Pick up and drop off Timetable (subject to change as guidance dictates)
These changes will help to reduce the number of parents gathering in close proximity waiting for classes to come out. Entrance to the front playground will be through the small pedestrian gate and the exit through the car gate. At this time, can we ask that no dogs come to school or are tied at gates.
All children will be collected in single classes from the front playground. There are dots for parents to stand on and children will come and find you. You will then need to leave promptly, allowing the next class to be collected. Please wait to enter until a senior member of staff calls you in. If you have siblings, please remain on your dot until all are with you and then leave.
Please see the latest documents issued by the Trust and Clutton Primary School with information about reopening to all children in March 2021 (click on the images to open the links)

If you or your child feels unwell, please call or email the school office directly before the start of the school day. Please describe the symptoms your child has and what you are doing - i.e. resting at home, making a doctor's appointment, or in the case of presenting with Coronavirus symptoms, self isolating and arranging for a test.
The guide below details Coronavirus symptoms and offers clear instructions as to what to do if you, your child or someone in your household shows any of those symptoms. The guide also has details around self isolation.

Testing in School
As detailed in our risk assessment above, following government guidelines Staff will continue to test with LFDs twice a week at home. Primary age pupils will not be tested with LFDs. Public Health England have advised there are currently limited public health benefits attached to testing primary pupils with lateral flow devices.
There has been an announcement from the Government about testing at home using kits which are being sent out by the NHS. Please click on the link below to find out all the relevant information:
The tests are primarily for adults in the household (secondary aged children are being tested via their own schools and primary aged children are NOT being tested), so that if anyone tests positive you can isolate your family immediately and not send your children to school.
Any questions please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Since returning to full school opening in September 2020, class teachers have completed a well being quetionnaire with all children. These have helped children to reflect on their experience of returning to school after a long absence, and helps staff to put appropriate nurture and circle times in place.
|KS1 Questionnaire||KS2 Questionnaire|
Results of the Questionnaires
The vast majority of children are feeling positive about their return to school. Those who are feeling sad, said they will miss time spent with their family and pets, and felt sad saying goodbye to their previous class teacher.
As part of the DfE catch up funding grant, the school has invested in tools to help deliver a meaningful Personal Social Health Education (PSHE) curriculum.
Scroll down Our Curriculum page to find out more about how PSHE learning is incorporated in everyday school life throughout your child's time at Clutton Primary School.
If you have any questions about your child's well being following the return to school, please contact the school office. For more links on family and parent support, please have a look at our Community Links page.
