RE: Year 4 leavers arrangements

Dear Year 4 parent,

For our end of year plans we have reviewed the current guidance and the school risk assessment and believe, that at the time of writing this, we are able to hold a leavers coffee morning under certain restrictions. I am sure you can appreciate that I share this in good faith but that things may change at any point up to and including the day itself.

We plan to hold the event on the school field. There will be a tent erected so we are able to continue even if the weather is not on our side. Numbers are limited to ensure we stay within the guidelines. Therefore, only ONE PARENT PER CHILD will be allowed. Parents are to arrive at the allocated times set out below to reduce the need to queue. Each parent will be given an allocated seat number prior to the day. Please wear your face mask until you are sat in your chair. Parents will not be able to access the school building during the morning. We have organised to have refreshments and will provide these at the start.

Once everyone is set and ready, at approximately 9:30am we will bring the children out from their classrooms. The children will perform some of their favourite songs and there will be a short presentation. During the presentation we will have an allocated area for parents to take a photograph should you wish. Inline with school policy, we ask that you do not take pictures of any other children or during the children’s performance. The children will then return to their classrooms. Parents will be asked to leave using the gate on to Drumoyne Gardens.

To remain as fair as possible, seats will be allocated by putting children’s names in a hat and then pulling them out, giving each child a corresponding number to a chair. This will be communicated to you prior to the day. Please do not move your seat from its allocated position. This will facilitate any track and trace requests should there be any need.
I appreciate this isn’t quite what we had all hoped for but these plans enable us to give our year 4’s a send-off, albeit scaled down.
I hope you can support us with these measures and look forward to seeing you on Thursday 15th July.

Entrance times
Class 9 – 9:00 – 9:10
Class 10 – 9:15 – 9:25

Thank you in advance for your co-operation,

Mr T Jones
