Day one complete!

Dear Parents/Carers,

We have had a lovely day. When I say ‘we’ I mean not only the children, but all Newdale teams too! It was an absolute pleasure seeing the smiles and hearing the laughter. I hope the reports you have had from your children reflect what we have seen in school today.

Some points to remember…

Drop off

Please remember we are opening the gates between 8:30 am until 9 am. It was very busy at 8.30 am and registers do not close until 9 am. If you have not got to rush off to work, then coming slightly later would be safer for you and us.

The one way system worked well. We know that it is a long way around for some, but alas it is all we can do at this time to help with reducing infection levels. Remember that adult to adult transmission is the highest when looking at risk. There will be some tiny tweaks to the one way system tomorrow and staff will guide you.

Pick up

Thank you to all parents who helped to keep the one way system running smoothly at home time. Our gates open at approximately 3 pm, to allow for you to collect your child. There will be some tiny tweaks tomorrow and staff will guide you.

PE

The system where children come in dressed in PE kit on PE days works well. Check out the website for confirmation of your child’s PE days.

Playtime/lunchtime

The lunchtime team did a tremendous job today. It is not easy getting 500 + children through lunch in an hour! Again, we have a few tweaks to the system which we will put in place tomorrow.

Illness

At this time of the year there are usually still quite a few bugs around, but as you know we need to be overly cautious for the sake of everyone else. Do not be offended or surprised if you get a call about your children’s health. We need to double check everything and rule out the virus as much as we possibly can.

Thank you for your ongoing support.
