05/01/2021 - IMPORTANT SCHOOL INFORMATION FOR ALL PARENTS AND CARERS

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

I am writing to update you of our plans for the next few weeks.

 

I wrote to all key worker families earlier today asking to inform us if they would be requiring a place at school during lockdown. Can I please ask that if you are able to have your children at home please support by keeping them at home.  

 

Google Classroom will be open from tomorrow morning. Class teachers will be asking children to register on Google Classroom each day. Three tasks will be set daily and children will continue to have access to Bug Club, Mathletics and Times Tables Rockstars. Staff will endeavour to review work online but will also be teaching the children of key workers.

 

Information for the children of key workers

 

The school day will be the same as the autumn term:

 

Key Stage Two children and their Key Stage One siblings will start at 8:50am and finish at 3:30pm.

 

Key Stage One children will start at 9:10am and finish at 3:05pm.

 

Please continue to park up on the car park playground and wait in your car until signalled for the children to come in.

 

Breakfast Club will be open from 7:45am. We would appreciate advanced notice so we have an idea of numbers.

 

After School Club will be open until 4:30pm.

 

Please can children bring in PE kit for planned lessons.

 

We also ask that children bring in as little as possible. A warm coat, hat, gloves and a water bottle.

 

Cooked dinners will continue to be available. If you have not ordered for this week please send your child in with a packed lunch. It is not too late to order for next week. Please order by the end of Wednesday to ensure your child/children has a cooked dinner the following week.

 

If you need to speak with the school office, please phone, email or if you need to call into the office only one family at a time.

 

Can I please ask that all parents and carers continue to socially distance from others and the school staff at the start and end of the school day. School staff will be wearing face masks when moving throughout the school. I do feel it would make returning children more complex if we enforced face masks to be worn by parents and carers. We would however, ask the whole community to respect the social distancing guidance.

 

Responsibility of the Whole School Community

 

It is also important to remind you of the part, as parents and carers, you play in keeping our schools as safe as possible.

 

What to do if your child develops symptoms of COVID 19

 

If your child develops symptoms of COVID-19, you should organise for your child to be tested via the NHS online portal or by calling 119. Your household should isolate until you receive the test results giving the all clear.

 

The past months have been incredibly challenging for everyone and the support and understanding from the St George’s community has been much appreciated.

 

Best wishes,

 

 

Mark Braund

Head Teacher
