Our schools are minimising the number of visitors they receive, as well as the amount of time visitors spend on the school premises, during the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. This will help to minimise group mixing and make it easier to maintain social distancing in school.
We expect all visitors to: 1. only visit the school premises if absolutely necessary. Please phone instead, request a call or request an online meeting if possible. 2. not enter the premises if you or any members of your household have symptoms of coronavirus. 3. clean your hands with alcohol gel (provided) when you enter and leave the building. 4. follow the same procedures as those in place for staff, ie social distancing (2m), avoid touching surfaces and do not enter areas of the school without the permission of staff.
Thank you for your support in keeping our pupils, staff and families safe.
At Widey Court Primary School around one fifth of our pupils have parents in the armed forces. All of our service children are our Military Kids Club Heroes and we do our best to support them.
We have spoken to our service families about the challenges that they face and do our best to support them in school.
I will let you know as soon as we are able to safely run our lunchtime KIT Clubs, details of which are below.
We run three lunchtime clubs every week called KIT Clubs. KIT stands for “Keeping in Touch”. There is one on a Tuesday lunchtime for service children in Key Stage 1, on a Thursday lunchtime for KS2 and from 2pm - 2.30pm on a Thursday afternoon for Foundation stage childen. The clubs are always very well attended and the children love knowing that there are others in the same situation as them, especially when a parent is deployed.
Field Gun Club
I will let you know as soon as we are able to safely run our field gun club, the details of which are below
This club is open to children from years 4, 5 and 6 and we are helped by veterans from Devonport Field Gun Association with whom the school has close links. This is a fantastic activity and Widey Court Primary School were one of the first schools to become actively involved. We have performed brilliantly in the annual inter school junior field gun competitions held on Plymouth Hoe on Armed Forces Day. We are supported by veterans from Devonport Field Gun Association
