Dear Parents and Carers,
Following the latest government advice and my observation of the drop off/collection of children, can I one again request that the earliest Year 3 and 4 parents arrive on the school site is 3 p.m. We are trying hard to keep your children safe and part of this is keeping adults safe. I would also insist that you follow the path around our school grounds when leaving with your child, some adults are crossing our yard or are going against the one-way system.
I have also observed and been informed that when Year 3 and 4 families leave their children on a morning they are gathering close to the main gates to talk to each other, this goes against what we are trying to achieve in terms of children’s safety and social distancing. If you need to talk to one another can you do this well away from the school to allow Year 5 and 6 children to enter school safely?
If people involved with the drop off/collection of children feel safer wearing a face mask, it is permissible to do so. We envisage this to be something the government will soon insist on, giving the rise in Covid Cases.
Beechdale Nursery and Consett Infant School have also implemented a staggered end to their day – we work closely with both schools and are therefore working together to keep everyone safe. Please try and follow the guidance set out by the schools – it is for everyone’s benefits.
