Welcome to Mauldeth Road Primary School
Welcome to our Mauldeth Road Primary School Website. We hope that you find it easy to navigate and that any information you need is accessible. If not, please do let us know!
IMPORTANT CHANGE TO ENTRANCES AND EXITS
From Monday morning we are changing the policy on entrances and exits at the school.
The works going on on Talbot Road and Mauldeth Road have made the streets around school dangerous and, in my view, it is wrong to ask parents to bring children along Talbot Road, in particular.
If you are now using the infant yard one way system, then starting on Monday, please observe the following changes:
In the mornings only, please bring your children into school at the Mauldeth Road gate and then leave by the Talbot Road gate
In the afternoons please come in by the Talbot Road gate and take the children out using the Mauldeth Road gate.
If you use Aubrey Road there are no changes.
This does not make Talbot Road any safer, but at least gives parents the option of avoiding having to take children along what is currently a very dangerous route.
Please inform anyone who collects or drops off your children of these changes. In the meanwhile I am raising the issue of safety on Talbot Road with the City Council.
Thank you for your co-operation and patience!
Re-opening After Lockdown
At long last, on Monday, 8th March, we plan to re-open the school to all children.
I know that this will be very welcome news to many of you after the challenges of remote learning and it will be great to see children back, in school, where they rightfully belong.
We plan to re-open on the same basis as in September, with the same start and end times for classes and the same drop off and collection points as when the children were last in school. It is really important, for all of us, that we do not come back with a complacent attitude towards the virus. Therefore, we intend to have the same safety systems in place as before, with as much sanitising and social distancing as we can manage.
The greatest risk is from contact between adults and so we do ask that parents strictly observe distancing and one-way systems at the start and end of each day. Please communicate with teachers through Dojo rather then by face to face conversations as much as you possibly can. Please also ensure that if we have any concern that your child may have symptoms that you can be readily contacted and prepared to take them for a test. Similarly, if anyone at home has symptoms, please do not send children into school. We will maintain remote education if anyone has to self-isolate.
We will return with gentle activities, as children find their way back into our routines and procedures after such a long time away. However, we would like to reassure you that the overwhelming majority of children settled back in very quickly after the last lockdown, both socially and academically.
We look forward to seeing everyone back in school next week!
The area around school is heavily congested. Please try to park away from school and walk in. Please do not park on Aubrey Road or near to the school crossing patrols. Please also avoid mounting the kerb, as it is really dangerous for pedestrians when car doors are opened.
