RE: DROP OFF AND COLLECTION ARRANGEMENTS
As you will be aware, we are currently operating a one-way system in the school which is likely to remain in place for the foreseeable future whilst we are still under COVID Regulations and as recommended by the Local Authority.
Parents must not arrive at school earlier than 3.10 p.m. to collect their child(ren) as this is causing problems with social distancing and the safety of others. In addition, unless you are exempt, facemasks must be worn whilst on school premises and social distancing must be observed in order to protect school staff, other parents and the wider community.
All parents must also closely supervise their child(ren) and leave the school site as quickly as possible after drop off and collection. Parents should not gather or remain on school premises for longer than is necessary and adhere to the one-way system that is currently in place. Also, whilst waiting for any siblings, children should not be playing on playground equipment.
As you will appreciate, we have listened to parents concerns/opinions and in an effort to ease congestion, reopened our Cromer Street gates. However, if problems continue with social distancing etc. we may have to reconsider closing our Cromer Street gates once again.
Lastly, can we remind you that if arrangements for the collection for your child(ren) change during the day you must inform the school office otherwise we will not be able to release your child(ren) to the person or persons that have called to collect them. If the office is busy on the telephone, please leave a message on the school answerphone and Mrs Kent will return your call as soon as she is able to.
Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
Ms G Owen
