Llandrindod Wells C. P. School

Ysgol Gynradd y Sir Llandrindod



Return to School Charter

This School Charter contains a temporary behaviour policy to cover the period in which a phased re-opening of the school is in place, due to COVID-19 pandemic.

All contents of this Charter have one goal: the safety of children, parents/carers and staff.

This document should be read, mindful of our existing behaviour code, which we keep the heart of everything we do.

We will continue to expect the same high standards of behaviour during our phased re-opening of Llandrindod Wells CP School – Cefnllys.

If a child needs to reflect on their behaviour choice our usual “Time-Out” or “Reflection” time will not be possible. Staff will contact parents/carers, requesting that they support the school by enabling this reflection to happen at home.

We will follow a 3 strike rule regarding the procedures during this period of restriction and where a child is unable to comply then they will be unable to access the provision.

To keep everyone as safe as possible, we ask that children follow these rules, in addition to our existing expectations:

School arrival and departures


  • Follow precisely the guidance of staff entering/exiting the school site in a staggered fashion, as per set timetable, taking the routes exactly prescribed. Timings will have been given and need to be adhered to.
  • Enter/exit the school via the gate as directed and without rushing/running or getting close to others (2m rule!)


Social Distancing


  • Always be alert and try to be mindful of where others are positioned – 2m rule!
  • Walk sensibly when moving around the school – both inside and outside. We do not want you to run into others, so take care in corridors and when going around corners.
  • Follow the directions explained to you – One way system.
  • However challenging, follow the advice of staff and only socialise with pupils within your Pod. Do not go running up to greet friends – a friendly wave from afar will show your friend that you are thinking of them and they will understand: all groups will be told the same messages.


Hand washing and hygiene requirements


  • Carry out all thorough handwashing and sanitising that is asked of you and do so as frequently as requested, without complaint.
  • Be mindful that if you go to the toilet, you may have to wait for another child to return first - it will be one in/one out.
  • As before, if you need to sneeze or cough, use a tissue to dispose of it immediately in a classroom or playground bin (“catch it, bin it, kill it”)
  • Avoid touching your mouth, nose and eyes with your hands.
  • Avoid touching anybody else. You need to remain 2m apart – your assigned adult will ensure you follow these rules.
  • You never cough towards another person.
  • Any pupil deliberately coughing or spitting at other pupils or staff will be sent home.



Classroom resources           

  • Use only your designated seating area.
  • You must not get up from your place to collect anything or for any reason – put your hand up if you have a need and an adult will tell you how to manage the situation.
  • Do not share your stationery or equipment with anyone. You will be provided with your own pencil case with basic equipment and a folder with paper etc.
  • Never share a water bottle with anyone. Ensure yours is clearly labelled with your name and that it remains on your table.
  • Do not bring any extra resources from home – a water bottle, sun protection and coat is all you require. No bags or any other belongings in school please.
  • If you are in year 6 and you bring a mobile phone or keys etc. your class teacher will look after these for you.
  • Place your coat on the back of your chair.
  • You will not need to change your shoes at this time.


Feeling Unwell

  • If you feel unwell, tell an adult about your symptoms as soon as you experience them.



  1. Be patient about playtimes; these will be staggered and your Pod will have playtime together.
  2. We aim to have one whole class outdoor activity every day weather permitting.
  3. No hand to hand contact games or equipment allowed.



Pupils attending school at this time do not need to wear school uniform.

Long hair should be tied back, as usual and jewellery, except for religious items and one pair of plain stud ear-rings is not permitted. We have clocks in all rooms, so you may prefer to leave your watch at home.


Parent/Carer information


 Wherever possible only one person arriving at school gate with your child. Pupils need to enter the school as confidently as possible and go to their member of staff as we are unable to physically encourage in the same way as we would like eg: hand hold or little hug.


Car park and pick up/drop off time:

In order to maintain 2m distance please do not remain in car park after drop off and do not arrive too early.


Lunch: No lunches will be provided and therefore all pupils will need a packed lunch as well as a bottle of water – clearly labelled. Please ensure that your child can access their food unaided ie: open pots, unwrap or open packets as staff are unable to assist with this.


A Temporary First Aid/Medication Policy has been agreed for the period 29th June 2020 to 24th July 2020.( see website)


Now is the time that we need everyone working together to keep safe.

All the children need to show their “best self” – looking after others and themselves by following all these rules, maintaining our normal school behaviour expectations and by demonstrating our school values.


If your child’s behaviour and actions put others at risk, then you will be called and where a child is unable to comply then they will be unable to access the provision at this time.


Remember we are all working together at this difficult time and we need to follow guidelines to keep everyone safe and provide the best opportunities possible.


This charter, containing additional references to behaviour, should be read in conjunction with the school’s existing behaviour policy, as published on our website. This document may be updated considering any further Government guidance.
