Reminder on procedures for the children coming back next Thursday 3rd September

Dear Parents, 

It is brilliant to be able to welcome all our children back to school next week (First day being Thursday the 3rd of September). 

I thought I would give you an update reminder on the arrangements for the children returning to school next week.  

Drop off and pick up times for the children for September. 




Breakfast Club 



Year 5/6 



Year 4 



Year 3 



Year 2 



Year 1 




9:15am *

3:30pm *


The children will continue to be dropped off in the zones in the car park (which will be pedestrianised for when the children come into school and go home). 

If you have siblings attending the school, then could you please drop off all your children at the earliest time for your first child’s age group and then pick up at the latest times of your child’s pick up time please. (e.g. if you have two children, one in Year 6 and one in Year 1, you will drop off both children at 8:45am and pick up both children at 3:25pm). I do understand that this will mean longer days for some children, but I feel it is a better than one or more of them losing dedicated teaching time. 

I would also ask that you are prompt in your timings please, so we can get all the children in as safely and easily as possible. We also continue to have no parents inside the school building unless by prior arrangement. 

* The start and finish times for Reception pupils is to commence from the 3rd week of term. The times for the first 2 weeks have been confirmed on a previous email to Reception parents.


School Uniform 

There is an expectation that children will be wearing the correct school uniform- here is a reminder of the correct school uniform. 

 “At Buxworth, our children wear a uniform: red sweatshirts or cardigan bearing the school logo   white polo shirts or school shirts  grey or black trousers or skirts or pinafore dresses and  sensible black footwear.  Our uniform stockists are ‘Headmasters’ at the Indoor Market, New Mills”. 

I understand that the 'red only uniform' has been phased in gradually over a period of time, therefore, some parents may have old uniform (e.g black sweaters) and this is still acceptable in Year Groups 3,4,5 & 6. 

P.E. kit is no longer to be left at school in a pump bag for daily use. Red T-shirt, black shorts, pumps or trainers and tracksuit tops/bottoms for outdoor work. (logo clothes such as football shirts are unacceptable.) 

To reduce cross contamination, on the days your child has P.E. or forest school sessions (your child’s teacher will inform you of when) I would ask that the child comes in the appropriate kit for the whole day, there will not be no expectation for them to get changed into or out of school uniform on those days. 

 Equipment for classes 

We will supply all the children with their own equipment for classes; I would ask that you do not send children in with pencil cases or other equipment from home. 

I would also ask that you only send your child in with a coat and a drinks bottle. They may of course bring in a packed lunch if they are not having school dinners (which are ordered in the normal manner). Please do not send in book bags for the time being as we will continue to come up with creative ways to work at home to encourage your child’s reading. 

This is all in guidance to reduce cross contamination and will of course be regularly reviewed. 

I also need to inform you that due to the new track & trace system being brought into place in all schools that your phone number may be requested by Public Health England (currently).  

If you wish to discuss any of these arrangements please don’t hesitate to contact the school office on 

My staff and I are very excited to have the pupils back in school and I look forward to what no doubt is going to be a great year for our children. 

Kind Regards, 



Paul Bertram
