It is wonderful news that all primary school classes will return from March 8th, as part of the national roadmap for exiting the lockdown. This is the first step and must be adhered to carefully to ensure that the next steps can take place. It is important to say that it is vital we keep in place all the measures we have to reduce risk of contamination and transmission which would result in self-isolation for classes and worst-case scenario the whole school.
We will be returning to the “class bubble” world, where classes keep apart for lessons, meals and breaktimes and there is no whole school mixing. For the first phase from 8th March to 29th March, subject to review, there will not be any Funzone provision. This position is to avoid risk to the whole school in the early stages of return, if we open this provision, we are risking cross contamination and spreading as the children and staff cannot be kept in class bubbles. In December, many classes were affected due to positive cases in staff and children who attended Funzone. Our intention is to open this on 29th March in line with the governments review of Step 1a, bookings for that period will not be open until the week before, remember we do not have a limitation on numbers for any Funzone sessions.
School meals will be provided from March 8th 2021, we have provided the last government vouchers for the period up until 8.3.21
All government guidelines will be followed: Hands, Face, Space and our safety measures are listed in the attached full letter,
