Key worker application and information

Key worker - school places information - NEW INFORMATION ADDED.

As we move into wider opening we need to ask you to very carefully consider if Friday is absolutely essential and only book if it is - Thank you.

During the lockdown it has been a real pleasure spending time with your  children. We now have to start to reintegrate back to normal school. Therefore, please can you support us with the following:

Do I still need to book a key worker place for my child who is in Nursery, Reception, Y1 or Y6?

Please Click Here to find the plan for children returning to school, along with the applications for places. 

If you require a key worker place up until the date your child's year group  will return to school, or for Fridays following that point, you must still apply using the key worker form below.

How will drop off and pick up work? 

In order to make school as safe as possible for children, staff and parents we need to feel very confident that everyone is abiding by the social distancing measures. Therefore, at this point:

  • Children must be accompanied by an adult at drop off
  • An adult must be present for pick up
  • Children will not be released to walk home alone
  • Anyone not abiding by this arrangement will not be permitted in school

It is essential that children arrive and are collected at their allocated time (it is highly unlikely that children will be admitted outside of their allocated times).  

We encourage parents and children to walk to school

We will operate a drop and go system:

  • Parents do not need to enter the playground - children enter by the ramped entrance
  • If driving is essential please drop and go in the bus lay-by (please don't park for longer than is necessary to drop off)  
  • Children's teacher will be visible on the playground to direct them to their rooms
  • At the end of the day children will leave via the gate next to Bethel once their accompanying adult is visible

 Social distancing is necessary at all times. 

What should my child wear?  

  • School jumper and T-shirt, leggings / jogging bottoms / shorts and trainers. 
  • Children will be outside more than ever so they’ll need a coat for cool or wet days. 
  • Sun hat and please apply sun cream before the children come.

What should / shouldn't  my child bring? 

  • A named water bottle.  
  • Planner.
  • A packed lunch (hygienically packed) if they are not having a school dinner. 
  • Please avoid bringing any bags including book bags / toys / mobile phones. 

What do I do if my child has medication? 

If your child requires an inhaler and you have previously filled a medical form in, please hand over your child’s named inhaler with your child. 

If your child requires recently prescribed medication, please complete the medical form (Click Here) and email it by midday the day before your child is due to start school -  h.appleton@htceschools.co.uk 

We are unable to accept any medication which is not prescribed, named or is without a completed medical form.  

If I need to contact school, what should I do?  

Firstly, check the website to see if your question can be answered there.  

Parents and visitors are not able to enter the school building. Access to the office staff is via telephone only.  

If you need to telephone, the school phone will be answered by a member of the admin team between the hours of 8:15 and 13:00.

Outside of telephone hours please email the admin team - admin@htceschools.co.uk
