September 2020 Staggered start and finish times

Dear Parents, 


I wanted to give you as much notice as possible about our staggered start and finish times for our new academic year  September 2020. School will start on Tuesday the 1st September for children in F2 up to year 2.  F1 (nursery) will have been given a transition time for the first week and will begin their sessions on Monday 7th September. 

Due to Covid 19 life as we know it is going to change for a sustained period of time and we are having to follow the latest guidelines given from the DFE.  I realise that this is seven weeks away but we have had to start preparing and developing our risk assessment for this period.  


Sadly no parents will be allowed on site as we need to keep mixing of adults and children down to a minimum.  This has been extremely successful over the last 16 weeks and with your support and understanding I believe it can continue to be successful. Children have taken on the new rules and routines brilliantly too. 


So start and finish times for each year group are going to be different and each class will have a gate to enter and leave school through.  I am sure social distancing will still be in place at that point in time so we ask that you follow this by being on time to drop off and collect and follow the social distancing on the gate. 


F1 - start at 8.30am - 3.20pm - 30 hours 

F1 - start at 8.30am - 11.30 am - morning sessions

F1 - start at 12.20pm - 3.20pm - afternoon sessions 

F1 all at Imperial Avenue Gate

DSP - start at 8.50am - 3.00pm - need to drive in to school (most are taxis) 


It is vital that you arrive to drop off and collect on time because we cannot have year groups coming together and crossing over.  If you arrive late in the morning then you will not be admitted until the final group has been admitted and if you do arrive late to collect you will be asked to wait for collection until we have dismissed the last groups of children and a possible charge may be given due to the childcare provided by staff to care for the child. The DFE are expecting all children to come back to school from September 2020. 


I will be in touch in the summer with more details and I will also be sharing my risk assessment on the website once it is completed. 


If you do have any questions then please contact the school and leave a voice mail or a text message and someone will be back to you as soon as they can.  Please note school is closed the first week of the summer holidays. 


Many thanks and I look forward to welcoming you or welcoming you back to Imperial Avenue Infant School. 


Miss Smith
