Is it a cold, or Coronavirus?

Further information about arrangements for September were sent home via email.

Here are some key points you may find useful:

The past few months have highlighted that we have an amazing school community, who all have a common goal - happy children.

 

Guidelines for the safe re-opening of schools have been provided by the Department of Education (in consultation with Public Health England) with the latest update published on 7th August.

We have set out a comprehensive set of strategies and essential systems of control in order that we minimise the risk of infection for all members of our school community, aiming to keep everyone safe and happy.

Staggered drop-off and pick-up times.

To minimise the number of people gathering around the school site at the beginning and end of each day, we have set out a timetable for drop off and collection. Timings are tight and we request that you ensure you do your utmost to arrive within the allocated time. If you have more than one child at school, please drop off/collect all children in your family at the earliest of the time slots provided.  

On arrival (at your child’s allocated school gate) please enter the playground area where the children will be collected by school staff and escorted (or directed) to their class.  At the end of the day, children will be escorted back to the same playground to waiting parents/carers. Please note that adults will not be allowed into the school buildings unless they have a previously arranged appointment. 

We ask that parents and carers support us by:

  • Ensuring that only 1 adult per family attends school for drop off and collection.

  • Adhering to social distancing rules, keeping 2m away from other people.

  • Avoiding gathering / lingering on the playground.

  • Keeping left when moving in and out of the school site.

The staff and Governors of Withycombe Raleigh Primary School would like to extend a warm welcome to you. We are a large Church Primary School situated on the outskirts of the wonderful seaside town of Exmouth in East Devon.

 

We all work very hard to ensure every child in our care is given the opportunity to reach their full potential so that they leave us well-equipped to enter into their next stage of education and on into the challenges of adult life.

 

Our school is dedicated to creating a happy, stimulating learning environment supported by the Christian values of GRACE - Generosity, Respect, Agape, Courage and Empathy.

​​Attendance

It is now mandatory that all children should attend school from September 7th.  We understand that some children will be anxious about attending school after being away for so long. Please contact us as soon as possible if attending school due to anxiety is proving an issue.  We would like to assure you that we will endeavour to do all that we can to support all of our pupils emotionally, to make the transition back into school as smooth as possible. Please see the letter sent home for information about shielding and illness.

Teaching and Learning

Our aim for the start of term is to get all children feeling happy, safe and secure back in the school environment. There will be a focus on providing the children with a broad and balanced curriculum with an initial emphasis on providing opportunities to develop their emotional well-being and to provide plenty of physical activity. We understand that children will be worried and anxious and also perhaps excited and happy about being back in school. Our priority is that the children make a positive transition into their new classes so they are ready and able to learn as soon as possible.

We hope that the above details are useful and will have helped you to support your children’s preparation for the new term. The plans we have made are subject to change depending on developments in guidance. We will of course keep you updated of any notable changes. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the rest of the holiday and I look forward to seeing you all in September!
