September 2020 Drop off Times

Dear Parents

Today the children met their teachers for the new academic year starting on the 3rd September 2020. We have completed risk assessments to introduce safety measures and you will have noticed that with  the one-way system for drop off/ collection ensures there is a flow of traffic with little gathering or crossing over. We will also have the following from September 2020:

  • Classes remain in bubbles with no large gatherings over 30 in confined, indoor spaces
  • Lunches will be held in classrooms with food delivered to the classroom by the class lunch time carer. Every class has a dedicated carer
  • Classes have dedicated play areas and times at break and lunch. The adventure play area is sprayed with sanitising cleaner
  • There are hand cleaning stations and cleaning products to clean all areas and equipment used. Children will wash their hands before and after activities, entering/ exiting the building and eating. They will have their own pens and pencils
  • Windows and doors are open and rooms are well ventilated
  • Children will be seated in rows and not in groups opposite each other
  • There will be staggered drop off and collection times to minimise the numbers of adults coming into contact with each other. The times are in the table below

Comprehensive and up to date information will be sent out on the 1st September. I trust you have enough information at the moment to plan your drop off and collections at school.  Breakfast and After School Club will start up in September.  Return to school for the children will be in full school uniform and we will be back to compulsory attendance in September 2020.

I would like to thank all parents for their support during the last five months. These have been difficult times for all of us and we look forward to the holidays and then returning to normal in September. I would also like to thank the staff at Churchend School who have had to work creatively and very hard at keeping the children safe at school and keeping the learning going.

I hope everyone manages to get some holiday time or down time over the next 6 weeks.

Kind regards

Richard Pearse
