11th December update: The government has now changed the isolation period (from the onset of symptoms) to 10 days. Some documentation on this page will say 14 days.
Dropping off and picking up your child
We are operating a staggered drop off and pick up time to reduce congestion on the playground and around the school gates. Please maintain a distance of 2 metres from any adults who are not part of your household on school premises.
If your surname begins with letters A to H please drop off between 8.45 and 8.50am and pick up between 3.00 and 3.05pm.
If your surname begins with letters I to O please drop off between 8.50 and 8.55am and pick up between 3.05 and 3.10pm.
If your surname begins with letters P to Z please drop off between 8.55 and 9.00am and pick up between 3.10 and 3.15pm.
If your child has permission to walk home we will release them at 3.20pm. If your child has permission to walk home but they meet you on the playground, then you can either collect them at the classroom door in the approriate time slot or meet them at 3.20pm.
We are currently asking all parents and carers to wear a face covering on our site for pick up and drop off. If you are exempt please speak to the office who will arrange for your child to be collected from the main entrance.
All children should be wearing normal school uniform. There is no need for additional cleaning of clothes.
Year Group Bubbles
Government expectations are that children are kept in consistent groups to reduce transmission of the virus. At Bexton these groups will be year groups and mixing with other year groups will be kept to a minimum.
Lunch and break times
Children will be kept separate from other year groups at lunch and break times by having their own designated area to play in. These areas will be rotated weekly to give children a variety of spaces to play in.
Children in the infants will be eating in the dinner hall. Junior children who bring a packed lunch will be eating in their classrooms to reduce the number of children in the hall. Junior children who have a school dinner will be eating in the dinner hall.
The government have set the expectation that all children return to school in the autumn term. A small number of children may still be unable to attend in line with public health advice or because they are self-isolating. We ask you to keep in close communication with the school if either of these reasons apply to your child.
What if your child or someone in your household develops symptoms?
You must not bring your child or any siblings to school as everyone in your household needs to self-isolate until you can get a test. Please see the 'what to do if your child has symptoms' sheet attached to this page for more details.
All pupils should be in school by 9am at the latest. Any pupil will recieve a late mark after 9.15am. All pupils who are late must report to the school office and sign in on our inventory system. If your child is going to be absent or late then parents must telephone the office by 9.15am on 01565 632816.
Please see our Attendance and Punctualilty Policy for more details.
