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!
WELCOME BACK: SEPTEMBER CHANGES
We look forward to welcoming you all back to school on Tuesday 7th September. We hope that you have all had a good break and are looking forward to school re-starting. There are some big changes to be aware of now that government guidelines on COVID measures have changed.
Start and end times for the school day are changing. We are reverting to having one start and one end time to the school day for all pupils. The school day will start at 9am and finish at 3.15pm (as it was before COVID measures started). This should make life much easier for all of you with children in different year groups!
Entrances and exits are changing. We will no longer have a one way system and you will be free to enter school using either the Mauldeth Road entrance or the Talbot Road entrance. We will not be using the Aubrey Road entrance any more. All children in Years 1-6 will enter school from the KS1 playground and all children in Nursery and Reception will come in via the yellow gate on the footpath that runs along the side of the nursery.
Children will no longer have the restriction of working in bubbles, which will give us much greater flexibility in staffing and the organisation of learning. We will keep regular handwashing, additional cleaning measures, additional ventilation measures, staggered lunch and play times and front facing classroom desking until half-term, when we will review these. We will continue to monitor infection rates and follow government guideline updates and we will make any necessary changes to our routines and procedures in response to any changes. Our aim is to minimise any further disruption to the children's educational experience. We should return to offering a full range of subjects and after school clubs in this academic year.
The management of COVID cases and reporting measures will be different. Children with COVID will be expected to stay away from school until no longer infectious, even if they have no symptoms. However, we will no longer close bubbles around cases or send close contacts home. If we suspect a case, we will ask you to take your child home and it is a parent's responsibility to arrange a PCR test. This will no doubt cause some issues as headcolds and flu cases circulate with similar symptoms, however we will need to insist upon children going home and having tests if we suspect that they have symptoms - we simply have no choice in this.
Let's all hope that we have a safe return to a much more normal school term!
Some things don't change at all...The area around school will remain 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.
