Translation of guidance for parents and carers on early years providers, schools and colleges in the autumn term
We have translated our guidance for parents and carers with children in nursery, school, or college in the autumn term.
The guidance is now available in the following languages:
September 2020 (All subject to Government changes)
School Premises Closed to Parents
Similar to what we are doing now, the school building (including the school office) will remain closed to parents. If you have any enquiries, please call on 01202 513981 or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Monday 7th September
For one day only, children will go to their original classes. On the 7th they will be told who their new teachers are and where to start from on the 8th September.
From September, we are a “cashless” school. With the continuing concerns regarding COVID-19, we are unable to take any payments in school.
Any payments must be made online via your Scopay account. If you do not have an account, please email email@example.com and we will try and email your account details to you.
There will be no hot meals from September, this is temporary whilst COVID-19 continues. Packed lunches will be ordered for you. As always, you are welcome to provide your own lunch if you wish.
Talbot Stars (Breakfast and Afterschool Club)
Talbot Stars will continue from September. Bookings are online only and are again available from your Scopay account. Please note there is a limit of 30 per morning session and 30 per afternoon session.
No payment / booking – no place.
If you need a Scopay code - email the office as soon as possible
There will be no extra-curricular clubs after school clubs until further notice. We will update you when we have an idea when they can restart.
Full winter uniform with the appropriate shoes (no boots). P.E kits to be worn into school on the days you have P.E – no changing in school.
