Parent Update – Friday, 4th September 2020
We hope you have had a restful summer and we are looking forward to welcoming back our school community. We understand you and your family may be feeling anxious after such a long time away, so please take time to read the Returning to Primary School FINAL August 2020 information that Haringey have prepared for parents and carers on returning to school; please pay particular attention to page 5 and the advice on ‘what happens if someone in your family isn’t feeling well’.
New times of the school day from Monday, 7th September
In July we wrote to you with the new start and finish times for the school day from Monday, 7th September. Please make a note of your child’s year group, entrance gate, start and end time.
|Nursery – Nursery Gate
|Reception – Middle Gate
|Year 1 – Job Centre Gate
|Year 2 – Main Gate
|Year 3 – Main Gate
|Year 4 – Job Centre Gate
|Year 5 – Middle Gate
|Year 6 – Middle Gate
Please note if you have siblings across 2 or more year groups, you must bring each child to the correct gate at the allocated time.
Social distance measures outside the school
Over the summer Haringey Council have installed barriers on the road outside the school to increase the pavement width to ensure social distancing by creating 2 pathways. Please follow the arrows that are directing the flow once you have dropped your child/ren at school. As the road has been narrowed to allow for the second pathway, please do NOT park outside the school to drop children off.
Haringey have created a walking map and we would ask that you park away from the school and walk with your children. The map is attached for your information.
As with the staggered start and end times for each class, we are also staggering the children’s lunches so that they are able to have their lunch safely, within their year group. If your child has a packed lunch please bring their lunch in a packed lunch box/bag, NOT in a back pack (if your child usually brings a back pack, please leave this at home). The only items your child will need every day is their book bag and their lunch box (if they have a packed lunch).
Please only bring your child’s PE kit into school on the day they have PE. We will not be keeping them in school and they should be taken home at the end of the day to be washed. A reminder of the PE kit:
White T-Shirt, dark blue or black shorts / jogging bottoms and plimsolls & PE bag
Your child will not need to bring in any class resources, these will be provided and each child will be given an individual work pack. Your child will only need to bring in their book bags every day (no back packs).
We will also provide your child with a named water bottle for when they are in school; which will be thoroughly cleaned and must remain in school.
We look forward to seeing you all on Monday, 7th September.
