Coronavirus Update: as I am sure you are more than aware; more areas of England are to move to 'high risk' Tier 2 lockdown restrictions from 12:01am, on Friday. This affects The Borough of London (Kenley, Croydon, etc) and in Surrey, Elmbridge. This is because of an increase in infections.
What does this mean for me?
Meeting Friends and Family
*You must not meet people you don't live with in any indoor setting - whether at home or, for example, a pub or restaurant - unless they are part of your support or childcare bubble.
*You may continue to mix with people outdoors (including in a garden or a park) but you must not meet in a group more than six, and you must follow social distancing rules.
*Meeting in larger groups is against the law, and you can be fined up to £6,400.
Schools
*Schools and nurseries remain open. In schools and colleges that teach Year 7 and above, face coverings should be worn by adults and pupils when moving around the premises, but not usually in a classroom.
Leisure Time
*Pubs, bars and restaurants are restricted to table service only and must close at 22:00 BST.
*Customers should not mix indoors with anyone from outside their own household or support bubble. *Outdoors, you can meet in groups of up to six people.
*At least one member of any group should give their contact details to the venue or check in using the NHS Covid app.
*Face coverings must be worn, except when seated to eat or drink.
Shopping
*You must wear a face covering in shops, supermarkets and shopping centres.
Other
*If you need to travel, you should aim to reduce the number of journeys you make where possible and you are encouraged to walk or cycle, rather than use public transport.
*You should avoid travelling in a car with someone outside your household or support bubble unless you can practise social distancing.
*You can stay at hotels or guest accommodation, inside or outside your area, but only with people in your household or support bubble.
*Travel from your area to Wales will not be allowed from 18:00 BST on Friday 16 October, except for a limited set of reasons such as going to school or work.
*Weddings, civil partnership ceremonies and wedding receptions are restricted to 15 people (the reception must be a sit-down meal).
*Up to 30 people can attend a funeral. Wakes and other related events are restricted to 15 people.
*You should not visit a care home except in exceptional circumstances, for example to visit an individual who is at the end of their life.
Restrictions review: the PM has said that restrictions will be in place for the fortnight and will then be reviewed.

Swimming
We are pleased to announce that the school swimming will be starting up again as from week commencing 2nd November 2020. We are having to make some changes in order for this activity to work safely for us all, in this respect, swimming for your child will take place every other week. The reason for this is because the changing rooms need to be cleaned in between each session, adhering to the current rules and regulations. The good news is that each lesson has been increased to 40 minutes, with each class split into two groups.   A longer session will benefit the pupils, allowing the teacher to focus more on the children’s strokes and confidence in the water.
Below is a time table of when each class will be swimming, please ensure your child/ren have their swimming kit in school on this day:

WB 2.11.20
