Welcome to our school video for prospective parents.

If you would like to take a look around Dussindale Primary School please email: office-ds@yare-edu.org.uk and we will arrange a convenient time (In line with the DfE guidelines and risk assessments; please note that these will take place after the school day).


Here is what our parents think - 

“Thanks for everything this year it must have been one of the most challenging years you have come across, you and your school have done amazing you must be proud.”

 “Congratulations to you, all the staff and the governors on the well-deserved Good Ofsted report. We have been very happy to see all the improvements you’ve been making and are glad to see that recognised by Ofsted. Our children have both flourished this year and we have been very impressed with the teaching teams in both Coral and Caribbean classes.”

“I just wanted to email and thank all the staff (and children) for such an amazing trip to Young Voices. It was the most incredible experience for the children and the parents …. It was really quite emotional - especially when they all put their arms round each other! … When we collected the children from school, the coach driver told me that they don’t often do school trips, but the children had been brilliant and he was really impressed"

“Just a quick email to say thank you for the help and support from Dussindale during lockdown and the amazing changes you have put into place to keep our children and families safe and to reassure us parents that the children will be safe"

“I would like to say a big thank you for the amazing work that I know you and all of the teachers at the school have been making in planning the children's return to school. As a teacher myself I know how much time and effort has gone into this and am very grateful"

Unless testing was delayed following onset of symptoms,  

Case was not in setting and therefore, there is no need to contact the school

 

For a confirmed case between the close of school on Friday 18th December and Monday 21st December parents and carers must use the following email address to inform the school: head-ds@yare-edu.org.uk (Please do not email individual staff).

In order to ensure these arrangements work effectively and minimise the risk of compromising families’ Christmas break, please seek tests via testing centres rather than via postal tests as this can significantly delay confirmation of results.  Results are normally forthcoming in 24 hours via test centres. 

If you have any questions regarding these arrangements please contact the school before midday on Friday 18th December on office-ds@yare-edu.org.uk 


Thank you for your continued support with the COVID-19 routines. In light of the governments announcement on Saturday 31st October please can we remind you of the following:

· The staggered drop off and pick up times must continue to be adhered too.

· Only one adult should bring and collect their children from school. 

· The one way system remains in place, throughout the site, to eliminate groups passing on narrow pathways. 

· Only send your child/ren to school with a tote bag, drawstring PE style bag or a carrier bag, please do not send in rucksacks.

· From tomorrow (Wednesday 4th November) we ask all adults entering the site, including playground, to wear a face mask unless they have a medical reason preventing them from doing so.

· We would also like to highlight that the current advice is to keep the school well ventilated to minimise risk.  Whilst the heating is on, the windows will be open, so children may wish to bring additional layers to wear at school.  

· From 4th November the school remains open for all pupils to attend.  Staff will only set work via Google Classrooms or Tapestry for pupils whose ‘bubble’ is closed or that are self-isolating or shielding with a medical reason confirmed by a GP or hospital. 

 

Please refer to Parent Pages - Newsletters and General Letters 2019/20 for the latest school advice letter and further information.
