Returning to school

Please read the letter I have sent via email to all Year 1 families with lots of important information about our return to school. Below is some key information from the letter:


From 22nd June Year 1 will be returning to school in 2 ‘bubbles’. One “bubble” with Ms Cummins in the Year 1 classroom (entering school through the gate to left of the village hall) and another “bubble” with Mrs Freeman (am) and Mrs Cowell (pm) in the Sunshine Room (through the main gate).

 School will be operating revised opening and closing hours (to minimise contact and aid social distancing).  The following start and finishing times will apply:

  • Please remind your child that they should wash their hands before they come to school and as soon as they get home.


  • Parents may not enter the classrooms and must please adhere to 2 meters distancing from other parents. We ask that one adult brings their child to school, that you do not gather in groups and that you leave the school premises as soon as possible.



  • It will not be possible to enter any area of the school without prior agreement. Markers will be on the floor at the main entrance of the Junior site to remind people where to stand if waiting to enter the building. No one is to enter the building if they are displaying any symptoms of coronavirus.


  • Please send your child into school in school uniform where possible. Government guidance states that clothing worn to school should be washed at the end of each day to reduce the risk of virus transmission. They should not wear watches, bracelets or rings to allow for full hand washing. They must wear shoes that they can put on/take off and fasten independently e.g. if they are unable to tie their laces, they must wear lace-less shoes. Long hair should be tied back



  • Each “bubble” will have a separate toilet and basin and a dedicated outside play area. Lunch will be eaten in the classroom with a packed lunch provided by the kitchen. Each “bubble” will have a PE lesson on a Friday and children should wear their PE kit on that day.


  • Your child will have their own table in the class with a tray of stationery, books and place for their water bottle. The children will be seated two metres apart. Your children should not bring in their school bag, pencil cases, PE kit, toys/play equipment, sunglasses, sun-cream or handsantiser. Sun-cream should be applied before school and wear a hat on sunny day.



  • The school kitchen will resume providing a universal free school meal for all pupils attending in R and Y1.  This meal will be a packed lunch, in line with DfE guidance. If your child usually has a school meal but you would prefer to provide your own packed lunch, please let Mrs Carroll know, so the kitchen staff are only preparing what is required.  Any packed lunch provided from home must be in a disposable bag. 


  • Teachers will not be available for face to face contact but are always contactable via email.


We look forward to welcoming you back to school.


Mrs Cummins, Mrs Hughes, Mrs Saxton, Mrs Freeman and Mrs Cowell.
