Returning to School in September

Now that the end of the summer term is here, we’re busy planning for September when we will be welcoming all the boys and girls back to school. We’ve been asked to publish our draft risk assessment for returning to school which can be found below. With any risk assessment, it is reviewed regularly to ensure it is fit for purpose and using the most up-to-date guidance available:

Risk assessment for schools returning COVID-19 3-8-2020

The school will be having two preparation days on Tuesday 1st and Wednesday 2nd of September so children from existing N2 to Year Six will start back to school on Thursday 3rd of September 2020.

New nursery pupils have been contacted with arrangements for them to start in a staggered way in early September.

Below, we’ve put some guides together for parents from each of the classes from Nursery to Year 6. In the guides, we’ve provided information on staggered start times and end times, lunch arrangements and other information that we think you’d like to know before your child returns. It’s really important that you read the information for your child’s class and are confident that we’ve adapted the classrooms to fit the current Welsh Government guidance and will be well ventilated and cleaned through the day.

Start and end times are staggered for your children. Also, pupils who are eligible for free school meals will have to now pay for their lunch or bring their own packed lunch for the remainder of the time that the Authority distributes the money through BACS to you as parents. Please be aware that Breakfast Club will not initially be running when we go back to school but we are working hard to get it back in operation safely.

If you have any questions on anything, please just email melinprimary@npt.school and we’ll do our best to answer them
