I am very happy to be able to welcome all the Four Swannes family back to school this coming Thursday 3rd September.
IF YOUR CHILD/CHILDREN SHOW ANY SYMPTOMS OF COVID 19, PLEASE DO NOT BRING THEM INTO SCHOOL.
For details on symptoms please visit :
It is essential that we get our children back to learning and building the knowledge and skills required to have an active and fulfilled future. The teaching team will have been back already, working hard to prepare the school to ensure it is as safe as possible for every person that is on site. As I type, final detail is being added to the school’s risk assessment which will be shared with the whole community once complete.
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 8:30am 3:00pm
Year 3/4 8:45am 3:15pm
Year 1/2 8:30am 3:00pm
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 junior classes (Years 3-6) 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.
Parent/carers for years 1/2 will only be able to drop children off at the small gate and not entering the school site properly. A member of staff will be there to support/direct where required.
Collection for ALL children will be back at the drop-off point at the time shown. Please ensure that you are on time to collect your children.
Other important points for the first day back:
It is unfortunate that we need to return with such an array of requirements, 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 with more urgent detail being sent to you via SMS (text).
Please ensure that you carefully read the school’s risk assessment once published. It is important that all of us understand the requirements so as we can all work together to keep each other safe.
