The School Day
Soft Start – with Covid-19 Adaptations:
The school operates a ‘Soft Start’ approach to the beginning of each school day which allows us offer a staggered start to the school day ensuring families can safely drop off their children outside their classrooms.
Children are encouraged to go directly into their classrooms when they arrive, at their scheduled times, where their teacher is available to supervise and support them.
The French’s Road gate will be divided into ‘entrance’ and ‘exit’ to support social distancing when entering or leaving the grounds. Parents are asked to ensure that they socially distance (2 metres) at all times whilst on site and only stay onsite long enough to drop off and collect.
