Dear Parents and Carers,
 
I would like to start with a big thank you to all of my staff for their dedication and passion for providing such high-quality remote learning for your children along with their daily, somewhat more detailed feedback. They truly are working over and above juggling working from home, supporting their own children and undertaking teaching in school for the now six bubbles of critical key worker and vulnerable children. I would also like to thank you as parents and carers for supporting your children with their learning and persevering through these challenging times. It is greatly appreciated and remember you are doing a great job! I enjoy seeing the children’s work and reading your lovely comments. Thank you.
 
As we now have six bubbles in school, we have had to make some changes in order to minimise the mixing of different children and families in accordance with our ongoing revision of our risk assessment. Due to our increase in numbers of children, parents and staff on site daily, the bubbles will now be as shown in the table below along with their start and finish times. Please can I also ask that only one parent/carer come onto the school site to drop off and pick up your child from school and that you arrive promptly in time for the class doors to open, and leave the site promptly once you have dropped your child off. Please can I also ask that you do wear a face covering and adhere to the 2m social distancing rule in order to limit transmission as much as possible. If your child is bringing a scooter to school please can they walk it onto the school site and park it in the designated scooter bays – for year 2 in the quiet area by the main fire gates, for year 1 outside the classrooms by Starfish class and Turtle Class, and for Year R in the bay opposite the Year R gate.
