Return to School September 2020

1st September 2020

Dear Parents

As we prepare for a full return for all pupils to LCPS on Thursday 3rd September, please find information below, as promised, detailing where each year group will enter and exit school and at what times.

You will note that start and finish times have changed and this is to ensure we are following all of the Government guidance to ensure that congestion in school corridors and cloakrooms is kept to a minimum as well as limiting the number of parents we have on site at any time. Please ensure that any other adults involved in the collection and drop off your children are aware of the new arrangements and that you only have 1 adult collecting or dropping children off at school.

We also need you to ensure you are as prompt as possible at both the start and end of the school day as children from different year groups will not be allowed at the office.

We completely appreciate that for the first couple of days, everyone will need a little help with this and so there will be lots of adults around at the front of school to support families with the new times and entrances as follows:

For our youngest children who are just starting their journey at Linthorpe in Nursery and Little Learners, the times above will be in effect once the individual transition sessions are completed by 28.9.20. Reception children will all adopt the start/finish times above from 14.9.20 onwards. There may be a small number of parents who have a waiting time of 15 minutes or longer between dropping off/collecting children from different year groups. Where this causes a problem, please email school via contact@linthorpeprimary.co.uk and where possible, we will try to accommodate an individual arrangement for your family.

All of the staff are very much looking forward to seeing you all again for the start of a new school year. In the meantime you may want to read the guidance for parents from the Government by following this link gov.uk/backtoschool.

With Regards

Mrs Lymer
