A warm welcome back to all at

Warmsworth Primary School - Monday 8th March 2021

 

 Dear Parents/Carers,

Following the government’s announcement on Monday 22nd February, we are looking forward to seeing all the children back into school on Monday 8th March 2021 and wanted to give you a quick update about our full return to school, to ensure it runs as smoothly as possible.  School is going to look very similar to how it did when we were fully open in the autumn term, with children remaining in year group bubbles and reducing contact with other bubbles within school, children arriving and leaving school at staggered times etc.

Start and end times of the school day

The one-way system is continuing to work well and we will continue to use this for as long as it is needed to reduce the risk of face-to-face contact between adults and children on entry and exit to school.

We have been asked to continue with staggered drop off and collection times to reduce the risk to parents, children and staff. We have staggered arrival times at 5 minute intervals, so please can I take this opportunity to remind everyone that punctuality is even more important than ever.

We are aware that for some parents (and registered child-minders) with more than one child at our school, this may mean that several different times have been allocated for each child’s arrival and collection. As before Christmas, please drop your children off at school in the order of the one-way system at the earliest start time and collect in the same order at the latest collection time.

The start and finish times for your child(ren)’s class is below. Please note there have been some changes to timings and all children will be in school by 9am. Parents and carers are expected to wear a mask (or visible lanyard if exempt) when on school premises, and to socially distance at drop-off and collection times, as well as on the journey to school. In line with government guidance, we ask that only one adult accompanies each child for drop off and collection to promote social distancing and that adults leave the premises immediately and do not congregate on school grounds.

If your child is in years 3/4/5/6 and you have given written permission to allow them to leave school unaccompanied, your child(ren) will be released from their classroom exit. If your child attends wrap-around care, the Buttons staff will be expected to collect your child from their classroom doors at the times above.

Lunchtimes

We are still unable to use the dining halls for lunchtime, as we need to keep bubbles apart at all times in the day; consequently, children will continue to eat their lunch in classrooms instead. School meals will continue to be provided for those who wish to take them and there will be 2 hot options (meat/fish and vegetarian) and 2 cold sandwich options (meat and vegetarian).

What can my child bring to school?

Children will be expected to wear full school uniform and we continue to request that the children bring as little as possible to school - a jacket/coat (hat if needed), a water bottle, packed lunch (if they’re bringing one from home) and book bag, as needed. Children will be asked to come to school in their PE kits for the full day on their PE days – please ensure children wear school PE kit with a tracksuit if needed.

Children who are in years 4, 5 and 6, who have permission to walk home on their own, may bring a mobile phone to school, but there must be a signed agreement in place between home and school;  the children are then responsible for handing their phone into the office on arrival and collecting their phone for their journey home.

Attendance

Please remember that from 8th March 2021 the government have stated that attendance is compulsory (unless they child is critically extremely vulnerable and shielding); however, your child must not attend if they have Covid-like symptoms and you must be available to collect your child if they begin to show symptoms in school.

In the case of a confirmed case of  Covid 19, parents will be expected to comply with Track and Trace if your child’s ‘bubble’ shuts down.

 

We are all looking forward to seeing you all again and having all the children back in school!

Thank you everyone again for all your continued support during these unusual times.

Message from Doncaster Council:  

We are now under national restrictions. This means that you must stay at home unless you have to leave to go to work, buy essential items or take exercise with one other person

Childcare settings, schools and colleges remain open and children should attend unless they have any of the symptoms of Covid-19 in which case they should self-isolate and get a test immediately.

They symptoms are a high temperature, persistent cough or loss or change to sense of smell or taste.

It is important to remind all young people not to gather in groups on the way to and from school or to socialise together outside of school.

Remember to wash your hands regularly, wear a face covering when visiting essential shops or travelling on public transport and keep a safe space - stay two metres apart from people you do not live with.

Together we can help to reduce the spread of the virus – let’s do it for Doncaster.

Arrival and Collection to and from School

It is lovely to see all the children coming back to school this week . We are so impressed by the way they have all settled so quickly,  and adapted to the new routines – they are a credit to you all!

To enable us to keep everyone as safe as possible, we are relying on timings to be kept by both school staff and parents – I know this will get easier day by day,  as everyone becomes more familiar with the new routines.

In line with government guidelines, we have staggered both start and finish times, to keep parents and children as safe as possible; this should mean that there are only approx. 30 parents waiting at one collection point at any one time, as there would have been previously at a classroom door.

We appreciate that it can be difficult to arrive for a set time, however it has been suggested by several parents that if you are early, please could we ask you to wait on the opposite side of the road and keep the area by the collection points clear for the class that is exiting at that time.

Thank you for your continued support, we can make this work if we all work together.

Kind regards

Mrs Train

Welcome

Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to our new school website and thank you for taking the time to find out more about us. I hope you find the site informative and that it gives you an insight into the ethos of our school and what we can offer your child. We will be adding more as the year goes by, so please visit us regularly!
 
Warmsworth Primary School was praised by Ofsted (March 2014), as 'outstanding in all areas'. Every effort is made to make learning fun, with a rich variety of learning experiences, both through the curriculum and as part of our extended school day. Our dedicated team of staff and governors are committed to ensuring that all our children achieve their full potential. Our aim is to establish and maintain high standards of learning and behaviour, in a caring and welcoming environment, to prepare your child for the future and give them the skills and enthusiasm to pursue learning for the rest of their lives.
 
We believe that the partnership between home and school is very important and constantly strive to strengthen this link. There are many opportunities for parents to become involved in the work of the school and we always encourage them to play an active role in their child's education. Parents' time and expertise is always valued.
 
Please feel free to contact us if you wish to find out any more about the school or to arrange a visit.
 
I look forward to meeting you.
 
Rachel Train (Headteacher) 
 
 

Home Learning During School Closures:

 

First and foremost, thank you to all of you who have been supportive of school during this unprecedented period. We appreciate that like us, a lot has been asked of you and your role as a parent through this pandemic, and we know that you are doing the best you can to support your children with their home learning during this period.  

 

Many of you have been in touch through the class email accounts to say that you have finished the activities set and would like some more learning to support and stretch your child further. The learning we set was put together by class teachers during the constrained period the government gave us prior to closure, and was designed to fill the time we would spend in school on each subject over the period of a fortnight.

 

Please continue to contact your class teacher during the period of the closure for any support or guidance, or just to remain in touch.

 

This is an unprecedented emergency situation, which is impacting on the whole world.  

 

We know that you are, and always will be, your child's primary educator and you know your child best; if they spend time digging in the dirt, baking cakes or watching television, that is OK.

 

As a school, we had very limited notice and very limited preparation time. We were not told to continue to plan lessons as normal and just send them home - that's not possible, so what we have sent home is guidance for what you could do with your child. There are many other things which are hugely valuable like spending time together reading, playing a game, baking, gardening and being outdoors; all of these are OK too.  

 

The home learning and website links we have provided are suggestions of what you could do with your child – we will continue to add further ideas and information on our Twitter page @WarmsworthPrim1, as we find them, so please have a look.

 

We appreciate that your main role through this situation we face is to look after yourself and your family. Minimising stress is absolutely vital for everyone in a time like this - don't let home learning be something that stresses you and your family.

 

We will be making contact with every child at some point during our school closure – we want to keep in touch and know that you are all safe and well!

 

If there is anything further we can do to support you and your child’s education, don’t hesitate to get in touch via the class email link, but please don’t forget that maintaining a healthy mental wellbeing during this time is just as important.

From all the staff at Warmsworth Primary School
