School Calendar (adjusted)
Please note that have adjusted the start of term to enable students to settle into their new routines and will be providing a Transition week from the 31st August to the 4th September.* Please see further details on this week below, split for those who are joining us in-person, or at distance.
*This is optional for families who have already made plans that will preclude them from being able to attend over this week.
The first day of Transition Week for in-person learners is Monday 31st August and teachers will use this day to go over the practical arrangements for helping to keep everyone safe and well each day in school. In-person learners will then attend school each day this week from Monday 31st August- Thursday 3rd September. They will not have lessons on Friday 4th September.
The first day of Transition Week for distance learners is Tuesday 1st September and teachers will use this day to allow distance and in-person students in each class to get to know one another and to begin to establish and practise the arrangements for learning and collaborating as a class this year.
Distance learners will then attend school for the normal school hours this week from Tuesday 1st to Thursday 3rd September.
They will also have lesson time from 9 to 11 on Friday 4th September for distance learners only to go over the main arrangements for accessing lessons and work when full term begins the following week.
There are no lessons on the afternoon of Friday 4th September as this time will be used for staff training.
Full Year Calendar
Please review the full year school calendar for 2020/21 here.
A reminder that masks are to be worn by the full school community at all time when inside school buildings. Masks need to be brought from home and it is recommended to have a spare mask in case the primary mask gets wet or broken. The school does have spare masks in case of need.
ln conjunction with the Arrival & Dismissal timings and locations listed above, please remember:
Parents not allowed in school buildings - A reminder that parents may not come into school buildings, they may however stay socially distanced within the playground (Reception) and plaza, near the stairs to the Urban Garden (Year 1).
Scooters - For those riding scooters to school we have included information about where these can be left in the document. Please note students are responsible for parking and retrieving their own scooters on arrival and at dismissal.
These are located outside the main school entrance (Building 20). There is room for 20 bikes, to be used on a first come first serve basis.
Please note that school is not responsible for loss/theft/damage to bikes stored here.
These are not being used this term to avoid unnecessary congestion and congregation by the students, therefore we recommend items brought from home are kept to a minimum.
These will not be provided this year.
Please provide your own, labelled water bottle for your child.
A reminder this is being offered on a limited basis in pods only. Please indicate your interest in this for your family in the acknowledgement form (located in the Reopening Plan) due back to school on August 19th.
