September arrangements

Risk Assessments

We have updated our RA in response to announcements made by the government. Below is some key information.

  • Book bags and bags allowed
  • No class bubbles.
  • Any suspected Covid case sent home to reduce risk of transmission.
  • Children will have own stationary packs.
  • Equipment shared between classes or groups will need to be cleaned or placed into quarantined.
  • All cleaning and ventilation procedures remain in place.

    School Uniform Reminder

    Thank you for your support with school uniform this term. Please make sure your child has the correct school and PE uniform in September. Remember no coloured trainers.

    We will inform you when PE days are in September. Castle PE shirts available on the link below.

    Here is the link to our school  uniform  shop

    Book bags available.

Breakfast Club

This will resume in September. Miss Womack will be in touch regarding places and costs. Breakfast club will be open from 8 am and we will be asking parents to bring children to the hall doors so that no child is walking themselves into the building when no staff are on duty.

Class Structures and start times/ finish times

We will return to using our original gate on Low Road (currently Jaguars gate) and both gates on Station Road. I hope that the addition of another gate will help now that we have more pupils in school. I would request your help with not allowing children to climb on gates or walls and with avoiding parking on the no parking zones.
Arrival Times.
School gates will be open between 8.30- 8.40 am for arrival. Myself and Mrs Bond will be on duty so that children can continue to walk into school independently. This has really helped this year in getting the school day started promptly. Our youngest children (Reception) will be brought to the Reception class gate and be greeted by the staff. The gates will close at 8.40 am and any late children will need to be brought to the school office.
Finish Times
Key Stage 1 classes (Y1 and Y2) will be brought out onto the KS1 playgrounds at 3.05 pm. Please wait on the KS1 playground. This will really  help with the previous congestion at the KS1 doors.
Reception class children can be picked up from the class gate.
Years 3 and 4 will be brought out onto the KS2 playgrounds at 3.15 pm. Please wait on the KS2 playgrounds. This will really  help with the previous congestion at the hall doors.
Years 5 and 6 will leave the building independently at 3.15 pm.

Mrs Monaghan

Thank you for your donations. We will keep this link open until the end of term.

Don’t forget our Reading Challenge – stickers counted on Thursday,

Reading is such an important skill and we really need all children to be reading regularly at home. We do have increasing numbers of children earning stickers on their reading charts and being able to choose something from the School Council shop. Thank you for your support with this and keep reading.

I hope you have a good day
Mrs Mason
