Back to school March 8th 2021

Dear parents and carers,
I promised, here is further information on children's return to school on Monday 8th March.

Please be aware of the following safety measures which will be in place and thank you in advance for following these.

What time shall I drop off and collect my child?
Drop off and collection times will be staggered as follows:

Nursery children: 8.00am-11.00am (morning sessions) or 12 midday-3.00pm (afternoon sessions) or 8.00am-3.00pm for all day sessions)

Reception: 8.25am-2.50pm
Year 1: 8.30am-2.55pm
Year 2: 8.35am -3.00pm
Year 3: 8.40am-3.05pm
Year 4: 8.45am-3.10pm
Year 5: 8.50am-3.15pm
Year 6: 8.55-3.20pm

Please don't be early, don't be late, just be on time. Thank you

If you have a child in more than one year group, please drop off all your children at the EARLIEST time and collected them all at the LATEST time.

Which door do I use?
Please use the same doors as you did before Christmas. These were:

Nursery: the nursery fire door at the front of school
Reception: the doors off the Reception playground.
Class 1: classroom door off the KS1 playground
Class 2: classroom door off the KS1 playground
Class 3: classroom door off the KS1 playground
Class 4: classroom door off the KS1 playground
Year 3 bubble: door off the KS2 playground
Year 4 bubble: gate to the balcony off the KS2 playground.
Class 9: gate to the balcony off the KS2 playground.
Class 10: door off the KS2 playground
Year 6: fire door at the front of school next to the main entrance.

How do I keep myself and others safe on school grounds?
You will be required to:
-wear a mask (unless exempt)
-keep 2m distance from others wherever possible
-hold your child's hand to stop households mixing
-follow the one way system
-arrive on time to avoid congestion
-collect your children promptly and go and avoid meeting others

Parents and carers may also wish to take part in the lateral flow testing to help reduce infection rates across Tameside. Details are on a previous dojo message.

Can my child have a drink of water in school?
Yes. The best way to do this is for your child to bring their own water bottle with their name clearly marked on it. Thank you.

Will PE lessons take place?
Yes. This is so important for children's physical and mental well being. PE will continue to take place outside. Your son/daughter needs to come to school in sports wear. Please ensure this includes warm clothing if cold. Many children have come in dark tracksuits and white t-shirts. PE days are as follows:
Year 1-Mondays
Year 2-Tuesdays
Year 3-Thursdays
Year 4-Fridays
Year 5-Wednesdays
Year 6-Tuesdays

What are the arrangements for school dinners?
These can be ordered via school money as usual. When your order, the closing day for orders may say Wednesday at 12 midday but this will be extended this week until Thursday. Please order by Thursday 4th March. Thank you

The latest school risk assessment, in preparation for the 8th March will be on the school website.

Finally, the government has confirmed that attending school is mandatory so schools have to reinstate their usual attendance policies. This includes meetings and/or fines where attendance is a concern. Thank you in advance for ensuring your child arrives on time and comes to school regularly.

Should you have any further questions, please telephone school or email

We look forward to welcoming all the children back on 8th and in the meantime please keep safe and well and learning can be found on dojo. Staff remain on hand to help.

Thank you again for all your support

Miss K Leyland
