Children are to be dropped off through the gate on Frankby Road and parents are to exit
through the gate in the direction of the Junior school – a one way system. We ask that only
one adult accompanies their child to school and for parents to adhere to the 2 metre
socially distancing rules. There will be staggered drop off and collection times to ensure that
appropriate social distancing can be maintained. We ask that parents do not congregate by the school gates and that you follow social distancing guidelines.

fountain available in school. We must insist at this time that no other items are brought into
school e.g. toys. Items such as reading books will not be sent home. We also ask that
children do not wear shoes with laces, if they cannot tie them themselves.
To adhere to our risk assessment, and to keep our children and staff safe, we are no longer
able to provide assistance, eg hand holding, to support children coming into school. Please
speak to your child regarding this so that they understand.
Please also find below the addendum to our Behaviour Policy which is in line
with Government guidance. All members of our Black Horse Hill community must adhere to
this to ensure safety for everyone.
The daily timetable for children will look different to a typical school day as safety remains
our utmost priority. Children will be allocated to a ‘bubble’ that will be led by two members
of staff. This may or may not be a teacher or teaching assistant that your child was taught by
before lockdown. Each bubble will have a classroom base (again, it may not be your child’s
usual room) and they will remain here for the day, including their allocated lunchtime. Children will have lots of opportunities to learn and play outdoors.
We will be following government guidance about the use of PPE. There may be occasions for
example when supporting an ill child or administering first aid that staff may need to wear a
face covering or visor as shown below.
