Year 5 Parental Intent Survey


We are exploring options regarding a limited opening of Year 5 and would appreciate it if you could complete the form below to indicate if you would be interested in your child joining this provision.  Please note that nothing is confirmed at this time.  The form needs to be completed by 10am on Friday 19th June.



Change to Entrance and Exit of the School site


From Monday 8th June we have had to make changes to how parents access the site in order to drop off or collect their child(ren). We will be operating a single entrance and exit point which will help allow for distancing where our paths are too narrow for passing.

These changes are:

•All parents and children should enter the school site via North Street

•Once you have dropped off / collected your child you must leave the school site via Middletune Avenue

• Volante Drive will not be open for entrance/exit for the immediate future

• Parents will not be able to leave the site via North Street or enter from Middletune Avenue

• Parents and children should adhere to 2m distancing at all times while on the school site

We appreciate that this is not an ideal solution and that it will take more time to do drop-off/collection. However, the need to keep our parents, children and wider community safe means that this is a necessary measure.

Thank you in advance for your support and we look forward to seeing you when your child returns to school.

Phased Opening Information


Information regarding the phased reopening of Regis Manor Primary School has been sent to key workers and parents of children in Years R, 1 and 6 via our app (Weduc). Any parent that does not have the app will receive a copy in the post over the next couple of days. Please contact the school office if you have not seen this.




Reopening Update Message


As you are probably aware, the government confirmed yesterday that certain year groups in primary schools will soon begin to return to school. To enable this to happen and to ensure the safety and well-being of all pupils and staff, Swale Academies Trust is completing rigorous risk assessments in all schools. 

Our school is now preparing the site for wider reopening and ensuring that the right equipment is in place.  A phased return of Reception, Years 1 and 6 will start from Monday 8th June.  This will be a staggered start with year groups returning over a couple of weeks and detailed information about new arrangements will be shared with parents and carers early next week.

School Closure Information


Dear Parents, 

As you will be aware, we are closing for the vast majority of students with effect from the end of today (Friday 20th March) until further notice in accordance with government instruction. 

We will remain open for pupils who have EHCPs, Local Authority Looked After Children and children of key workers whose parents are unable to keep them at home. We need to know urgently which children are likely to attend whose parents are key workers. Children who do not fall into these categories should remain at home with appropriate care.

The government has asked parents to follow these key principles:

  1. If it is at all possible for children to be at home, then they should be.

  2. If a child needs specialist support, is vulnerable or has a parent who is a critical worker, then educational provision will be available for them.

  3. Parents should not rely for childcare upon those who are advised to be in the stringent social distancing category such as grandparents, friends, or family members with underlying conditions.

  4. Parents should also do everything they can to ensure children are not mixing socially in a way which can continue to spread the virus. They should observe the same social distancing principles as adults.

The school is aware of pupils who are in the vulnerable bracket and will contact them individually today if we haven’t already done so.

In order that we can make the necessary planning for Monday morning could you please let us know if you are a critical worker and you are unable to look after your child at home and need the school to provide provision for your child from next Monday then complete this Google Form as soon as possible and by 1pm Friday 20th March at the latest to support us with planning. Please check the list below thoroughly, explore childcare options and where appropriate speak to your employer before completing the form.

 Late last night the government issued advice for parents on next steps for schools and advised parents to keep their child(ren) at home wherever possible and only use schools if there is no other option.  The full guidance can be found here

The Cabinet Office defines key workers as:

Health and social care

This includes but is not limited to doctors, nurses, midwives, paramedics, social workers, care workers, and other frontline health and social care staff including volunteers; the support and specialist staff required to maintain the UK’s health and social care sector; those working as part of the health and social care supply chain, including producers and distributers of medicines and medical and personal protective equipment.

Education and childcare

This includes nursery and teaching staff, social workers and those specialist education professionals who must remain active during the COVID-19 response to deliver this approach.

Key public services

This includes those essential to the running of the justice system, religious staff, charities and workers delivering key frontline services, those responsible for the management of the deceased, and journalists and broadcasters who are providing public service broadcasting.

Local and national government

This only includes those administrative occupations essential to the effective delivery of the COVID-19 response or delivering essential public services such as the payment of benefits, including in government agencies and arms length bodies.

Food and other necessary goods

This includes those involved in food production, processing, distribution, sale and delivery as well as those essential to the provision of other key goods (for example hygienic and veterinary medicines).

Public safety and national security

This includes police and support staff, Ministry of Defence civilians, contractor and armed forces personnel (those critical to the delivery of key defence and national security outputs and essential to the response to the COVID-19 pandemic), fire and rescue service employees (including support staff), National Crime Agency staff, those maintaining border security, prison and probation staff and other national security roles, including those overseas.


This includes those who will keep the air, water, road and rail passenger and freight transport modes operating during the COVID-19 response, including those working on transport systems through which supply chains pass.

Utilities, communication and financial services

This includes staff needed for essential financial services provision (including but not limited to workers in banks, building societies and financial market infrastructure), the oil, gas, electricity and water sectors (including sewerage), information technology and data infrastructure sector and primary industry supplies to continue during the COVID-19 response, as well as key staff working in the civil nuclear, chemicals, telecommunications (including but not limited to network operations, field engineering, call centre staff, IT and data infrastructure, 999 and 111 critical services), postal services and delivery, payments providers and waste disposal sectors.

If workers think they fall within the critical categories above they should confirm with their employer that, based on their business continuity arrangements, their specific role is necessary for the continuation of this essential public service.

If you have any questions regarding this information above then please speak to the school office this morning.


Yours sincerely

Mr M Perry


Skate Park Graffiti Project


As part of an art project for Sittingbourne Skate Park a few children got the opportunity to create a piece of art work using graffiti techniques. The art work will be displayed in school and a replica at the park. Well done to everyone involved!



High 5 Netball Tournament


Year 6 pupils enjoyed participating in a High 5 Netball tournament, earlier this week, competing against numerous schools from Sittingbourne & Sheppey. After a number of wins in the group stage, the children found themselves in the bronze medal match. It was an extremely entertaining game, but, sadly, the opposing team scored just before the final whistle, taking a 1-0 victory. Well done children, you excelled yourselves in effort and sportsmanship. You were fantastic ambassadors of Regis Manor.


Stay and Play


Another brilliant time had at Stay and Play this morning.
