Return to School Arrangements

HENGOED PRIMARY SCHOOL

           Re-opening Plan – 29th June 2020

Dear Parent/Guardians,

Before I share the details of our school reopening I would firstly like to thank you for all you have done with your children over the past weeks. The staff have been amazed by the work completed and the activities you have been up to since school closed. Secondly, I would like to thank you for your patience when waiting for this plan.

Welsh Government want all school to offer an opportunity to ‘check in, catch up and prepare’. So, for the remainder of the Summer Term pupils will be attending at least 3 sessions, on a set day in the same group. Pupils will stay in their assigned class with the same member of staff. Those will be referred to as a bubble. The pupils will stay in these bubbles to minimise contact with others. There will be no more than 8 pupils on a class at any time and the classes will be divided into groups. Staff will be in touch to share which days your child/children will be attending if you have agreed for them to return.

Due to the size of the bubbles and the organisation it has taken the groups will not change. As stated in the letter from the LA there is no expectation for Nursery or Rising 3s to attend school during this period, however we will be offering this in our school.

How will it look?

  • There will be a maximum of 8 pupils in a bubble.
  • Each class will be appropriately resourced.
  • There will be a chair and table for each child 2M apart.
  • Each bubble will be assigned staff members to be with them at all times.
  • As often as possible lessons and breaks will be taken outside, there will be no mixing of bubbles at breaks or lunchtimes.
  • All pupils will need to bring a packed lunch and their own labelled bottle each time they attend. Nothing else to be brought from home. Free meals pupils will have a frozen packed lunch delivered with their allowance for the week. Please send this packed lunch in with your child.

  • Please could ALL pupils be ON TIME to ensure this runs smoothly, also after you have dropped your child off, or collected them, due to social distancing could you leave as quickly as possible.
  • All pupils are to wait outside the gate to be collected by a member of staff. They will then line up on the heart markings outside their classrooms. The staff will escort them in order to sanitise their hands on the way into the building.
  • We ask that no parents enter the school grounds. If you have any queries please RING the office.

What You Need to Do

  • If your child has any symptoms of Covid 19 or feel unwell they SHOULD NOT ATTEND SCHOOL.
  • School uniform is optional (no flip flops or sandals due to outdoor activities).

I know all staff can’t wait to welcome our pupils back. Thank you for your continued support. We look forward to seeing many of you over the next couple of weeks.

Thank you

Marian Thomas, Head teacher.
