September 2020 Update
Protective Measures / System of Controls
We want to get school life ‘back to normal’. All the new routines are quickly becoming established. The planned actions we have taken are designed to reduce the risk to children and adults and create a safe environment by reducing the number of contacts children have with other children and adults. These include changes to classroom organisation, staggered entrance / exit / playtimes / lunchtimes, increased cleaning, establishing good hygiene practices and a range of other actions.
The very most important action we can all take is that anyone connected with the school does not attend school if they, or a member of their household, have suspected symptoms of Covid-19. If you do suspect that someone might have Covid-19 then please contact school immediately and follow this guidance:
Stay at home guidance:
How to book a test:
You must inform school if you have a concern about your child’s or a family member’s health.
Staggered Start / Finish Times
The new routines at the Shaw Road South and Green Street entrances are working well. However, there has been some overcrowding at the school gate on Meyer Street at the end of the day.
In order to make it as safe as possible outside school please:
- remember to maintain social distancing
- drop-off with only 1 adult per family
- do not drive or park on Shaw Road South or Meyer Street
- do not park on double yellow lines or the zigzag markings
- please consider the residents of Shaw Road South and leave their pathways free
- keep the children safe by not waiting on the road
Changes for Year 1 /2 classes on Meyer Street
We have been in touch with our local councilor and the Traffic Management and Health and Safety teams from SMBC to come up with a solution for Meyer Street.
Following a meeting this morning with the Health and Safety team we began a trial of a one-way pickup system for Year 1 / 2 in the Infant playground.
Parents of children in Year 1 / 2 only (Chestnut Class – Ms. Ingham + Miss Best / Cherry Class – Miss Bayley / Cedar Class – Mrs. Cronshaw) are now able to come on to the playground for pickup at the end of the day. Each day Chestnut class will come out first, then Cherry Class and then Cedar Class.
Children must not use the climbing frame in the playground or the picnic benches. As soon as you have collected your child please leave the school site.
There will be no change to the morning drop-off arrangements.
