Return to School – Monday 15th March

Dear Parent/Carer,

Please find below our arrangements for a return to school for all pupils from Monday 15th March 2021.

You can also read/download our latest newsletter here.

We are looking forward to welcoming all our children back.

Kind Regards,
Team Mosssend

Breakfast Clubs

From Monday 15th March, Breakfast Clubs will return to full service for all families who require the service. Children will be seated in Bubbles, staff supervising breakfast club sessions will maintain social distancing and wear gloves and face coverings.

Staggered Entry and Exits

As our whole school community comes together once again we will be re-introducing staggered entry and exit times for each class. This will ease congestion in the playground, in the corridors and stairwells around the school, and for adults at the school gates. Please see below for a note of new school day times for each stage:

8.50am – 2.50pm             All P1s, All P5s, All P6s

9am – 3pm                         All P3s and all P4s

9.10am – 3.10pm             All P2s and all P7s

To help support in the smooth running of these arrangements we ask that parents and carers adhere to the following:

  • Children will enter and exit the building at staggered times, children should only arrive in school a few minutes before their starting time unless attending breakfast club
  • Where siblings have different start times, siblings may all arrive together at the earliest start time
  • Siblings can leave together at the earliest leaving time with prior arrangement with the school, children who are able to walk home independently should be encouraged to do so. In the event that siblings have different exit times, any parent wishing to make arrangements for their children to be dismissed together can do so through prior arrangement with the school, please e-mail if this is required
  • Parents are responsible for ensuring that they are adhering to 2m physical distancing at the school gates, face masks must also be worn unless individuals are exempt

Mossend Primary School Primaries 1 – 7 Arrival and Physical Education Arrangements

Children in primaries 1 – 3 returned to school on Monday 22nd February, 9am – 2.50pm. From Monday 15th March children in primaries 4 – 7 will return to school from as per the staggered arrangements above.  Please note that the P3 children in Miss Marshall’s class, who have been working with Mrs McKay, will return to their original P3/4 class.

Miss Mill will now take on class responsibility for P7, Mrs Gordon’s class. Mr Malik will continue to take on class responsibility for P7, Miss Graham’s class until her phased return in March/April 2021.

Outdoor PE will continue to be held outdoors. On these days children can come to school dressed in their outdoor PE kit which consists of a plain white t-shirt, and dark joggers or leggings.  Please ensure that children are dressed appropriately for all weathers. Please note that on all other days children should come to school dressed in full school uniform. Please see below for a note of PE days for each class:

These plans will continually be reviewed and are always subject to change as the situation develops. We will make changes as necessary, which could be with little notice. We thank you in advance for your understanding and support as we attempt to protect our school community as best we can at this time.

Attendance Please read carefully

A reminder that no child should attend school if they are displaying any of the following symptoms:

  • A new or persistent cough
  • A temperature
  • A loss of taste or smell

If anyone in your household, or someone your child has had close contact with, requires to have a Covid test then your child should not attend school until the result of the test is known. If in doubt, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we can offer you guidance based on the most current advice. If you make the decision to take your child for a Corona Virus test, please telephone and inform the school office.

If someone in your household, or a close contact, receives a positive test result, then all members of your household should self-isolate for 10 days.

A reminder that in line with current guidelines, we should not be visiting other households, this extends to children too. Playing outdoors together is permitted.

If your child is unwell and cannot attend school then please call the school office to inform staff as early as possible in the morning.

Parent Support Plea – Please read carefully

Staff are working tirelessly to ensure that our learning environment is as safe as it can be for our wee ones. We appeal to our parent community to support us with this. Please stick promptly to the timings for your children, and do not hang around at the school gate. If you are dropping off, or picking up your children then please wear a face covering unless you have an exemption.

Parents of children in P1 – P3 should still enter the school grounds at the end of the school day to collect, however, you must vacate the grounds as soon as possible to allow the next exit time to do so safely. We thank you in advance for your co-operation with this.

Dear Parent/Carer,

We are carrying out a short survey to assess the digital access to devices and internet that our families have access to. We would appreciate if you could complete the survey on the link below, particularly if you currently do not have sufficient access to digital devices or internet connectivity to allow us to look at ways support you.

 Please note that this survey will end at 3pm on Thursday 14th January 2021.

 Many thanks,

Webex Meeting

Dear Parent/Carer,

Glow and Microsoft Teams is running slow across Scotland today, as pupils all over try to gain access. These systems are not managed by the school, they are nationwide and therefore we all just need to be patient, the issues will resolve.

We know it is frustrating, but please don’t stress. Go a walk, do something offline, BBC Education TV or some PE with Joe and then come back to it later.

If you have an enquiry or an issue you need help with then please email or telephone, however we would ask that you do not repeatedly email or phone in the one day. This is new for us all and we are all trying our best, please be patient and kind as we also have children in front of us in the school building. Microsoft Teams is NOT the platform for parents/carers to communicate either with each other or the teacher, and remember that teachers have their own families too and do need to switch off from work (just like you), so please don’t expect replies at weekends and evenings.

We are having a WebEx meeting for parents/carers at 11am tomorrow, we would encourage you to join if you can, the link is below:

If you can’t make this meeting, but require support then please drop us an email and we will get back to you when we can.

Kind Regards,
Team Mossend
