Important Parent/Carer Update

Important Parent/Carer Update

Today we have been made aware of a member of staff who has  tested positive for COVID 19 in the Year 6 team. All pupils in 6RH have been identified as close contacts with the member of staff. Parents of this class have received a letter advising that their child should now self isolate for 14 days from the last point of contact.

For everyone else, the school will open as planned on Monday 2nd November.

We have not been made aware of any other positive cases over the half term break. If your child or a member of your family have tested positive or have had COVID symptoms over the half term, please let us know via the ABSENCE FORM. You should follow the government advice and self-isolate for 14 days. 

Over the half term we took the opportunity to disinfect the school. A local company used a fogging type machine across the site, similar to those used by TfL.

Arrangements 

With the further tightening of restrictions across the country expected later today, we ask that all parents and visitors wear a face covering when on the school site, which includes dropping off and picking up. Those with an underlying health condition should consider whether the school site is a good place to be, given the rise in infection rates. 

Dropping off and Picking up Arrangements are therefore:

  • Observe the 1-2m distancing rule

  • Adults should wear a face covering anywhere on the schools grounds

  • Pick up and collect at the right time

  • One adult only dropping and collecting

  • Follow the one way system

  • Juniors dropped at the gates in the morning

A reminder of the times, which helps reduce the number of people on site. Some parents have been getting earlier, which does not help the system keep numbers steady. 

  • More than one child? Drop off between 08:40 and 09:00

  • Nursery drop-off between 08:30 and 08:40. Pick up times vary depending on hours. 

  • Reception drop-off between 08:40 and 08:50. Pick up between 15:10 and 15:20

  • Year 1 drop-off between 08:30 and 08:40. Pick up between 15:00 and 15:10

  • Year 2 drop-off between 08:50 and 09:00. Pick up between 15:20 and 15:30

  • Year 3 drop-off between 08:40 and 08:50. Pick up between 15:10 and 15:20

  • Year 4 drop-off between 08:50 and 09:00. Pick up between 15:20 and 15:30

Raglan Wrap Club

Raglan Wrap Club will continue as planned and all those offered a place have been notified and should now have made their bookings. Please do not send your child to the club without a booking. The club operates across 4 smaller consistent groups as there are a mix of bubbles within this arrangement as set out in the guidance. 

Clubs

Clubs will start as planned. These are organised within bubbles only. You should have received a letter on Friday 23rd (paper copy only) with the confirmed places.
