I hope you are all well and have had a good summer. We are all looking forward to welcoming our children back and getting the learning buzz back at Stoke.
School starts next week on Wednesday 2nd September for all our children, from Reception class up to Year 6. We will open the gates at 8.45am.
On arrival we have 4 different entrances for the children.
- Reception – will enter through the main entrance gate for school
- Year 1 & 2 – will enter through the normal gate on the pavement
- Year 3 & 4 – will enter through the lower staff carpark
- Year 5 & 6 – will enter through the small carpark near the main entrance
In school we will have phase groups who will use their classrooms, a set area of the playground and allocated times in the school hall for lunch and PE lessons. Managing school this way allows us to ensure we have the right cleaning in place between groups and to ensure that movement around school is controlled so that any additional cleaning can take place.
We have a Risk Assessment that has been shared with Coventry City Council which outlines how we are managing Covid in school and this is also available on our school website.
If you need to quarantine due to travel from other countries, you must contact school to tell us when it started and when it is due to finish. We will be in contact with you over this period and provide work for your child to complete.
I am aware there have been discussions about using hand sanitiser. As a school we have the required cleaning products, hand cleaner and systems in place. Please do not give your child a bottle of hand sanitiser to bring to school as they won’t be able to use it.
The school cleaning team developed strong systems when we reopened in June and I am confident that they will continue to maintain very high standards across school this term.
You will receive a further letter with more details in from your child’s phase in the next two days to provide more detail. If you have any questions please contact school via the email@example.com
