Over the last few weeks, we have been busy making some changes to our school; this is to make sure that your time in here is always happy and safe. We are so excited to share some photos of what the school looks like now and for you to see it all very soon!
As you arrive at school, you will see that we have new, shiny, blue school gates! The school drive is not accessible to cars whilst you are in school and continues to be used as a point of entry and exit. Some of you will walk up the path and some of you will walk up the drive. At the end of the day, you will all walk down the drive as you leave school.
You will also notice posters on the fence to remind you to maintain social distance at all times. Although you will be excited to see your friends again, it is important to remember to keep safe.
At the top of the drive, you will find new blue gates. This is where you will line up and wait for your teacher.
Your teacher will lead you down the path that leads to the playground.
The playground is divided into different sections - your class will be allocated one of the areas to play in during lunchtime and for PE. You will also soon be able to use the field too during playtime!
As you walk towards the playground, you will find a new Woodland Area as you go past the statue of Our Lady. We are so excited for you all to be able to explore the area and spend time involved in outdoor learning.
Before you walk into school, you will use the new handbasins that have been installed on the playground for you to wash your hands and keep them clean at all times.
There are also sanitisers and more hand basins at different points across the school - you will be expected to use these and the handwashing facilities regularly during the school day.
Once in school, you will put your coat, hat and lunch bag in your locker or on your peg. You will then follow you teacher to your classroom. Here are some photos of our classrooms...
Foundation Stage looks a little different to the rest of the school. Here are some photos…
At the moment, you will only visit certain areas, like the Computer Suite and the Library, with your teacher.
There are also other learning areas in the school that you will also visit with you teacher for different activities …
Sometimes, you may need to visit the First Aid Room (below) if you fall over or if you hurt yourself, or the Medical Room if you are feeling poorly ; your teachers will take care of you and stay with you until you go home.
We are all so excited for you to start school again and cannot wait to see you all. Please remember that your teacher will be able to answer all your questions that you may have.
Take care and stay safe.
