School re opening arrangements

We are very excited about reopening to all children in September and can't wait to see you!  The structure to the day has been decided with social distancing in consideration and will be constantly reviewed as the plan is put into action and we thank you for your understanding, with what has been an ever changing scene.

The school will:

  • Remind staff to comply with social distancing guidance outside of school
  • Stay alert for any pupils demonstrating symptoms of the virus and send them home
  • Ensure classroom desks are as socially spaced as possible
  • Organise pupils and staff into working ‘bubbles’ 
  • Stagger arrival and collection times and put in place appropriate measures to enable pupils and adults to socially distance
  • Organise the premises and pupil movement in a way that reduces contact with other pupils
  • Allocate toilets to specific classroom ‘bubbles’ to support social distancing
  • Zone outdoor areas to restrict contact between the different ‘bubbles’
  • Provide pupils with their own personal equipment/ small group equipment for use only by them
  • Provide cleaning equipment for teachers’ use in all classrooms
  • Follow cleaning routines to keep the premises clean throughout the day
  • Provide soap and sanitiser for use by pupils throughout the school 
  • Reinforce safe hand hygiene and respiratory hygiene at all times
  • Ensure shared resources and toys are cleaned at least once a day
  • Deep clean the school each week
  • Provide packed lunches as usual
  • Regularly review risk assessments, taking account the changing situation relating to the coronavirus and subsequent emerging government guidance
  • Inform parents of any new changes in guidance for schools 
  • Discuss the pupils’ responsibilities when they enter the school

 

As always, if you should have any questions please email your class email address or admin@westoverprimary.co.uk,  or  telephone the office, where we will endeavour to answer your questions.

 

In the meantime, have a wonderful summer and see you on September 7th!
