School Day

September 2020 Opening Arrangements 


With the recent government announcements, everyone at Moss Hall was delighted to hear that we will be able to welcome all the children back into school in September – we have missed them. We know that many of you will have questions about how this might work and the letter below aims to explain as much as we can at this stage. The good news is that we have learnt a lot from the partial reopening during the summer term and this has helped adjust our risk assessments for re-opening both schools fully on Monday 7th September.

Of course there will be plenty that needs to be caught up on academically, and re-establishing rules and routines and focusing on the emotional and mental wellbeing of the children will be integral to their successful integration into school life. Many children came back to school in June and it was reassuring to see how they quickly understood some of the new safety rules and established a new ‘normal’. With that in mind please find below some more details of the plans for our September wider re-opening:

Our School Day


The school day starts at 9.00am and finishes at 3.15pm. Children must be in their classrooms by 9am for registration.Children arriving after this time will be recorded as late and should be registered at the school office.
Children in Reception have lunch from 11.45 am to 1.00pm. Y1 children have their lunch from 12.00 to 1.10 pm.  Y2 children have their lunch from 12:15pm to 1.30pm.
Drop-off and collection
At the beginning and end of the school day, parents should enter via the playground. At the end of the day please wait in the shelter outside the classrooms at 3.15 pm.
End of School Day
The children are dismissed from the window area when the teacher has seen their adult. If anyone other than you is collecting your child this needs to be written in the ‘Going Home Book’ which is located on the class cloakroom notice board.
If you know you will be late due to unforeseen circumstances, please always telephone the school and give an estimated time of arrival so that your child doesn’t get anxious.
Travelling to school
To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option! There are lots of benefits: it’s healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety of pedestrians and road-users, and it respects nearby residents. If you do need to travel by car, please park considerately.
