Details of school provision and help/resources for learning at home
Our plan for keeping children and staff safe is to:
Minimise contact and maximise hygiene
- Children only mix with other children in their classes (maximum of 30 children in a group).
- Children stay in the same room (apart from to go to the toilet, play/exercise outside and go to the hall in their own designated space).
- Surfaces and contact points around classrooms and the school building (including toilets) are disinfected regularly during the 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.
- Hot meals provided on site, packed lunches can be provided from home.
- No one with symptoms of COVID-19 (coronavirus) allowed on site.
- Children to wear clean clothes, uniform optional throughout September.
- There is a one-way / in-out system for moving around the school site (one 'in' gate and one 'out' gate).
- Some play equipment is not able to be used, but the equipment that can be easily cleaned and sanitised is still used.
- Minimum movement around the site by school staff.

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.
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.
To access our recommended websites for each group, use this Learning Links document.
For ideas about extra activities, have a look at our Learning Challenges document.
The Department for Education have recommended some websites for home learning too:
- PE and physical activity
- Mental well-being
- Special Educational Needs (including Autism) apps and games
