Welcome back to all our returning pupils, and to the new pupils joining our school!
As with many areas of life currently, there are a few considerations to bear in mind while coronavirus restrictions are still in place.
Classes are 'bubbled', meaning, at first, at least, we will not be mixing with other classes, nor will many of our normal weekly activities be available. These include all swimming activities, all off-site activities, and soft play.
Children will remain in the classroom more than they usually would, including at dinner time, though we hope to reintegrate all typical activities as soon as possible.
Other important pieces of information are listed below:-
If your child, or a member of your household, shows any symptoms, they must not attend school and must isolate at home.
Please take your child's temperature each morning and do not send them to school if it is 37.8 or above.
Initially, there will be no swimming, soft play, assemblies or out of school trips. We hope to resume these soon.
There will be hot school dinners available and they will be eaten in class.
At the moment, parents and carers are unable to come into our school building so any messages can be written in the children's orange "Home School Books." Please telephone school if you require any further information or want to speak to a member of staff.
Welcome to Caiman Class
Caiman Class is an Autism Specific Class made up of 8 Key Stage 2 children. There are five members of staff, Andrew Mayson the class teacher, Annette (HLTA), Jo, Val and Grace (teaching Assistants).
The children follow an adapted curriculum appropriate to their individual needs. We follow the TEACCH approach at regular intervals throughout the day.
The school hours for Caiman class will be 8.50 am - 3.00 pm, we will remain in our class bubble throughout the school day with regular hand washing as part of our daily routine.
We will continue to take part in the 'Daily Mile' each day in the playground.
Our weekly PE session will be on Wednesday's, please send in PE kits with children when they return back to school.
Unfortunately we will be unable to take part in swimming sessions until further notice, we will keep you updated on the situation as much as we can.
