What to bring to school - Information for September

Devon County Council Back to School Bulletin - 26.08.2020

We are looking forward to welcoming everyone back in September, subject to Government guidance. In order to settle the children in successfully we will be putting the following measures in place, as detailed in the letters below:

  • Staggered start days - in the best interests of the children and in line with our risk assessment the start of term will be staggered by Family Group House Teams. Pupils in Torridge and Tavy will come back to school on Monday 7th and Tuesday 8th September; Pupils in Tamar and Taw will come back on Wednesday 9th and Thursday 10th September. All pupils will come in together for the full day on Friday 11th September. This will ensure that pupils are not overwhelmed on their initial return to school and allow expectations to be established.

  • Staggered start times - these will be in place for the foreseeable future, in line with our risk assessment, to allow for adequate social distancing between adults and children at drop off and collection points (details in the letter below).

  • Friday afternoon closure - due to the current situation, we are unable to continue with our very successful 'Enrichment Programme' at this time. Therefore, parents are requested to collect their children two hours before the end of the usual school day unless they have indicated that childcare is required. We hope to re-introduce our Friday afternoon enrichment activity sessions as soon as it is safe to do so and Government guidance allows.

  • Family Project (Breakfast and After School Club) will be running from September but places will be limited so we advise parents to book promptly to avoid disappointment.
