We hope you are all keeping well and looking forward to this Summer. We have all enjoyed seeing and working with many of the pupils during the brief time they have returned to us. They have all coped very well with the unique changes we have had to make and are proud of their resilience and continued enthusiasm towards their learning. This letter is just to give you an update to some of the arrangements for your child starting back in September 2020.
Government guidance now states school is compulsory once again from September so we are expecting everyone to return on their first scheduled date. For those pupils in Nursery and Reception, you will have the same staggered start dates as previously sent out. Pupils in Year 1 and Year 2 will return on Thursday 3rd September.
Due to the need for staggered starting across the school the times for some year groups has slightly changed. Please find below the proposed times:
Nursery – 9:00am to 11:30am or 12:30pm to 3:00pm
Reception – 8:40am to 3:00pm (please use Burley gate if possible)
Year One – 8:50am to 3:10pm (please use Northfields gate if possible)
Year Two – 9:00am to 3:20pm (Maple use Northfields gate and Willow use Burley gate)
Please again like this term, try to avoid arriving either too early or late, only one member of the family to accompany your child and keep social distancing whilst waiting on the playground. We apologise for this but need to ensure all staff and pupils who will be now working within their Year Group Bubbles do not have contact with anyone else whilst in school.
We have updated the website with clear details of what school will look like in September.
We look forward to welcoming you and your family back to Northfields and although for some the transition process has not been ideal this year we expect your child to settle into their new classes very quickly.
Have lovely Summer and we look forward to seeing you in September.
Miss Logan Mr Albon
