What we are doing to keep everyone safe:
- Children can arrive at school from 8:45 to 9:00 so there is plenty of space between people. Parents can pick their child up early at 3:15 if they wish by arranging this with their teacher.
- Each class is a "bubble" and stays separate from others during lesson times and break times.
- They use their own equipment and don't share it with other children.
- Reading books are quarantined between one person using them and another.
- The IT room is used one class per week.
- Nursery and Reception children will eat in the hall, other classes will eat in their own classroom.
- C02 monitors measure the air in each class to see if it is well ventilated. If readings go high children will go for a break until it drops.
- There is extra handwashing and use of hand gel. Sinks are marked separately for different classes.
- Some rooms have spacing set out between staff and where children sit, which may include screens.
- Children can, if they wish, wear masks but need to be able to take them on and off unsupervised.
- Breakfast and After School Club children are grouped into infant / junior or classes depending on numbers.
- If there is a positive case classes will close as previously. All staff are being tested twice a week.

It doesn’t matter how long the eligibility lasts – once it is met a child gets it from then on in primary school.
