Following the Minister of Education's statement last week plans for re-opening the school will be as follows:
Week beginning 24th August:
Pupils will attend in two groups, A and B, as per previous text message sent to all families:
Monday 24th/Tuesday 25th P7 Group A only (12.30pm finish)
Thursday 27th/Friday 28th P7 Group B (12.30pm finish)
Children's groups remain as per Information booklets sent home
Thursday 27th P2 to P6 Group A (12.30pm finish)
Friday 28th P2 to P6 Group B (12.30pm finish)
There will be no lunches on these days.
On these days, and for the foreseeable future, doors will be open for pupils from 8.40am until 9.00am. This will reduce the numbers of pupils entering the building at any one time.
Doors for pupil entry:
P1 - P3 Bottom doors in Infant Playground

P6 - P7 Top doors in Senior Playground
We kindly request that parents and guardians leave the school premises as quickly as possible. Thank you for your support in this.

All pupils will be able to return to school on a full time basis.
Please note Monday 31st August will be a 12.30pm finish.
From Tuesday 1st September :

School dinners in the form of a packed lunch will be available from Tuesday 1st September. These will be delivered to the classrooms.
Children are expected to wear full school uniform and are permitted to bring school bags and lunch boxes each day. These will be kept on pegs in cloakroom areas throughout the school day.
Each child will be provided with a zip folder for all of their stationery items, such as their own pencils and pens, which will be kept in school.
We hope to open our Breakfast and Two O'Clock Clubs as soon as possible and will get information on this to you as soon as this is available.
We are looking forward to welcoming all the children back to Brooklands after such a long time apart. All staff are very aware of the anxieties children may be feeling as they start the new academic year and our focus will be on the children's well being and happiness after a long period away from the classroom.
May we take this opportunity to once again thank you for all your support during what has been an exceptionally challenging time for all.
We now look ahead with hope and positivity for the year and happy times to come within Brooklands Primary School.
Kindest Regards, Mr Armstrong, Mrs Smart and the Brooklands Team
