Life at Wilby Primary



Dear Parents/Carers,

September 2021-1st Pupil Day September 6th

We are looking forward to welcoming all of our pupils back into school on Monday 6th September and hope that you have all had a restful and enjoyable summer break.

Organistaion for the beginning of term: As Covid restrictions have been relaxed we will be able to return to class bubbles being able to mix indoors. This will enable us to return to having whole school assemblies. However, we will continue to adhere to our rigorous hygiene procedures, including frequent hand-washing and use of hand sanitisers.

We have retained the structure used in the Summer Term for break and lunch time organisation. As school numbers have grown, we have found that separating into lower and upper school for breaks and lunch times has been beneficial in a number of ways, particularly in terms of the children having more space. Owl and Kingfisher will continue to have outdoor breaks and lunch times together and Wren Class and Wren Chicks will eat their lunches at the same time.

Arrangements for drop off and collection:

In September we will continue our hand-washing on arrival at school.

In order to minimise disruption to the school day and to continue to keep our school population as safe as possible, arrival times and collection times will be adjusted as follows:

Arrival Times

8.45am Front of school – Children in Owl and Kingfisher class who do not have brothers or sisters in school.                                        Parents/carers please exit via the front gate.

8.45am Back of school  - Owl Class children who have a younger sibling in school, line up here along with their younger brother/s or sister/s from Wren or Kingfisher Classes.


8.55am Front of school  - Wren Class who do not have a brother or sister in school:  Parents/ carers please exit via the front gate.

8.55am Back of school - Wren Class who have a sibling in Kingfisher Class: Parents/carers please use the path to the left of the school building and queue at a social distance beside the rear school entrance.


Collection Times

3.15 pm All other pupils may be collected from the front playground. Parents/carers please wait, standing at a social distance, until your children are sent out to you.

These times must be adhered to exactly please. Please do not arrive early or late. Please remember to stand at safe  social distances when dropping off/collecting children. Please remember that you may not leave your child at the morning drop-off until you have checked them in with a member of staff. Please ensure you leave the playground and car-park swiftly once you have dropped off/ collected your child.
