 Uplands School - Return to School Plan for September 2020



Letter to Parents and Carers - 2nd September 2020

Swindon Borough Council Public Health Department Letter to Parents and Carers - August 2020

Swindon Borough Council Transport 
Please note:-  it has come to our attention that the letter you have received from SBC transport may be incorrect in term of your young person's return to school date.  The SBC buses will be running their complete route every weekday from Wednesday, 2nd September.  Please however, only send your young person to school in accordance with the timetable detailed below (or agreed with your young person's teacher.)  On days when your child is not attending please indicate this to the driver or escort so that they can drive on to their next stop.   


Please be aware that due to COVID-19 guidance and school risk assessments we are unable to welcome parents into the school building at this present time. If you need to meet with a member of staff please get in contact with us through the school office and we will arrange a socially distanced meeting at which you will be required to wear a face covering. Thank you for support of these measures designed to keep both students and staff as safe as possible. 


We are working with transport and have communicated this plan with them.  However, in terms of the detail, it is the responsibility of parents to ensure that transport knows the requirements for your young person, particularly if you are a key worker or are wanting a more bespoke or gradual plan. If you are planning to bring your young person to school by car, please arrive at 9:30 and collect again at 3:00 pm to avoid congestion with the buses.

PLEASE READ - Please be aware that there are many fraudulent emails/scams being sent pretending to be from schools offering refunds for school trips or offering payments for those families on free school meals. Please do not reply to these emails and do not email any personal information, such as bank details, to anyone. If you are unsure about a telephone call, text or email claiming to be from school, please check with the school office before responding.

 Many thanks for your cooperation and support at this challenging time.
