Partial School Closure Letter and Critical Worker Request Form
Message from Mrs Sullivan
Good morning...IMPORTANT PLEASE READ!
As I know you will have seen over the weekend there has been a great deal of discussion about the re-opening of Primary Schools and whether staff were willing to return to full classes of face-to-face teaching. Each school has to make their own decision based upon their individual circumstances and this should be respected. All of the staff of St Peter's are committed to full class teaching and we WILL OPEN IN FULL as planned tomorrow. I want to thank the continued dedication and commitment of the entire team to allow this to happen.
However, the transmission rate of the new strain is reported to be much higher so we need your help to try and be even more careful in and around the school grounds. Please adhere to the measures below from tomorrow morning.
FACE MASKS must now be worn by all adults (and High School children) when on St Peter's Road, entering the school grounds and on school grounds, unless you are medically exempt. Please do not be offended if you are reminded of this by myself or a member of staff -we are just doing our job! If another person is collecting your child - please ensure they know this information!
The 'turning area' must not be used as a stand and wait/chat area in the mornings please; no adults should stand here. All parents/carers should line up on the path of St Peter's Road, spaced out, and walk in maintaining that space.
YEAR 6 children are the only children permitted on the yard before 8.50am, any Year 6 who arrive at school before this time do so at their own risk as they are not supervised. No other children are allowed on the yard, they should be standing with an adult on the pavement before coming into the grounds after the bell.
ONLY ONE parent/carer should be coming to the school site to collect children, this includes not standing outside the school gates and waiting whist the other parent goes in. Less adults = less risk!
Please utilise the full 15 minutes of staggered times before and after school to reduce congestion. Please SPACE OUT at all times, hang back, take your time and give people room.
Please keep to the correct sides of St Peter's Road when walking up and down to avoid cross overs. 'Up' is on the side nearest the school building, 'down' is on the side furthest away.
Sorry for the long post! We are doing everything we can within school to reduce risk and need our whole community to also play their part.
Thank you for your support, if you have any queries please contact me at school today on 01706 229972 or via my email firstname.lastname@example.org

Latest Letter, Booklet and Risk Assessment
Please see below a letter from Mrs Sullivan about the new arrangements for the return to school from the 8th June 2020 and a booklet for the children to look at with your selfs to explain the routine.
Dear Parents and Carers,
I hope this email finds those and the ones you love safe and well. I know that your children have been enjoying still being able to access school and I hope that by providing this facility we have in some way reduced some of the pressures you are facing.
I am writing to let you know that school will be closed to all children on MONDAY 8TH JUNE. This is to allow all the staff the opportunity to put all required practical actions in place for the wider opening of school from the next day onwards. I wanted to give you as much notice of this as possible and trust you can make alternative arrangements for that one day.
Further details about the wider opening of schools will be issued in the very near future but just to reassure you that our provision for the children who have parents/carers who are classed as 'Critical Workers' or children who are in the care of the Local Authority will still be provided with a school place when it is required. The usual online booking system will continue; thank you for the efficient way you complete these requests as it assists our planning a great deal.
Take care and I will be in touch soon,
Therefore, please can you go to our school website (www.stpetersrc.com) and on the homepage you will find an online form entitled 'Return to School Information'. Please complete one for each child indicating your response as soon as possible. This is particularly urgent for parents in Years R, 1 and 6 but I ask that all children are included in the responses.
Inevitably there will be endless questions about this situation which I will strive to answer in due course once the picture is clearer. Just to say that we 100% respect the decision you as parents and carers make for your children, whatever that is and I ask for your continued patience and willingness to work with us.
Thank you for your ongoing support and understanding, I will be in touch again when I have further updates, in the meantime please take care all of you.
