Our Week - 6th-10th September 2021

Sunday 12 September 2021

Dear Parents and Carers,

Our first week of 21/22 has drawn to a close, and it is safe to say it has been the smoothest I can remember in my tenure at Oval. 

We are working to provide your children with the most natural and normal school experience whilst maintaining a clear and sensible approach to keeping everyone safe. 

We are keeping hygiene standards as high as possible. We have maintained a loose separation system in school and our day janitor service. However, we can not be blind to the fact that Croydon has the highest infection rate in London. As such, we understand any anxiety you may have and encourage you to discuss that with us to allay those fears.
Your children's attendance at school is imperative for us to make the most meaningful impact with the educational programmes we will be running at school.

LINE ETIQUETTE - Please respect each other and the requests of the school

Would you please use the entirety of the arrival window DONT all arrive at 1530 - we have cleared the line every day by 1535 - if you arrive at 1540, there is no line!

Respect the line - don't push in - if you are causing an issue in the line, you are compromising the safety of the academy community. We will take the matter seriously. 

Please move through the site quickly and do not stop for social reasons or provide snacks or adjust clothing for your child. They can wait the 3 minutes until you are offsite; the people are waiting behind you in the line can not. 

COVID Plans:

Please ensure you inform us as quickly as possible if you keep your child out of school with suspected symptoms. Check with the school office if you are in any doubt about the new restrictions.
