Letter to parents - plans from June 1st 2020.pdf

Back to school

This is a social story aimed to prepare children for their return to school. This book is written as an easy to understand guide to help children prepare for new routines and understand why these are necessary. This could help to prompt a valuable discussion with your child about their anxieties and worries.

If you have any questions, we are here and are happy to help :-)

Expectations for Behaviour

We have revised our expectations for pupil behaviour in line with our new routines and systems taking effect from 1st June. It is really important that you share these with your child before they come back to school.

Our policy remains the same, but with the expectation that you will be contacted immediately if a child is seen to be putting themselves and others at harm by not adhering to our safety measures. As always, we appreciate your continued support.

We have some new systems in place to help keep everyone safe when you come back to school. Have a look at the videos and captions below to get a sneak preview of what things will look like for Year R, 1 and 6 from 1st June.

What will happen at playtime?

Playtimes.MOV

The playground has been divided into two play zones; it is really important that you stay in your own play zone. Your teachers will remind you which play zone is yours and will be outside with you.

At playtimes you will have a box of equipment that will stay with your group. If you lose a ball, make sure you ask an adult to retrieve it for you - do not leave you play zone to go and get it.

Sometimes your group might go onto the field, the same rules will apply. Make sure you read the new parts of our behaviour expectations with a grown up before you come back to school so you know what is expected of you.
