Heatwave Information v2

Dear parents and carers,

Due to the weather forecast of temperatures in excess of 30 degrees Celsius at the start of next week, we wanted to let you know of our plans to ensure we keep the children, staff and everyone in school safe.

Please ensure that your child / children continue to bring a sun hat to school, wear sun cream and bring extra with them, and that they have a water bottle with them each day. Please ensure your children wear light, loose fitting clothes - either shorts and a school polo shirt (or PE t-shirt) or sun dresses would be ideal.

*On Monday and Tuesday, we will be having afternoon break times inside and a shorter time outside at lunch. Children will be told not to play games that involve running or vigorous activity.

*Where temperatures are in excess of 30 degrees Celsius, PE lessons will not take place.

*Windows will be opened early in the morning to allow cooler air to ventilate the school. Windows will be closed when the outside temperature is higher than that inside.

*Window blinds will be used to shield the sun.

*Electrical lighting and use of electrical equipment will be kept to minimal use.

*Signs of heat stress have been shared and discussed with staff so that they are alert to any symptoms children may display, in order that we can act on these quickly.

*Due to the temperatures forecast for Tuesday morning (30 degrees by 10am), we are moving our production of Oliver to Thursday at 9.30am. All tickets for Tuesday will be valid on Thursday. We expect our other performances to go ahead as scheduled. Apologies for any inconvenience.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Kind regards,

The KPNS Team.
