Monday 1st June 2020
Dear members of the Polygon School community,
From today, the school will be inviting a few more children into the school premises.
These children will be in addition to those who have been accessing childcare in school during the lock down.
At Polygon, the vast majority of families, for the time being, would prefer to keep their children safe, and those children will stay at home, continuing to access on-line learning.
No family will be penalised for wanting to keep their child at home.
The Governors have taken steps to ensure that those people using the school building are as safe as they possibly can be.
Temperatures will be taken from every person entering the building. Those with a high temperature will be returned home.
Children moving around the building will be limited, with most pupils spending the majority of their lessons in the same classroom.
Pupils will be issued with their own personal equipment for writing and drawing, to try to reduce the risk of cross contamination.
An additional member of domestic staff will be employed to be a continual cleaning presence in all communal areas.
Social distancing will be practiced. Doors to most rooms will remain opened, so that there is little need to use door handles. Hand washing will be an expectation at the start of each lesson.
I want to thank all of the parents/ carers who have been supportive of the school during this difficult time. The staff have worked together to try to ensure that everyone in our school community has been looked after, and kept informed about developments.
During your weekly phone calls, please let the staff know if you would prefer your child to stay at home.
Please keep checking the school website for messages.
Above all, stay safe.
