Parent Briefing 03.06.2020

Hello Parents/Carers,

Thank you so much to all of those who have supported us so far in the wider opening of our school – it has been successful so far.

Whilst it’s not been school as we have known it, it’s been wonderful to see so many of the children who have returned.

As we’ve explained, we will continue to provide online learning for all year groups, so if your child is still not at school, they will still be able to learn.

Parents Coming on Site

We ask that children arrive within 5 minutes of their start time. If your child arrives early, they will not be permitted on site until 5 minutes before their start time.

We remind you that parents, carers and visitors are not permitted inside the school building at any time. Please respect this, for the benefit of all of our staff and students.

Children in Key Stage 2 (Years 3,4,5,6) will not be permitted to be accompanied by an adult onto the site, they must walk from their gate to their class.

Children in Nursery, Reception and Year 1 will be permitted to be accompanied by only one adult who must only drop their child(ren) to their class and then leave the site.

If you have a younger (pre-school) child with you, you may bring them onto the site whilst you drop your child, but you must keep this child with you at all times. If your child is not near you or complying social distancing, you will be asked to leave and wait for your child outside the gate.


Children do not have to wear school uniform, but we do ask that they wear trainers to school, and wear clothes that would be appropriate for PE and physical activity.

It is not appropriate for children in any year group to wear dresses, skirts, sandals, ballet pumps or flip-flops.

Please ensure all clothes are machine washable, and that children wear a fresh set of clothes each day.

Water Bottles

All children must bring in their own water bottle each day, to prevent any cross contamination.

  1. Thank you for the briefing email. It seems as though there is some conflicting information because I have put my daughter in a skirt this week on the day she didn’t have PE, we walked straight through the gate and her teacher advised this was ok to do. It’s very difficult for some parents to make sure they have enough clothes for their children to wear – on the days that my daughter doesn’t have PE and I know the days that she will be doing it why can’t girls where a skirt or dress? Thanks Emma

  2. Hello Emma,

    Thank you for your comment. We fully understand that families may not have enough different clothes to do this. We do ask that all pupils come to school in clothes they feel comfortable doing physical activity in. This is because, even if they do not have PE on that day, there may be physical activities that the children take part in during the playtimes, or during lessons.

    Further, since things are constantly changing during this time, the PE days and lessons are subject to change, and we want to make sure that the children are able to fully take part in all activities.

    I hope this helps.

    Best wishes,

  3. Hello Sarah,

    Thank you for your comment. We are happy for children to wear anything they will feel comfortable in, as long as every child is able to move freely and take part in PE and physical activities.

    Best wishes,
