Unfortunately, due to an increase in positive cases of Covid in the school of both children and staff, we need to return to the process followed in the summer term. This requires for the school to now operate under our Outbreak Plan which sees a return to the restrictions that we have seen in place previously.
Changes to the daily routine will begin from Monday 22nd November 2021 and will continue until further notice.
In line with the requirements set out by the Department for Education (DfE) and Herts County Council (HCC) the school must ensure that we create ‘bubbles’ that will decrease the possibility of spreading Covid 19. This means that there needs to be various drop off, break, lunch and collection times for each group.
The following detail will inform you of when to drop off and collect your child/children. Please ensure that you keep to the stated times to avoid congregating with other groups.
Group (Bubble) Drop-off Collection
Year 5/6 8:15am 2:45pm
Year 3/4 8:25am 2:55pm
Year 1/2 8:35am 3:05pm
Reception 8:45am 3:15pm
Members of staff will be at the school gates each morning to support and direct families where required. No parents from any KS1 or KS2 classes (Years 1-6) will be allowed on site. Children from these year groups will be dropped at the main gate and enter the site through a separate entrance and into classrooms through their external doors.
A member of staff will be in the school playground to support/direct where required.
Collection for ALL children will be back at the main gate at the time shown.
Please ensure that you are on time to collect your children.
Other important points for Monday:
IF YOUR CHILD/CHILDREN SHOW ANY SYMPTOMS OF COVID 19, PLEASE DO NOT BRING THEM INTO SCHOOL.

It is unfortunate that we need to return to such an array of requirements on Monday. However, all the changes are completely in the interests of keeping all the Four Swannes community as safe as possible. All and any further detail will be posted on the school site over the coming days/weeks and more urgent detail with be sent through the MySchool app.
I would like to thank you all for your support and understanding whilst we once again work our way through yet another challenging period.
