The School Day

Drop off & Pick Up during COVID-19

Due to COVID-19 we have put in place measures to ensure the safety of our school community as we fully open.

We ask that pupils are dropped off or picked up by only one accompanying adult.

Parents / carers will not be permitted to enter the school building or gather in groups within or outside of the school premises.

Where possible please leave your child at the gate with a member of staff and do not enter the playground.

Breakfast Club – 7:45am drop off. Please buzz for access via the gate at the main entrance to the school where you will be instructed to send you child(ren) to the next entrance.

Nursery – entrance will be via the Nursery Gate. Please support the social distancing guidance on school grounds when walking to and from Nursery.  

 For further information regarding COVID-19 please see the Handbook for Parents/ Carers under COVID-19.

Children have a mix of carpet-sessions and free-flow / pupil focus sessions throughout the day.

Carpet sessions are where we will do some short bursts of whole class teaching such as phonics, shared writing or number and of course we always have story times!

In free-flow sessions children can access different areas of learning inside and outside taking opportunities to follow their interests, learn independently and develop their personal and social skills.

During free-flow sessions adults will also work with individuals and small groups, teaching new concepts and developing understanding through close observation and questioning.
