A reminder to parents: dropping off and collecting children from school

It is really important for parents to continue to follow social distancing rules when dropping off and collecting their children.

Social distancing is vitally important to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Please remember that when dropping off or collecting children:

  • the adult must wear a mask whilst on site unless exempt;
  • ensure your child(ren) wash their hands (20 seconds = a thorough wash) before leaving home;
  • keep as socially distanced as possible from other parents and staff;
  • ensure only one adult per family collects and drops off your child/children (to help reduce the number of people at the school gate;
  • wear a face covering if you need to enter the office;
  • no siblings who are self-isolating are to accompany adults;
  • leave the site as promptly as possible.

Thank you.

Remember:

when we reduce our day-to-day contact with other people, we reduce the spread of the infection. We must:

  1. stay at home, except for specific purposes e.g. come to school;
  2. avoid meeting people we do not live with, except for specific purposes.

These new measures will reduce the growth rate of the virus, which will:

  • prevent the NHS from being overwhelmed;
  • ensure schools, colleges and universities can stay open;
  • ensure that as many people as possible can continue to work.

Thank you for helping to keep our St Peter’s family safe.

Remember - ‘Hands Face Space’

 Hands – wash your hands regularly and for 20 seconds.

 

  

 

Face – wear a face covering in indoor settings where social distancing may be difficult, and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet.

  

Space – stay 2 metres apart from people you do not live  with where possible, or 1 metre with extra precautions in place (such as wearing face coverings or increasing ventilation indoors).

We would like to share with you the thoughts of some of our parents

“I am so glad I chose St Peter’s for my little girl. As a 30th August baby, I was nervous about how she would settle but we had no problems and she is doing so well. It is such a nurturing place and feels like a village school in the middle of town! Even the head and deputy head knew her name within the first week, greeting us even now at the gates every day come rain or shine, and I feel so comfortable leaving her knowing she is so at home and cared for. She has loved her time there so far and is excited every day for what they have planned for her next. I have no doubt that this is the best start to her education that she could have had. Thank you St Peter’s!” (BH)

“St Peters is a fantastic school. It’s small and intimate and has some of the loveliest teachers. My daughter is thriving and I couldn’t recommend St Peters enough. My daughter loves going to St Peters every day.” (JH)

"St. Peters is a real gem! It’s a caring, nurturing environment with the loveliest of staff/teachers, who give so much attention to all the children."

"I was a nervous for my 4yr old bilingual daughter, starting school last year, but from the first days I realised that she is in the best possible hands! Year 1, now, she is thriving and simply adores her school!" (MM)

    'The Big Ask' and a message from the new Children's Commissioner
    Dear Parents, We would like to pass on a message to you from Dame Rachel de Souza, the Children’s Commissioner for England, asking you and your child to participate in The Big Ask. This is the largest ever survey of children in England, designed to find out what their concerns and aspirations about the future are. The Big Ask is now live at http://thebigask.uk/ A message from the Children's Commissioner: "The results from this survey will help me identify the barriers preventing children from reaching their potential, put forward solutions and set ambitious goals for the country to achieve. I need to reach as many children as possible through The Big Ask – the more I hear from, the stronger the results will be. Thank you in advance for helping me put children and young people at the heart of the country’s plans to rebuild for the future ."

    8th March
    Dear Parents We are really looking forward to seeing the children again next week when we welcome everybody back to school - we have missed them very much. Some children will be very excited to return, while others may be feeling a little anxious and have some worries. If you are concerned about your child(ren) and how they are going to make the transition back to school, please contact your child’s class teacher, either by emailing them directly or by emailing the school office. They can then make contact with you this week to discuss any worries and what can be put in place. Over the past few months, children may have grown out of some of their uniform or school shoes. If this is the case for you, please don’t worry if your child needs to wear an alternative item of clothing or pair of shoes / footwear from home. We really understand and appreciate that replacing these items is tricky at the moment. If anyone is struggling to pay for new uniform, please email or call Miss Wildish in the office as she has some good quality, second hand uniform that we can offer you. After school, tea-time & breakfast clubs will all be open from Monday 8th. It is important that we know numbers for these clubs in advance. Therefore, please can we ask all families who would like to book a place in these clubs next week, to email the school office by Thursday 4th March. Payment will need to be sent in at the start of next week. You will also receive a Ping message today about school meals next week. Please can you confirm, by Wednesday, your child’s lunch choices for next week. It is important that we receive a reply back from every family confirming their child’s choices. We will be in touch again nearer to re-opening with a few reminders for everyone. Kind regards

    Thank you and please keep going
    Dear Parents As we continue with our second week of home learning, we want to say a huge well done and thank you for all the support, time and effort you have given to the home learning partnership so far. It has been fantastic to see all of the children’s efforts and achievements. Every one of our families is in a different situation. There are those juggling home schooling whilst working from home at the same time, those home schooling multiple children all with different needs, whilst some families may be sharing devices and have more limited access to the internet. This is a hugely stressful time for home schooling parents whatever your circumstances and there will be days when it feels like an impossible task. However, the children’s continued learning at this time is so important and will allow them to continue their learning successfully when they return to school. Can we please urge you, therefore, to continue with the home learning that is being provided as much as is possible for you and your family situation. We really understand that it is not an easy time or task for many, but continuing with daily home learning through lockdown will support your child going forward in their future learning and their academic success. We want to support you as much as we possibly can. So if you have any questions about the work or if you experience difficulties accessing the home learning, please do let your child’s teacher know. If there is anything else we can help you with, please do not hesitate to ask. We thank you for your continued support in this aspect. Kind regards

    Important Update
    Following the Government briefing last night, the majority of children will now be learning at home until at least the February half term break. I recognise the difficulties and challenges this brings for parents as you try to juggle so many things, not least home learning. However, I also know that your children are amazing - they have shown such resilience and determination throughout the long months of Covid. So, coupled with your continued and much appreciated engagement and support, with all of us working together, we will get through this. As you will be aware, teachers prepared and delivered packs to your door and are now working hard to provide home teaching and learning via the class blogs. We thank you for your engagement with this. Whilst the continuation of learning is really important for the children, even more so is you and your child’s mental health during the coming weeks. If there is anything at all that we can do to further support you and your child(ren), please do not hesitate to get in contact, either with your class teacher via email or by contacting the school directly. We are here to support you as best we can. I would like to confirm that, to date, there have been no positive cases at St Peters Infant School in children, teaching or support staff. If this were to change going forward, we would continue to follow Government guidelines which would include contacting the affected / relevant bubble(s). Thank you for your tremendous support and engagement. Together we will see this through and I know that I speak on behalf of all of the staff when I say that we very much look forward to welcoming you all back again, hopefully in the not too distant future. Kind regards

About St Peter's Infants School

St Peter’s is a very friendly, supportive and nurturing school, where all members of the school community work as a team to make the time that the children spend with us positive and remembered fondly. We have high expectations for the children in our care, not only for academic success but in all aspects of their personal achievement. We firmly believe that children learn best and are most positive about their school experiences when they have high self-esteem, self worth and respect for others.

We aim to nurture the whole child and encourage them to work to the best of their ability in all aspects of school life - academically, socially and emotionally - thus equipping them to be valuable citizens of the future. St Peter’s aims to provide a broad, high quality education that helps the children develop into independent young people, able to apply their skills and knowledge to whatever lies ahead. We aim to develop in our children an enthusiasm for learning and positive attitudes that will enhance their self-esteem and that they will carry on with them into adulthood.

St. Peter’s has a strong philosophy of team work that is extended out to home. We seek to foster a strong home/school partnership that helps to build upon and consolidate the unique set of experiences that your child will bring to school.

We trust that you will find the information you require on our website and more.

If you would like a paper copy of any of the information contained on this website, please ask a member of the office staff.

St Peter’s is a GOOD School!

We are pleased to confirm that St Peter’s continues to be a GOOD school. 

It reflects the care, commitment, dedication and hard work of everyone (staff, children, Parents, Governors) that makes St Peter’s the great and unique school that it is.

 We are very proud of our school and are so pleased that Ofsted recognised the positive learning culture within it and that our pupils are well cared for and love to learn.

We continue to build on the work that is going on in school to further inprove outcomes for the children at St Peters.
