WestlandsFirst School

What are the staggered start and end times?

As per Government guidance, year groups will have staggered starts and end times to minimise the number of people on the playground and to help maintain social distancing. 
 

Please adhere to these times to help us keep everyone as safe as possible. 

Year 1 - 8:55am - 3:15pm (Year 1 Side classroom door) 
Year 2 - 8:30am - 2:50pm    (Year 2 side classroom door)
Year 3 - 8:55am - 3:15pm   (Main playground door)
Year 4  8:30am - 2:50pm (Main playground door)

Please note: if there are siblings in multiple classes, all children from the same family to be dropped off at the earliest time and picked up at the latest time. (eg if a parent has children in year 1 and 2 both children arrive at 8.30 and leave at 3.15)

Please do not allow your children to play on the equipment before or after school. 

What about lunchtime? 

There will initially be no hot lunches and all children will have a packed lunch. 
 

In order to adhere to social distancing guidelines, lunchtimes will also be organised in classrooms and a rota will be in place for an outdoor playtime. Children will regularly wash their hands. 
 

Are all children to come to school?

All children are required to attend school as usual from September. There are a number of measures in place to keep all children and staff safe including regular hand washing, no sharing of equipment, specific arrangements for classroom furniture and routines and regular cleaning of classrooms and equipment.  
 

If your child, or anyone in your household shows signs of Coronavirus, please follow the NHS guidelines on self isolating and testing, and inform the school as soon as possible. 
 

We will continue to update you with further details to help ensure a smooth transition back into school for everyone. If you have any questions please get in touch via email and keep checking back here for updates! 
 

Thank you for your support and understanding while we all work together to keep school as safe as possible during this unusual time.
