26th August 2020 - AGP Update
Throughout the summer, School have continued to work with Pens Meadow, the LA, and health colleagues to try and ensure pupils who require Aerosol Generating Procedures (AGPs) have access to education when schools reopen next week. The Senior Leadership Team and Chair of Governors met yesterday and a follow up meeting was held with Jeremy Keeble (Interim Head of Education Outcomes and Inclusion) and Timothy Horsburgh (Clinical Executive - Dudley CCG) today. A proposal is being forwarded to Public Health for their approval. We will be in contact with those families impacted by the AGP guidance as soon as possible.
26th August 2020 - Arrival and Departure Update
School has changed the way in which the car park will operate in September. All vehicles will be asked to join the transport queue including parents who transport their child. We will operate two lines of traffic (one for each bubble). Vehicles will be asked to pull up onto the green lane by the member of staff on duty. Children in the primary bubble will enter school through the lower door and those in the secondary bubble will enter through the main hall door.
If your child comes to school on transport
School has requested that where possible children travel to school with others from the same bubble. In a morning we will have a staggered start with some vehicles arriving at 8.50am and others at 9.00am. At home time vehicles will leave at 2.50pm and 3.00pm. Routes and timings are overseen by the Local Authority transport department. They will contact you with individual details.
If you transport your child
We envisage that the car park will be extremely busy at the start and end of the day. We ask where possible that you arrive at 9.05am and 3.05pm. You will be asked to join the main queue. No onsite parking will be available during these times.
A copy of the updated carpark map and risk assessment can be seen below.
