Welcome to

St Richard's R.C. Primary School

FULL SCHOOL RE-OPENING ON MONDAY 8th MARCH

We are delighted that St Richard’s RC Primary School will re-open for all pupils on Monday 8th March 2021. Attendance is mandatory and all parents are expected to send their child to school from Monday 8th March 2021 onwards. Entry and exit times and procedures for pupils from Monday 8th March are very similar to the arrangements we had in place when we re-opened in September 2020. From Monday 8th March at the start of the day:

(Parents and carers must wear a face mask or covering when they drop off their child(ren). Parents and carers will not be allowed onto the school site without an appointment).

Children in Nursery must enter school through the Nursery gate on Sutcliffe Avenue between 8.50am and 8.58am. A member of staff will be on duty at the gate.

Children in R1, R2, C1, C2, C3 and C4 must enter school through the main gate on Sutcliffe Avenue between 8.30am and 8.58am. A member of staff will be on duty at the gate.

Children in C5, C6, C8, C12 and C13 must enter school through the gate on Wilpshire Avenue between 8.30am and 8.58am. A member of staff will be on duty at the gate.

Children in C7, C9, C10 and C11 must enter school through the gate on Norton Avenue between 8.30am and 8.58am and then enter class via their classroom’s outside door. A member of staff will be on duty at the Norton Avenue gate.

It is vitally important that pupils are always picked up on time. Parents and carers who are collecting children in more than one class where pick-up times clash must prioritise the collection of younger pupils.

PLEASE WEAR A MASK AT THE GATES – It is vital that all parents and carers wear a mask or other face covering every time they drop off and pick their children up. This is to reduce the risk of transmission at the school gates and is designed to protect everyone – parents, children and our staff. If you have an exemption from wearing a mask, please let a member of staff know. If you do not, please wear one.

SCHOOL UNIFORM EXPECTATIONS – Please send your child(ren) back to school in full school uniform. Pupils must not wear earrings (or any other jewellery) from Monday 8th March. Girls may wear smart school trousers, grey or black tights (white tights with summer uniform after the Easter holidays) or grey, black or white socks. Leggings or footless tights are not part of our school uniform and should not be worn. No make-up or nail varnish is allowed. Smart black school shoes and school ties are required for all pupils until Summer uniform may be worn after the Easter break. Our full current school uniform policy is available here: School Uniform Policy

RETURNING SCHOOL LAPTOPS – If you have borrowed a school laptop, we do want it back but please do not return it to school on Monday 8th March. Further instructions will follow.

RETURNING CGP BOOKS AND ENRICHMENT WORK – Similarly, we want all children to return the CGP workbooks which were posted out in early January (and enrichment projects completed by pupils) but please do not return these to school on Monday 8th March. Further instructions will follow.

With many thanks for your continuining support and looking forward to being back together again,
