As the children will not be using the cloakrooms or lockers, they will be storing their coats on the back of their chairs. We have had to move some furniture out of classrooms to ensure that the children can sit side by side in rows rather than in table groups. As such there is limited space for additional belongings and we would like to remind parents that the children should not bring a bag to school as there is nowhere to store them. Unfortunately, when some children brought rucksacks to school in the Autumn term they became trip hazards in the classrooms.
Please send the children into school with a coat, water bottle and lunchbox if they don't have a school meal. When the children need to bring their reading and home learning book into school, they could use a small cloth / plastic bag which could then be folded and stored in their drawer or coat pocket during the school day.
