It was lovely to have everyone back in school on Thursday, even though things are having to run slightly differently. Staff and students are all getting used to the ‘Bubbles’ and slightly different play and lunchtime arrangements.
The expectation is that all students will return to school and normal absence procedures will be followed. However, your child must not attend if they have symptoms of Covid (new continuous cough, and/or high temperature, loss of sense of smell or taste) within the last 7 days or they live with anyone who has had symptoms in the last 14 days. Parents/Carers must make it known to school if their child is absent for Covid related reasons and will be requested to isolate as per the national guidance.
Students will be in Key Stage ‘bubbles’ and will remain in one classroom for the vast majority of their learning, teachers will move to students. The timings within the school day will be slightly different to allow for good hygiene routines and to reduce numbers transitioning at any one time.
Students are waiting on their buses in the morning until they are told by a member of staff to make their way into school. If you are dropping off and/or collecting your child, can you please come into school on your own and be mindful of social distancing within the foyer area.
The risk assessment is on the September 2020 tab on this website. It is written to ensure that the risk of infection is kept to a minimum so staff and students can teach and learn safely.
Please contact school if you need any further information, advice or support.
Once again we were all delighted to get the Bank View Community back together.
