Social Distancing on School Site

A few parents have commented about the lack of social distancing at home time around the school site. Social distancing is so important to stopping this virus, look at the picture below to see the impact of keeping your distance.

To help ease this situation, we are monitoring the staggered collection times at the end of the school day. The school gates will be closed until 3.00pm as some parents have been coming on site far too early from 2.40pm. Please do not arrive before your allocated collection slot and try not to be late.

We staggered the start and collection times to cut the chance of catching the virus by lessening the number of adults around at any one time.

We have painted 2m intervals on the red line so that you can stay 2 metres apart from the other families. If you get to the door and there are other parents and carers waiting, use these markers to stand 2 metres apart from other adults.

The collection arrival times are:
3.00pm. - Surnames A-G
3.10pm. - Surnames H-N
3.20pm. - Surnames 0-Z

Thank you for your continued support during this ever-changing time.
