How do I get into school?

We are asking that students arrive no earlier than 8:30Breakfast club is available from 8am until 8.30am.  please contact the school to book a place for your child as numbers are limited.

Students arriving on foot or by bus will follow this plan and will walk at socially distant intervals, following markings on the footpath to their assigned Year Bubbles/zones. Members of staff will be on duty to support any child who is confused.

Year Bubbles

Clearly defined Year Bubbles are planned. Students will not mix outside of their year groups and will have distinct routes into and out of school, again as a year group, separated into specific areas for break and lunch.

The DfE recommends that mixing within a year is permittable for the teaching of bespoke sets such as English and Maths or intervention/ catch up. Students will not mix across year groups.

We will use the field during lunch tim,es to give the pupils more space.

Routes around school

All routes are clearly signposted across the site on the ground and by posters on the walls.

 

School Buses

Please contact school.transport@centralbedfordshire.gov.uk or 0300 300 8339 for specific enquiries about your child’s route and timetable. 

We will ensure students are separated by year on all transport and will follow the guidance from Central Beds Council.

Cars cannot enter the RBA site, either on Bloomfield Drive or through Kingfisher Estate.
