COVID-19 Operation from January 2021

The school are once again in a period of partial closure, with on-site provision for the children of key workers and vulnerable learners and remote provision for those learning from home.  For those in school, we will continue to do all that we can to keep our pupils and staff safe; hygiene will continue to be an integral feature of the school day with regular handwashing, cleaning of classrooms throughout the school day and increased vigilance for anyone displaying signs of illness.

 

During the school day, bubbles will be as follows:

  • Reception and Key Stage One Bubble
  • Year 3 and 4 Bubble (mostly taught in one group)
  • Year 5 and 6 Bubble (mostly taught in two groups)

Our breakfast and after school clubs continue to run for those who need wrap around care and Early Birds nursery remains open as usual.

Remote Learning Provision

Children who are working at home will be provided with a full timetable of learning via our Google Classroom platform.  Key worker children will access the same provision in school.

Further information about our Remote Learning offer can be found here.

Dropping off:

We will be trialing allowing parents to use the bus lane to ease congestion at drop off but this will only work if ALL parents follow these guidelines:

  • Parents should remain in the car - only use the bus lane for drop off if your child can independently get out of the car and gather their belongings without your assistance
  • Parents MUST use the voluntary one way system and only pull into the bus lane when approaching it with the school on the left
  • Avoid protracted goodbyes – the time you are stationary in the bus lane must be as brief as possible
  • Have belongings ready with your child rather than in the boot

If you child is unable to independently and quickly get out of the car, please park away from the bus lane and walk them to the gate.

 

Picking Up:

One adult only should make their way to and from the designated pick up area for their bubble using the specific gates requested - these are marked clearly on the maps below.  Please leave the school site as soon as you have collected your child.  All gates will be open from 3pm, including the gates between the staff car park and playground to help with access to KS2 pick up points.  The school driveway will be coned off between 3pm and 3.30 to ensure it is safe for pedestrians. 

 

Please use the main school driveway to walk to KS2 collection points NOT the ramp that links KS1 and KS2 as it is too narrow to facilitate social distancing.

 

IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT YOU EMAIL hometime@therevel.co.uk TO INFORM US OF CHANGES TO YOUR CHILD’S PICK UP ARRANGEMENTS.

Kids Club

Our Kids Club will be running before and after school as usual, split into two Key Stage bubbles.  For more information about our Kids Club, please contact the school office.

 

Before School (8am start):

KS1 will be based in the KS1 learning zone.  Please drop off to the maple classroom door.

KS2 will be based in the school hall.  Please drop off via the Hall Fire Exit Door.

 

After School (until 5.30pm):

All after school provision will be based in the school hall, collection point is the fire exit door next to the main office.

 

 

Hot Dinners

Hot meals are available and the menus will be shared on a weekly basis as they vary from the usual selections.

General Back to School Information:

What should they wear?

Children should wear school uniform each day they are in school (the requirement for this to be clean every day has now been lifted).

 

Children should come to school wearing PE kit on their PE day.  Please note that lessons will be held outside as much as possible, so please dress your child in appropriate kit for the weather.  Due to timetable restrictions with the hall, it is likely that some PE lessons will be missed due to poor weather.  If teachers are able to re-schedule these for later in the week, parents will receive a text to request PE kit is worn on the appropriate day.

 

What should they bring?

As little as possible!  We request that children do not bring bags or anything non-essential into school.  

 

Items children may bring into school are as follows:

  • Lunchbox (if required, hot meal options are available)
  • Water bottle
  • Sun hat (please apply long-lasting sun cream before school if needed)
  • Small tube of hand lotion/moisturiser, if needed, that can be kept in school on their desk
  • YEAR 5 and 6 ONLY – pencil case which stays in school
  • Medication if needed - (eg inhalers) should be sent into school on the first day back and kept in school
  • Forest school kit which can stay in school - this should contain wellies and waterproofs. 

PLEASE NAME EVERYTHING!

What if my child is unwell?

It is crucial that any child or staff member who shows any sign of illness is cautious and stays away from school if they are unwell.  Please use the usual methods for reporting absence to the school.  If you are concerned that you or your child are displaying symptoms of Covid-19 it is essential that you self-isolate and book a test; please inform us immediately if this is the case.  If the result of the test is negative, children and staff are allowed to return to school as soon as they feel well enough.  If the result is positive, all bubbles linked to the individual will be closed for 14 days.

 

We will take a very cautious approach in school and will contact parents immediately if we have any concerns that your child is unwell; please ensure that we have up to date contact numbers.  You can update your emergency contact details by emailing the school office.

 

It is likely that there will be increased levels of absence among staff and pupils during this time as we take a cautious approach to any signs of illness.  It is crucial that testing is booked and completed as soon as possible to minimise disruption.

 

What if my child struggles to leave me in the morning?

We fully expect that some children may find it hard to say goodbye to parents at drop off time and we all need to be ready for this possibility.  Staff will be sympathetic and will happily support by talking to your child and encouraging them to join us, however we will not be able to assist in physically supporting the child to leave you.  In the event that your child simply won't let go of you, despite staff encouragement, the best action would be to calmly and patiently take your child home and try again the next day.  Staff at the gate will let class teachers know if this occurs.  If it happens more than once we will contact you to discuss how we can support you and help your child coming into school.

 

How do I contact the school?

We respectfully ask that you do not approach school staff or office staff in person, instead please email the school office with any queries and only telephone the school with urgent issues.  The office will forward emails to the relevant staff who will contact you as soon as they are able.

 

What happens if my child's bubble has to close for 14 days?

In the event of a bubble closure due to a positive test result, we will revert to online learning for the affected children.  Each child will be given an individual Google Classroom login in September and teaching staff will upload work, teaching videos and provide guidance and feedback to children through this medium.

What does school look like?
