We look forward to welcoming all pupils back to school on September 2nd 2020. In accordance with government advice, the school has implemented a range of measures and policies to ensure that pupils and staff can return to school in a COVID secure manner.

In order to ensure the safety of our staff and pupils the school has conducted an extensive assessment and compiled a detailed risk assessment. You will notice many changes to the normal school day in order to adhere to the social distancing guidelines. Full details can be found in the “Autumn return to school to school policy” below. These include:

  • Timed staggered pick-up and drop-off times with supermarket-style 2m apart a queuing system
  • A new bubble system to prevent the spread of any new illness
  • School buildings closed to everyone except staff and pupils
  • Handwashing and hygiene controls for every pupil prior to entering school

Please be aware that we have vulnerable pupils and staff among our school community. We would like to impress upon all families the importance of minimising risks and following both school and government guidance in order to keep all members of The Pointer School Community safe.
