School arrangements from September 2021... click to enlarge:
We need your support!
Please check in regularly with your child to see how they are doing, especially emotionally. We check regularly too, but we are eager to listen to any concerns you have. Please also refer to advice from the NSPCC and Young Minds. Look after yourselves as parents and carers too. Let us know if we can help. There is some great advice at the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families website.
Our school strategy to keep children and staff safe on site is:
Maximise hygiene and ventilate indoor areas
- Surfaces and contact points around classrooms and the school building (including toilets) are disinfected at least twice each day.
- There is hand sanitiser and anti-bacterial wipes in every room, as well as regular hand washing, especially after children have been outside or to a shared space.
- Keep windows and internal doors open when comfortable to do so.
- No one with symptoms of COVID-19 (coronavirus) allowed on site.
Communication between home and school
We will continue to communicate most regularly using ClassDojo, but we will also make use of the school website's class and year group pages to share documents and useful links.
Emergency plan if ever school needs to close or partially close:
Teachers will set work and communicate with you using ClassDojo. You will need to access this from a computer or tablet device. If this is a problem for you, please contact the school office.
If an individual needs to stay at home for covid-related reasons, we will provide appropriate work to be completed at home and submitted to the teacher using ClassDojo.
Please read our Windmill Guide to Home Learning, which helps you know what we expect from you... not too much!
We will need you to keep in touch with the class teacher using ClassDojo too.
