St George’s is closed to all pupils apart from those allocated places in year group pods. There are limited places available for children of keyworkers and those who are vulnerable.

During this difficult period we are providing a remote education provision.  Please read the document ‘Remote education provision: information for parents’ which is in the new ‘Remote Learning’ section of this website.

All our pupils are expected to carry out daily remote learning and attendance is recorded. Those in school also participate by using the same learning platforms as their class.  This work is being set by the teachers daily and follows the curriculum we would be delivering in school under normal circumstances. There are adaptations and videos to support home learning.

We recognise the expectation placed on parents to promote and support remote learning is challenging and can be demanding. St George’s is here to offer guidance and help where needed. By setting up routines, as though your child is in school, and following the daily timetable adds structure to the school day, for both child and parent, and success will come more easily.

St George’s will be open to all pupils on Monday 8th March 2021.

We are so pleased to be able to welcome our pupils back.
The timings of the autumn term continue with EYFS Year 1, Year 3 and Year 5 starting at 8.50am and finishing at 3pm.
Those children in Year 2, Year 4 and Year 6 will start at 9am and finish at 3.15pm.
Pods will again be kept separate throughout the day.
Lunches will be eaten in classes for children in EYFS through to Year 4. Year 5 and Year 6 will continue to eat lunch in the halls.
We will continue to have regular handwashing and use of hand sanitiser.
Please can parents respect we need to keep 2m distance from others and wear face coverings in the playground.
 
Reminder: Drop off old books – we need all the books used during remote learning brought back to school.
 
Return of Chromebooks: Please return the loaned Chromebooks to school on Monday 8th March. We have the list of names and serial numbers so we can ensure we cease the loan agreement. Once the list has been updated you will receive a text or email to confirm school is in receipt of your loaned Chromebook.
Helpful reminder for your children returning to school on Monday 8th March 2021
 
Please can all adults wear face coverings when on the playground (unless you have a medical exemption) and adhere to social distancing – 2 m apart from others.
 
Latest government guidelines advise that face coverings on the playground and in school are not appropriate for children under 12. If your child comes to school on public transport please ensure they have a small resealable plastic bag to put their face mask in when they arrive.
 
St George’s staff are currently participating in twice weekly lateral flow testing. This is to detect adults who are asymptomatic.
It doesn’t stop the spread of Coronavirus and should a confirmed case of Coronavirus, either from a member of staff or pupil be confirmed in school, then we would have to close the class bubble.
 
Households, childcare and support bubbles of primary school children can also be tested using lateral flow tests.
School does not hold these test kits for household testing. The twice-weekly test kits can be accessed from Eldon Car Park, Southsea, Portsmouth, PO12DJ (near IBIS Hotel) every afternoon from 1.30pm to 7pm.
