As we continue to navigate through the Covid 19 pandemic we continue to take the necessary precautionary measures for our staff, pupils and visitors.
Our priority is to deliver face-to-face, high-quality education to all pupils. The evidence is clear that being out of education causes significant harm to educational attainment, life chances, mental and physical health.
At English Martyrs’ Primary School we will continue to have some measures in place in order to protect everyone and ask that you continue to support us in ensuring we all remain safe and well.
School gates open at 8.40 am every day and all children are expected to be in class by 8.55 am ready for the start of the school day.
The table below shows home times for each year group as well as pick up places:
The following measures will remain in place in school:
Face coverings help protect the wearer and others against the spread of infection because they cover the nose and mouth, which are the main confirmed sources of transmission of COVID-19.
At English Martyrs’ Primary school coverings are encouraged to be worn by staff and adults (including visitors). Health advice continues to be that children in primary schools should not be asked to wear face coverings.
Face coverings do not need to be worn when outdoors.
We will continue to use Microsoft Teams for weekly homework and for any children who are self-isolating due to Covid-19 related reasons.
