We are really excited that you are joining us!
Your start date is Wednesday 2/9/20 at 8.50am.
You will enter school through the main reception where your form teachers and Miss Bamber are looking forward to meeting you. Your school day starts at 8.50am and while we know that you will be anxious to arrive early you should not arrive earlier than 8.30am in the morning because staff are not available before then to supervise you and keep you safe. Your school day ends at 2.50pm.
These instructions are to help you know what to expect and your teachers will all explain this to you when you start.
Year group areas:
Year 7 enter and exit school through reception. Your break areas are the gym and the tennis courts and your lunch area is the covered way and the big yard.
Your teaching rooms are 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 8.
You can purchase pre-packaged cold snacks and drinks at break from the gym.
When wet outside, you will stay in the gym. When dry outside you will be allowed into your designated outside areas (the tennis courts and the big yard).
There will be no need for you to take your bags and coats with you as you are likely to return to the same classroom. There will be no use of lockers during these times to prevent unnecessary equipment being brought into school, and to lower the risk of cross-contamination.
There will be 2 hot options and a selection of sandwiches.
There will be an expectation that you eat for the first 15 minutes of lunchtime and then either stay in your eating area or go outside to play.
Your lunch time is from 12.15pm until 12.45pm): you will go down the first set of stairs and straight to the covered way which is your eating area. Your outdoor play area will be the big yard. When lunch has finished you will go through the hall (via the big yard – if PE is on in the hall then staff will monitor your moving across the rear of the hall) and back up the first set of stairs to your classroom.
