September Consultation Risk Assessment
Our final version Risk Assessment for September is now available to view.

June Opening
Recently we have been working hard on the steps we can take to prepare the school and the staff to open, part-time, for some children. There is alot to do, and your children are too precious for us to not do this as well as we can.

Our risk assessments are listed below so that you can make a more informed choice, when we are ready to open for your child, about whether or not you want your child to attend. We have also put some photographs on the website (see above) to help your child prepare for how different school will be.

School Re-Opening Frequently Asked Questions

When can my child come to school?

We expect that the first groups of children will be able to come to school in the next few weeks. We want to make sure school is safe before we re-open. We will send a text out to parents when we know a date and put the information on our school website. When we are ready children will be allocated to either a morning or afternoon hub. The first Year groups we will be open for are nursery, F2, Year 1 and Year 6.

What if I need Childcare?

We can still provide places for children in Years 2, 3, 4 and 5 for children of keyworkers and vulnerable children if they are pre-booked and we have places. Children of key workers from other Year Groups can belong either to the Childcare hub or a hub for their year group. Unfortunately they cannot belong to both.

What about Breakfast Club and After School Clubs?

At the moment we are unable to offer these clubs.

What should my child bring to school?

Just themselves (in their school uniform which should be washed each day), their personal water bottle, a coat if needed, and a packed lunch if needed. Children MUST NOT bring any PE kit, personal items or golden time toys.

What if my child is just a bit poorly-can they still come to school?

No. At this time we are advising that children should come to school only if they are completely well. If anyone in your household has coronavirus symptoms they must be tested, and everyone in the household should stay at home and self-isolate.

How will you keep my child safe?

We have carried out a thorough risk assessment for children returning to school. New measures include:

  • Grouping children into small hubs-up to 15 children with one or two Crosby adults who may not be their usual teachers. Children in the hub do not mix with other children. They have their own classroom, toilet and playtimes.
  • In the classroom, children in Years 1 and 6 are seated at tables by themselves, so that they are spaced out around the classroom. When the weather is good, the children are outside as much as possible. Children in nursery and F2 will be encouraged to space themselves out whilst playing and learning.
  • In Years 1 and 6, the children have their own resources pack so they do not need to share pencils, crayons, etc. with another child.
  • Children are supported to wash and dry their hands thoroughly throughout the day.
  • Additional cleaning: all classrooms, toilets and equipment are thoroughly cleaned before being used again (i.e. cleaned in the middle of the day between a morning hub and an afternoon hub).
  • Children will not be going to assembly or the dinner hall so that they don’t mix with children from other hubs.
  • There is a “window” of time for children to arrive at school and be picked up so that parents and children do not have to be in a crowd at the beginning or end of the school day.
  • Please note there may not be a crossing patrol so take extra care on the way to school and back home.

What happens about dinners?

  • No hot meals will be served. All children in F2 and Year 1 are provided with a free school packed lunch. Children in nursery and Year 6 who are eligible for free school meals, will be provided with a free school packed lunch. Other children will need to bring a packed lunch from home (if they are in an afternoon hub) or purchase a school packed lunch through ParentPay.
  • Children in a morning hub will be provided with a packed lunch to take home, if they are eligible for free school meals (this includes all children in F2 and Year 1)

What if my child feels ill in school?

If your child feels ill, school staff will contact you. It is very important that we have contact numbers that we can reach you on while your child is at school. If your child displays coronavirus symptoms, they will be moved away from other children while we wait for you to collect them. You must then arrange for your child to have a coronavirus test, so that we know if other children and staff in their “hub” need to self-isolate.

What happens if another child or adult in my child’s hub tests positive for coronavirus?

As soon as we know this, we will contact you so that all the children and adults in that hub can self-isolate for 14 days.

Does my child HAVE to come back to school if I don’t want them to?

The government is encouraging eligible children to come back to school. However, it has also said that families will not be fined if they choose to keep their child at home.

What about social distancing?

We will encourage the children to play and learn separately but cannot guarantee social distancing of children within a hub. We expect all adults on site to practise social distancing when dropping off and collecting their children. On narrow paths there are markings and a one way system to help with this. Please limit the number of adults coming onto our site as far as safely possible (i.e. one parent, not two). Access to the main office foyer is permitted only one family at a time. We will not be accepting cash payments. Please use telephone (01724 844216) and email (admin.crosbyprimary@northlincs.gov.uk) to contact us where possible.
