils%20back%20to%20school%20in%20September&utm_medium=email&utm_source=National%20Association%20of%20Head%20Teachers&dm_i=3OT7,15GU7,5ERH1D,42QKO,1


Key points:

  • The children will be taught in class bubbles, all staff will only be with that bubble, including lunch and break times. Children will eat in their classroom. There will be no crossing over of bubbles with adults or children. The resources will only be kept in that room and used by those children and nothing will be shared.
  • General hygiene will be of huge importance and revisited throughout the day. 
  • In the playground there will be one other class and the children will be divided so they do not cross over.
  • Year 5 and 6 will be treated as one bubble as they will be in a separate Maths and English group after the first two weeks. These parents will be informed again about this at the start of September.
  • There will be staggered times to start and finish school (see attachment)
  • Three gates will be open at 8:45 and senior management will stand at the gates as usual. Teaching assistants will be in the playgrounds until 9:30 to manage the lines and care for the children. Adults will be socially distanced at all times. You are welcome to drop your children off at 8:45 and they can walk into the playground and wait in their class lines. Parents will need to leave the gate area quickly so it does not get congested and you will need to socially distance as much as you can. The children will be collected by their teacher and taken through a designated door at a designated time so classes do not cross over. The same will happen at the end of the day.

Please see the attached sheet for more information on the start and end of the day.


We will be in contact again before September, and as ever, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Stay safe. 

Best wishes

Mr Brown
