Update: Wednesday 2nd September 2020

Headteacher’s message  

Dear Parents/Carers, 

Welcome back! We’re delighted to have our Tunbury children back in school today. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding in adapting to our new entry and exit routines. After this morning’s drop-off, we would ask you to read the following important points: 

  • Please be mindful of social distancing when waiting outside school or in a queue
     
  • Please limit your family group to one adult only (today we had lots of families with both parents, as well as secondary aged children too – this makes the groups very large and social distancing more difficult)

  •  Please know your time-slot and gate and be here only within your ten minute time-slot
     
  • While you are waiting, please be prepared to say goodbye to your children before you get to the gates, so that they can flow into school straight away at the drop-off point
     
  • We’re sorry, but the school staff on the gates can’t take messages – please contact the school office by phone or email with any important messages
     
  • Please leave the school area promptly after drop-off
     
  • At the front gate: tomorrow, we will queue Year 1 children (plus older siblings) separately to Year 2 children (plus older siblings) to ensure that only Year 1s enter between 8.35-8.45
     
  • At the playground gate: please queue down the path into the park, not across the car park
     
  • Please be respectful of social distancing around our School Crossing Patrol and follow her instructions when crossing the road 

We’re aware that this morning’s drop-off took longer than planned – with the above measures and greater familiarity with the routines, we hope that tomorrow will be quicker. 

For this afternoon’s pick up, we will have signs at the gates to show you where to queue. At both the front gate and the side gate, there will be one queue for each class. At the playground gate, there will be just one queue for the whole year group, leading down the path into the park, as unfortunately we don’t have space here for three queues for separate classes. 

Thank you for your support and understanding. 

Best wishes

Ruth Austin
