Welcome back to RPS Primary. We hope you had a fantastic summer break.
Schools are expected by the DfE to have a reopening risk assessment. This is where the school sets out how we will manage risks related to covid-19. This risk assessment is complete and you can read a copy on our school website.
We are looking forward to seeing all children return to school on Thursday 3rd September. Due to Covid-19 and the start of the new build construction work, children will enter school via different gates. They will also have different start and end times. Please arrive promptly for the start time that you have been allocated as each year group will be called in one at a time. This is to avoid year groups mixing. We will also release year groups during specific time-slots.
Each year group has different start times as follows:
Children will arrive at 08:30am. through the Early Years Gate. Children who attend Nursery in the morning only will exit via the Early Years Gate at 11:30am.
Children will arrive at 12:20pm via the Reception Office Gate. They will leave at 15:20pm via the Early Years Gate.
Children will arrive at 09:00am and go straight into their classrooms, The children will leave the school at 15:00pm.
Children will arrive at 08:50am and enter school through the Early Years Gate. They will travel through the Reception class, through the infant hall and straight into their classrooms.

Children attending breakfast club must arrive between 8am to 8:30 am to be permitted entry.
Children are expected to attend school in full uniform. If you need to purchase uniform, please do
so via parent pay. You can collect uniform on Fridays from Sharon in the school office by
arrangement. Please telephone to organise a time slot.
Please send your child to school with a labelled water bottle. This should contain water only.
Parents are not permitted to enter the school building without an appointment. You may call the school office to arrange a telephone consultation or a virtual Teams meeting with a member of staff or if a matter is urgent.
Please see the attached communication protocol so you are aware of other communication channel and who to contact. Teacher’s will be contactable via email but please bear in mind that they are teaching throughout the day. They will endeavour to respond to emails within 3 working days. Each teacher will send you a welcome email so that you have their email address. If your email has changed please ensure inform the school office.
All children will receive a hot meal and will be timetabled to eat within a year group bubble. I hope this helps clarify immediate questions that you may have. I will email with further information in the newsletter on Friday.
