Dear Parents and Carers,

We are looking forward to welcoming all pupils back to school tomorrow.

As it stands currently, “The Government will continue to prioritise the wellbeing and long-term futures of our young people and will not be closing schools, colleges or universities. It remains very important for children and young people to attend, to support their wellbeing and education and help working parents and guardians. Senior clinicians still advise that school is the best place for children to be, and so they should continue to go to school. Schools have implemented a range of protective measures to make them safe.

Therefore, the expectation is that all pupils will return to school tomorrow.

Early Birds and Owls club, Band Academy and Strikers will continue until further notice.

Staggered start and finish to the school day

In addition to the previously issued guidance below, I have decided to implement two additional measures to help keep everyone safe.

  • As it is challenging to stay at least 2 metres apart, please wear a face-covering when dropping off and collecting your child and maintain at least a 1-metre distance from other waiting adults.
  • Please do not wait or loiter in the yellow marked zone (see image).
  • Please arrive at your allotted time – REMEMBER: one parent/carer per family (child)

  • If you arrive before your allotted time, please form a socially distancing queue along the front of the school, staying inside the red line.
  • Please do not wait in the area in front of the staff car park entrance. Find a socially distanced space elsewhere.
  • Please do not loiter outside the school after drop off/collection – move on quickly.
  • PLEASE REMEMBER – there are several free car parks in Hadleigh. We are receiving an increasing number of complaints from our neighbours where parents are blocking driveways etc. Please be considerate.

Ventilation

As we enter Autumn/Winter, due to Covid-19 measures, we have to maintain good ventilation in school. This will mean windows and doors remaining open. Please ensure your child is suitably prepared for the chilly weather… both outside and inside!
