School is Open for Summer Term 2020!

School opens on Friday 4th September, when ALL children will be expected to return to school.   

Please note that Breakfast Club and ASC will start from Monday 7th September and is only available to those who have pre-booked and been confirmed.

When we return in September, we will be continuing with the staggered start and finish times, which we have set out in the table below:

Year N 6 1 5 RY 2 4 RR 3 RB
Start 8.30 8.40 8.40 8.50 8.50 8.50 9.00 9.00 9.00 9.10
Finish  11.30 3.00 3.00 3.10 3.00 3.10 3.20 3.10 3.20 3.20

Please check below if your child attends Launch Pad or Shooting Stars: 

  Launchpad Shooting Stars
Start 8.50 9.00
Finish 2.50 3.00

As much a possible, children will be kept in 'bubbles' of thirty, with staggered break and lunch times for each year group. We will be returning to the full menu for school dinners, with year groups adhering to staggered times. The children will have the same amount of break, lunchtime and learning time.

We are requesting that in order to ensure all pupils remain socially distant, that Year 6 be dropped off and collected from school daily.

We are hoping that by continuing to work in this way, with everyone abiding to the social distancing rules, that we can all remain safe.

Our Breakfast and After School Clubs will only be open to those children whose parents are working and who essentially need it to continue to work (proof will be required).  We know that this will affect many parents, but it is necessary, so that we can more easily track and trace contact of children. In essence, this approach will reduce our numbers in the clubs considerably, hence making it easier to group children in year group bubbles. In this way, we are trying to ensure the safety of not only our pupils but our staff too.  

It will also be necessary for us to use a booking system for both clubs - something that in the past we have shied away from in order to give parents more flexibility, but unfortunately, now we need to be able to see who will be attending ahead of time in order for us to group the children - so booking ahead will be vital.  

We apologise for any inconvenience this new approach may cause, but it is the only way we will be able to offer you a service that we feel keeps everyone safe. Places will be limited and there can be no assumption that there will be a place available.   If you missed the deadline to for either of these clubs before the school closed, please email Mrs Ayris at office@rabbsfarm.hillingdon.sch.uk to request a booking form.  This will be emailed back to you to complete and should be returned with proof from your employer that you are returning to work.  Mrs Ayris will then confirm to you if a place is available.

The governors and staff would like to take this opportunity to wish you a safe and happy summer.  Take care.

We miss you!

Education Resources / Educational Psychology Service (EPS) / Emotional Literacy Support (ELSA)

The School Placement and Admissions team have pulled together as many resources as possible, in the document below, to support you and your child/ren during school closure.  These resources cover all age ranges and abilities, and although sorted into Key Stages, please do look at other areas within the document, as you may find them useful.  You can also find many more resources by visiting the Learning Zone of our website.   For emotional support, strategies and resources, please visit our ELSA  page.

Can you guess what tunes our children are playing?
