Under the government’s current plans for September, all Falkland pupils are permitted to start and end their school day at the same time. Our expectations are that all pupils will be in class by 8.55am with registers closed at 9am.

We noticed during lockdown that there is a much calmer start to the children’s day when they walk in independently to their classes. The children have also shown signs of maturity and independence. As we have made so much progress in this regard, we would like this procedure to continue.

From September, your child can be dropped at either the back or the front gate but we suggest that KS2 pupils (Y3,4,5,6) use the back gate. In the opening weeks in September, the gates will be opened at 8.30am with the view of opening at 8.40am from the first week in October as pupils get used to coming in together. Also, to support transition for our year 3 pupils, staff will meet and greet at the back gate.

Year 2 pupils are encouraged to come through the front gate on their own, however, if they need adult support, parents are welcomed to drop off in class until the first week in October.

Parents of Reception and Year 1 pupils will be allowed to walk their children to their classes, should they wish.

Please donot enter the building but drop at the classroom door.

At the end of the day, 3.15pm parents of pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 can collect their children from their child’s classes.

If you have two children in KS1, please pick up your youngest child first. If you have children in both KS1 and KS2, pick up your youngest child first and then arrange a meeting point on a KS2 playground before making your way out through the front gate. We will continue to dismiss Years 3,4,5 & 6 from the back gate at 3.15.

Year 3 to the left handside and Yar 4 to the right handside. 

We shall continue to operate our one-way system around the main building.

To minimise visitors on site, the office will remain closed for face to face visits. You may continue to ring or email the office. Additionally, the front reception area has been used to run intervention support groups and we would like to keep this additional space to continue this targeted support

Thank you for helping us keep your children safe.


Collect lateral flow tests from Newbury Showground for your households

As a school we are asked to collect the following information for pupils and members of their families who are showing symptoms that require a    Covid-19 test. This is required for all children, whether in school or remote learning, and we would be grateful if parents could still continue to send this information to us:

  • Child's name and class
  • Person affected (child/parent/sibling/close contact - no other names required)
  • Symptoms and date they first appeared
  • Date of test
  • Date of result
  • Result of test (positive/negative)

Many thanks for all your help.
