Welcome to Holymead


Dear Parents and Carers,

We are very much looking forward to welcoming everyone on 6th September. There have been a few changes since the government’s announcements in August, so please find attached the Covid-19 risk assessment which has been updated for September 2021. There is also a Contingency Plan so you can see what the school will do in case of an increasing number of Covid cases in school. Information about hand hygiene, mask wearing, ventilation and what to do when there are symptomatic people and positive cases in school are all included in the risk assessment so please have a good read.

Please note the following start and finish times for the school day:

Infant Site

YR (Reception)-Y2 Doors open at 8.50am

Register is 9am

Home time is 3.10pm

Junior Site

Y3-Y6 Gates and doors open 8.40am. Y4-Y6 children should say good bye to parents/carers at the gate and come onto the playground by themselves (like last year) and go straight to their new classrooms; staff will be on hand to assist. Y3 parents/carers can accompany pupils onto the playground and to their new classrooms.

Register is 9am

Home time is 3.15pm for Y3 and Y4

Home time is 3.20pm for Y5 and Y6

All parents and carers can come onto the playground to collect pupils after school. We know there will be some issues with collecting children from both sites so teachers will wait for 10 minutes before taking children round to the school office to await collection there.

The newsletter comes out on Thursdays (fortnightly) and will include lots of information for parents and carers. Please make sure you have given us your latest contact details (email, phone number and address) so you can receive information.

If you need to call in at the school offices, please continue to wear a mask. Wishing you a happy start to term.

Kind regards,

Ms Slatcher

Head teacher

For the academic year 2020-21, we have reviewed our curriculum in order to identify and address 'missed' learning as a result of the National Schools Lockdown that occurred between March to July 2020. Our COVID Response Curriculum 2020-21 can be found above.
