Phased Re-Opening Plans
Please click on the link below to view communications regarding our phased re-opening plans.
We have been advised by Nottinghamshire County Council that they have had to adapt their
menu to cover the return to school plans.
***Please see below for the interim menu***
Wherever possible, Christine will provide meals as detailed on the menu.
However, there may be small changes on some days due to potential disruption with the supply chain.
Your child can order a school meal on the day of attendance as normal.
Frequently Asked Questions
Which children are currently able to return to school?
Children of critical/key workers are a priority group. Please contact us if you think you may need a space because you are employed in any of the sectors mentioned in the following document:
Children who are Reception age; Brilliant Butterflies and Lovely Ladybirds.
From the 29th June, Year 1 children
What time are the current school sessions?
Your child will be greeted at the door by their teacher; please help us by leaving your child at that door. When dropping off and collecting them, please keep 2 meters away from others and encourage your child to do the same. We are asking that only one adult escort a child to school.
What will my child need to bring?
What measures have School introduced to minimise the current risks?
How can I help the school?
If I decide not to send my child to school when they are eligible, will I be penalised?
Attendance is not statutory and therefore you can choose whether or not to send your child back to school. We respect your decision. The Department for Education has made it clear that parents will not receive any unauthorised absences if your child does not attend school.
Should my child return to school if they are being ‘shielded’ or are ‘clinically extremely vulnerable’?
No. Please click on the link at the bottom of the page for the most up to date guidance.
Should my child attend if they are living with a ‘shielded’ or ‘extremely clinically vulnerable’ person?
You should proceed with caution. Government guidance states ‘If stringent social distance measures cannot be adhered to, we do not expect those individuals to attend’. We cannot guarantee social distance due to the age of the children who attend our setting but we do have increased hygiene and cleanliness practices and procedures.
Should my child attend if they are living with a ‘clinically vulnerable’ person?
Your child is allowed to return if you are happy for them to return.
What do I do if someone in my house is experiencing symptoms, however slight?
The main symptoms include:
If you, your child or anyone in your house (this includes those that are now in you are in a ‘support bubble’) please self-isolate immediately and visit https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19/ to arrange a test.
Please inform the school urgently.
Anyone with symptoms must self-isolate for 7 days from when their symptoms started unless their test comes back negative. Anyone who does not have symptoms must self-isolate for 14 days from when the first person in your home started having symptoms unless the test comes back negative.
