School Day - September 2020
Breakfast School Care - from September 2020
John Burns Primary School offers Breakfast School Care for working parents.
It is open from 7:30am until your child's year group starts the school day. This service is open to children in all year groups - Nursery to Year 6.
School Day from September 2020
The school day will be staggered from September for different year groups (Full time Nursery to Year 6). It is crucial that you keep to these timings, and do not arrive too early or late.
The children will line up on designated markers (with 1m social distancing) on the playground.
Class teachers will come out to the playground to collect their class at the beginning of the day. Class teachers will bring their class out to the playground at the end of the day.
Parents cannot enter the school building (this includes the school office, classrooms and dinner hall).
Only one parent is permitted onto the playground.
Once your child is lined up, please stand back and allow your child to be directed by their class teacher or teaching assistant. You will be politely asked to leave the school grounds. This is to avoid congestion and overcrowding.

Part-time Nursery pupils attend either the first half or second half of the week.
Year Group Entry and Exit Gates
We have two school gates on Wycliffe Road. The gate that most parents enter (with the intercom entry system) is the main gate. We also have a double gate positioned between the gazebo and garden area.
Both the main gate and double gate will be opened at the beginning and end of the school day.

A hot meal will be provided for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 pupils entitled to a Universal Free School Meal (UIFSM).
The hot meal menu for the autumn term 2020 can be found by clicking here.
KS2 pupils bringing in a packed lunch will eat lunch in the main school hall.
All other pupils will eat lunch in the dinner hall.

Teaching Assistants supervise the children at lunchtime.
In order to maintain social distancing during pupil social times, the playgrounds will be zoned. It is really important that your child stays within the area that they are told to.
After School Care
After School Clubs led by teachers/teaching assistants and sports coaches will not run during the first half of the autumn term. We hope to be able to offer After School Clubs after the autumn half term.
The school will continue to offer After School Care provision which runs until 5:45pm.
Please be advised that we will not allow any child to be collected by an unfamiliar adult or sibling under 16 years of age.
At the start of each school year in September parents and carers are required to let us know the names of any adults with permission to pick up their child.
Children must be picked up from school by one of these adults, unless they are in Year 5/Year 6 and you have provided us with 'Walk Home Alone Consent' that your child is able to walk home alone at the end of the school day.
The 'Walk Home Alone Consent' form is available from the School office.
