First Day for P1-3 Pupils – Reminder of Arrangements

P1-3 pupils have settled well on their first day back in school. It has been lovely to have them back in the building and we look forward to welcoming everyone back as soon as we are allowed to do so.

We have received a number of call asking about the start and end of day arrangements therefore I have copied them below as a reminder.

Thank you once again for sticking to the protocols and keeping everyone in our community safe.

Strict social distancing protocols for adults remain in place. We would request that only one adult per family accompanies our P1-3 pupils. Adults are still required to wear a face-covering when on the school premises, including the playground. Once you have dropped your child off we ask that you leave the playground and do not stand and chat with other adults.

Pupils can arrive at school from 8.45 a.m. when the doors will be open. Pupils should go straight to their classroom and wash their hands in preparation for a 9.00 a.m. start.

Class bubbles, increased hygiene measures and staggered breaks will remain in place. Lunch will be 12.00-12.45 or 12.45-1.30. Please inform the office if your child intends to go home for lunch.

There is no requirement for social distancing between Primary School pupils but pupils and adults will continue to stay 2m distance.

The school will continue to provide all resources needed by pupils therefore there is no need for pupils to bring anything from home. As increased ventilation is still in place, it is a good idea for pupils to wear layers as the temperature may fluctuate throughout the day. Learning outdoors will continue to feature so wet weather gear remains a requirement.

P1 pupils and any siblings will leave from 3.00 p.m. This will be followed by bus pupils at 3.10 p.m and the remainder of P2,3 and P4-7 hub pupils at 3.15 p.m.

At the end of the day we would again ask that, if pick up is required, only one adult per family comes to collect. If it is necessary to enter the playground, please stand well back from the school building. Please do not stand within 2m of adults from another household. 

The outdoor play equipment is out of use as we have no control over who has used it out with school hours. Please do not let pupils or younger siblings use this before or after school for health and safety reasons.

As pupils do not need to distance from each other please let those who are making their own way home leave through the gates first. Family groups that include an adult should maintain a 2m distance from each other as they leave.
