Sandown School

Welcome to Sandown!  

 

Dear Parents and Carers                                                                            Friday, 22nd January 2021

We have been pleased and proud that All DEALT schools have delivered provision for vulnerable children and children of critical workers during the third national lockdown, and I would like to thank you all for only using this when absolutely necessary.

After discussion with DEALT Trustees and Heads, we would like to give you advanced warning that this provision will not continue during the February Half Term Break (Monday 15.02.21 - Friday 19.02.21), as it did in previous lockdowns.  This decision reflects current DFE and KCC Guidance and we wanted to ensure you had plenty of time to make alternative arrangements for child care.

This will enable all school staff to have time to refresh and recharge, ready to meet the challenges of Term 4.  If DFE guidance significantly changes in the near future, DEALT will look to see how this can be implemented.  Thank you for your ongoing support.                                       Jo Hygate, DEALT CEO

 

Key Worker and Vulnerable children provision

Currently, Sandown school is closed for all year groups. We are open for pre-booked Key Worker children and those considered to be vulnerable.  If you are a Key Worker and need to reserve a place for them please complete the form below. Mrs Horrocks will be in contact with you if your child falls into the vulnerable category.  It is important that you complete a form for each of your children needing a place.

If you are a Keyworker, then we ask that you only send your child into school as a last resort and if there is no one else available to care for them.  Current guidance states: Children with at least one parent or carer who is a critical worker can go to school or college if required, but parents and carers should keep their children at home if they can.

The booking form will open on a Monday morning and close at 5pm on a Wednesday

for the following week. 

From Monday 11th January a hot school meal will be available to order each day at school. Children may also bring a packed lunch if they would prefer.  Please can Children wear their School uniform. PE kit on normal days.  We will only be opening the 2 main Golf Road entrances. These will be open between 8.40am and 9.00am for drop off and 3.05pm and 3.15 pm for pick up.
