Welcome to our School

Return to School September 2020

Welcome back 

I am pleased to let you know that we have followed the Government guidance to take the steps that are required in order to reduce the risk of virus transmission at Fairstead Primary School so that we can welcome back all children to school next week.

This letter summarises our arrangements and also details how you can help us by working together to keep everyone safe.

See below information that will help you and your child prepare for the September return to school during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

More information and advice for parents and carers can be found here


Back to school - 7th September 2020

There will be different start and end times for different year groups.  This is so that we can attempt to prevent clusters of adults forming and to allow for quick and easy drop off and collection.

Year Group Drop Off Collection
Nursery 8.45am – 8.55am 3.00pm
Reception 8.45am – 8.55am 3.00pm
1 8.45am – 8.55am 3.00pm
2 8.45am – 8.55am 3.00pm
3 8.45am – 8.55am 3.00pm
4 8.35am – 8.45am 3.15pm
5 8.35am – 8.45am 3.15pm
6 8.35am – 8.45am 3.15pm

We have a new school gate that was installed over the summer which will lock automatically at 8.55am.

If you have siblings in year groups that have different timings you can still drop them off at their classroom straight away to avoid having to wait.

We have had a lot of new equipment installed over the summer especially in the Early Years area.  Please do not allow your child to play on any equipment before or after school.
