PRIORY Risk Assessment Lockdown April 2021

Full opening of school March 2021 update.

The following outlines the measures that we are taking: 

  • Staggered start and finish times (outlined below)
  • One way system on the exterior of the school building – please adhere to this and avoid congregating in close proximity to others – both on the premises and around the gates.
  • Children in KS2 should be left at the outer gates and walk to their classes alone, 5 minutes before their start time. Where younger children need adult assistance we ask that only 1 adult drops off and collects.
  • All adults should wear a face covering and follow social distancing guidance.
  • We ask that all pupils go straight home after school and do not play on the school’s play equipment.
  • Staggered breaks – a rota and additional cleaning will provide safe access to spaces/equipment
  • Staggered lunches (with some pupils eating in classrooms)
  • No mixing of year groups – year group bubbles will ensure that workshops can still take place
  • No assemblies as a whole school – bubble worships, class-based worship and virtual celebration worships
  • All resources provided by school – no pencil cases from home
  • Pupils to come to school in PE kits on PE days – class timetables to be provided by teachers
  • Children sitting in rows. 2 to a desk. Facing forward from Year 2
  • Regular hand washing and sanitising
  • Regular cleaning throughout the day and thorough cleaning at night
  • Reduced contact between staff e.g. virtual staff training
  • Virtual parents’ evening
  • No clubs for the remainder of the year
  • Track and trace for essential visitors
  • Resources to support children with addition needs or anxiety, coming back into school, have been provided on the school website under the heading Covid. A pack from Stoke Educational Psychology is available on Dojo.
  • Children will wear normal school uniform.
  • Packed lunches should follow the usual ‘healthy eating’ options and all children should bring a named water bottle, for use throughout the day, no disposable cups will be provided.
  • We have procedures in place if a suspected or confirmed case of coronavirus occurs and will contact families immediately based on the guidance.

Below is a schedule of staggered timings for drop off and collection. Once doors are closed, children will be directed to enter through the main reception. It is extremely important, for everyone’s safety that you are only on site 5 minutes before your child’s start time. The school gates will not be opened until 8:40am and only pupils starting at 8:45am should enter the school site at this time.

  • Nursery – 9.00am at Nursery entrance. 3:00pm collection
  • Reception (Sparkling Sparrows and Rocking Robins) – 8:45am at Reception classroom doors. 3:05pm collection
  • Year 1 (Wonderful Willows and Magnificent Maples) – 9:00am at Year 1 classrooms doors. 3:15pm collection
  • Year 2 (Outstanding Oaks and Brilliant Beeches) – 8:45am at Year 2 classroom doors, 3:00pm collection
  • Year 3 (Downing Street and Trafalgar) – 8:45am at Year 3/4 doors. 3:00pm collection
  • Year 4 (Park Lane and Waterloo) – 9:00am at Year 3/4 doors. 3:15pm collection
  • Year 5 (Wimbledon and Wembley) – 8:45am at Year 5/6 doors. 3:00pm collection
  • Year 6 (Paddington and Piccadilly) –9:00am at Year 5/6 doors. 3:15pm collection

As previously, all doors will open from 8:45 to allow siblings to enter at a similar time.
Our plans will be reviewed regularly to ensure that we can keep everyone as safe as possible. We may also have to make changes based on local or national changes, we will always update you of any changes. Our full risk assessment is available aboce, should you wish to see it.
