St Peter and St Paul Catholic Primary Academy

The Academy Day

We are continuing with staggered entry and dismissal to avoid overcrowding and allow time for handwashing. Please see class times below:

Year Group Entry time Dismissal time
Upper Key Stage 2 (Year 5 and 6) 8:30 14:45
Lower Key Stage 2 (Year 3 and 4) 8:35 14:50
Key Stage 1 (Year 1 and 2) 8:40 14:55
EYFS 8:45 15:00
Seedlings Nursery 8:30 15:30

Staggered start and finish times will not reduce the amount of overall teaching time. It is important for your child to arrive on time, so no learning is missed. Following arrival children will wash their hands at the washing stations, be registered and start their learning. If you are able to walk or cycle to the Academy please do so.

What Your Child Should Bring With Them To The Academy

All the equipment needed for learning will be provided by the Academy. There will be no need to bring anything from home except:

  • A named bottle refilled daily with water from home (additional water is available throughout the day). Water is provided for all children at lunchtime, so there is no need to bring an additional drink for lunchtime.

  • A packet of tissues

  • A coat if the weather is cold

  • Essential medicines (the appropriate form needs to be completed online and emailed to the Academy)

  • Fridays only: a book bag containing the allocated reading books for the week. These will be monitored and changed on this day.

Lunches

The Academy would prefer all children to have an Academy hot lunch. The meals are cooked from fresh ingredients every day and are carefully planned to ensure they meet the children’s nutritional needs.

If you intended to provide your child with a packed lunch, this must be in a sealed bag, with a cool pack inside. All wrappings etc: will return daily inside the bag. Please do not put their lunch bag inside another bag as this increases the risk of the spread of infection further.  Remember, if your child is in Early Years, Year 1 or Year 2 the meal is free. If you are eligible for Free School Meals the meal is free. If you think you may be eligible for Free School Meals please apply information regarding how to can be provided by emailing the Academy on admin@stpstp.co.uk

Year 5 and Year 6 Pupils Only

Year 5 and Year 6 pupils will be allowed to travel home on their own with parental permission (letter available on the Academy website). Parents can meet their child further away from the Academy entrances if they so wish to ease social distance.

Face Coverings

The current Government advice is that children do not need to wear face coverings whilst at school. If you feel your child needs to wear a face covering whilst travelling to and from school this should be removed on arrival at the Academy. For children who are travelling alone and wearing a mask this needs to be removed on arrival and placed in a small sealed bag that will be kept in their tray. Masks that are not kept in this way will be disposed of in accordance with the Government guidance.

Attendance

As from the start of the Autumn term the usual rules on school attendance will be enforced. These are:

  • The parental duty to secure that their child attends regularly
  • The schools’ responsibilities to record attendance and follow up absences
  •  The availability to issue sanctions, including fixed penalty notices

Education is not optional.  All pupils receive a high-quality education that promotes their development and prepares them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.

SEND Support

SEND support will be available for children. Outside agencies will be allowed to work alongside Academy staff to support, assess and meet with children and parents. The SENCO is able to provide information regarding your child and should you wish to ask specific questions. Please email at admin@stpstp.co.uk or ring the Academy office.

As an Academy the Government advice on system controls to minimise the spread of COVID 19 is as follows:

  • Minimise contact with individuals who are unwell by ensuring that those who have coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms, or who have someone in their household who does, do not attend the Academy
  • Clean hands thoroughly more often than usual
  • Ensure good respiratory hygiene by promoting the ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’ approach
  • Enhanced cleaning, including cleaning frequently touched surfaces often
  • Minimise contact between individuals and maintain social distancing wherever possible

In response to any outbreak of infection we are asked to:

  • Engage with the NHS Test and Trace process
  • Manage confirmed cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) amongst the school community
  • Contain any outbreak by following local health protection team advice
