8th March '21 Full Opening

Dear Parents & Carers, 

IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ CARFULLY: Full School Opening March 2021

We very much look forward to welcoming back all children and staff on Monday 8th March 2021 and are excited about helping your children re-engage with each other and their learning in school.

As before, we know you will do your best to help us deal with the mandatory measures and organisation around yourselves and your children safely entering and exiting school. PLEASE DO YOUR BEST TO HELP US KEEP OUR COMMUNITY AS COVID SAFE AS POSSIBLE SO THAT OUR SCHOOL CAN STAY OPEN FOR EVERY CHILD.

Follow instructions in this link: https://www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-tests. to collect your lateral flow tests. Twice-weekly testing of household members (not including your primary age child) will support our school to stay open. Please only report a positive result to our school office. If your child or anyone in the household develops symptoms, follow the national guidance for getting a PCR test.

You are reminded, as before, that when sending your child back to school, you will be agreeing to our Home School Agreement, Behaviour Policy and Parent & Visitor Code of Conduct.

As before, the same staggered entry and exit times we will be used (separate ‘bubbles’, not mixing with other bubbles) IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT YOUR CHILDREN ARRIVE ON TIME and LEAVE ON TIME to ensure safe transitions with no hold ups, which will cause safety issues. WE WILL BE WORKING AT CAPACITY AND LATECOMERS & LATE PICK-UPS WILL PRESENT SEVERE LOGISTICAL CHALLENGES, WHICH WILL AFFECT EVERYONE.

BEFORE MONDAY 8TH MARCH, please ensure you & child know:

  • Attendance is crucial and COMPULSORY to catching up with learning and socialising
  • ON ENTERING AND EXITING, ADHERE TO GOVERNMENT SOCIAL DISTANCING RULES – KEEP YOUR DISTANCE FROM OTHERS, MASKS FOR ADULTS ON ENTRY TO SCHOOL PREMISIS COMPULSORY UNLESS MEDICALLY EXEMPT
  • staff cannot stop to talk to parents dropping off or picking up their children (queries/messages must be dealt with by telephoning the school office)
  • ADULTS COLLECTING CHILDREN MUST BE ON THE RECORDED CONTACT LIST – any adult collecting a child who is not Mum or Dad must, on approaching the teacher, call their name, so the teacher can check the list before releasing the child (this adult must bring photo ID for verification)
  • staff cannot administer prescription medication and parents must make arrangements with the office to attend to administer

The start and finish times below ensures a safe and calm return to school for your children.

We appreciate these times may present challenges (especially for those of you with more than 1 child attending our school), but we have done our best to minimise these and we know you acknowledge that our children’s safety comes first.

Looking forward to working with you in the coming months. During these unprecedented times, we know our community will continue to show the cooperation, resilience and adaptability intrinsic to Leys Primary School and we thank you all.

 

Yours faithfully,

Leys’ Senior Management Team
