As we continue to follow the advise and recommendations of DfE, Health and State Government at this stage we are still keeping the number of adults on our school site to a minimum. This means that families will need to continue dropping and collecting their children at the gates; this is consistent with other schools in our partnership.
We are however concerned for the safety and well-being of our students, particularly as they leave our school grounds. We share the concerns raised by families and community regarding the number of adults congregating at the gates. We would like to remind you that adults need to maintain social distance of at least 1.5m and it is the responsibility of the adults to ensure that our children can arrive and leave our school safely.
It is also difficult for our staff to maintain their own safety and help students locate their parents when so many adults are crowding. We suggest families spread further along the footpath and use both sides of the road.
To facilitate this staff will continue to walk our Receptions to the middle gate on Parsons Road.
We would like to thank you for your understanding.
The Leadership Team.
