One way system for drop off at the church (Upper School and sibling groups)

  • Children in Sycamore and Oak bubbles must use this entry and exit point
  • We have a one-way system in place with signage
  • Please can all families observe social distancing (cones will support this)
  • Sibling Groups:
  • Families with siblings in both lower and upper school should drop their children together (8:45am if elder sibling is in Oak, 8:50am if elder sibling is in Sycamore)
  • Families with siblings in both lower and upper school should collect them from this gate (we will start releasing the children from 3:15pm starting with Elm class then Ash class then finally Birch class - releasing them in waves is to try and avoid any mixing of 'bubbles' as per the guidance.  We will do this as swiftly as we can)
