Pupil are asked to arrive at the main entrance at the time stated and will leave again from here. Socially distanced markings will be visible in the yard in 3 groups of 10. Pupils will be escorted into the building by a member of staff. On entering the building each pupil must use the hand sanitiser provided.
**ALL pupils should wear casual clothes that are easy to wash**
Please remind your child to maintain a 2m distance as they move towards the school theatre. Pupils will hear from Mr McCormick (HT), Mr McQuaid, DHT and Mr McPake (PTPS). They will be provided with a stationery pack and a transition booklet.
Pupils will then tour the school in small groups and will be introduced to the health and safety procedures which will be implemented in August in line with COVID-19 advice. They will then have an opportunity to meet with their new classmates and socialise with them in the school canteen (the canteen will have markings to ensure social distancing). They will be provided with a hot snack, drink and a treat free of charge.
Parents / Carers should wait outside in the car park to collect their child (they must not enter the school building). Pupils will be escorted again in small groups to the front entrance and will remain in socially distanced lines until collected by a parent/carer.
If you wish your child to walk home please provide them with a note to confirm this.
If your child is displaying any of the extended list of symptoms associated with COVID-19 they must remain at home. Please contact the school (Tel. 01698 274976) and arrangements will be made to send the transition booklet and pack home.
