WELCOME

Welcome to Temple Sutton Primary School, part of the Learning in Harmony Trust.

We are immensely proud of our school community and everything it has to offer. We believe that education is a partnership between home and school, and therefore, we ask you to work with us in our drive for continuous improvement so that we can help your child to achieve their very best.  Throughout your time with us, there will be lots of opportunities to visit the school, get involved and express your views.  The closer we work together, the more we can achieve.

Our website will give you a first impression of Temple Sutton, and will provide useful updates for parents and carers.  Take some time to look around and if you are not able to find the information you are looking for, please contact the school office on info@templesutton.lihtrust.uk and a member of our team will be more than happy to help you.

Key Worker Provision starting Monday 8th June

Following the government announcement and new government guidance regarding the reopening of schools to children in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6, our key worker provision will be changing from Monday 8th June 2020. 

 

What are the changes?

 

Bubbles System 

Key worker children will now be placed into bubbles based on their age. Within each bubble there will be a fixed register of pupils and the same adults working with them each day.  Children within a bubble will not be permitted to mix with other bubbles. They will be expected to stay within their bubbles during playtimes, lunchtimes and any other outside activities. Children will not be able to change bubbles at any stage. 

 

Timings (8:30am - 4pm)

The provision will be available from 8.30am to 4.00pm. Children will have a staggered start and end time. Children must arrive at their allocated start time and they must be picked up at their allocated end time.  We are unable to offer extended provision any longer as staff will be needed to teach in the year groups we are opening the school to and we cannot provide before/after school club without mixing the bubbles.

Pick up and drop off 

In order to maintain social distancing rules and keep children, parents and staff safe, a one way entry and exit system will be  in place for parents dropping off and picking up children. Parents will need to come into school via the Lewes Road gates and follow the path round to the astro turf.  Children will line up by their room number (this is painted on the floor). They will need to line up on the two metre markings at drop off and pick up.   Parents will then need to continue down the path and will continue to walk through the school to the Norwich Road gate where they can exit the school grounds. (We will endeavour to maintain this routine regardless of the weather).  Parents should not wait with their children, nor should they speak to staff on the playground.  Parents will not be allowed into the school building and will need to phone if there are any queries. 

 

Lunchtime

Children should have a packed lunch.  Parents can opt to send in a packed lunch from home or order a school prepared one.  All children will be expected to bring their own named water bottle to school.

 

Uniform 

The guidance states: “there is no need for anything other than normal personal hygiene and washing of clothes following a day in an  educational or childcare setting.”

 

Therefore it is more important that children wear clothes that are easy to wash and that clothes are changed daily.  For this reason, the wearing of a school uniform is optional. Children should be dressed appropriately for a range of activities inside and outside. 

 

PE kits are not required at this time. 

 

These changes will come into effect from Monday 8th June.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. 

 

We thank you for your patience and understanding during this period.

New Intake

Due to the current situation, we are unfortunately unable to offer any further information on arrangements for the new intake. You will shortly be receiving correspondence from us, but in the meantime, we hope you find our website useful.

Supporting your child's learning

Our pupils love learning and we’d love to help you to find ways of keeping your children interested and engaged over the next few weeks. We do not want you to feel that our offer is placing an additional burden on your family. Please do what you can when you can, but concentrate first on making sure that your family is safe and happy. 

 

On our Learning @ Home section there is a choice of projects that you could do at home and is updated regularly. The link for the projects is here:

Learning @ Home

 

As previously mentioned, we will regularly be updating our websites with ideas and projects which you can encourage your children to do at home, but you should feel under no obligation to complete any of them within a particular time period. We are aware that you are parents and not educators and that you may well be overwhelmed by the prospect of supporting your child’s learning over the next few weeks. We aim to be there for you and hope to develop ways for you to receive help and guidance from teachers from our school and across the Learning in Harmony Trust. 

Thank you for your Support
