Establishing lifelong learning: rooted in knowledge, enriched by experience
Sports Days 2nd and 9th July
This year, we will be having 2 separate Sports Days at Dinton Fields. We are delighted to invite 1 parent per child to watch.
Years 3 to 6 will have their sports day from 9.30 on Friday 2nd July, and Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will have theirs from 9.30 on 9th July.
Children should arrive at school for their usual start time, with sun cream already applied. They will need a sunhat, a named water bottle and a packed lunch. Classes will then be registered and walked down to Dinton Fields accompanied by their class teacher, class adults and parent helpers.
Parents are welcome to join us but, due to Covid restrictions, there will only be 1 adult allowed per child and we will be requiring you to stay in a bubble with adults from your child’s class for the time you are with us. Parents will not be able to move to different year group bubbles during the event in line with government guidelines. However, grandparents or other family members can attend as a child’s representative. We recognise the logistical challenges of this but it is the only way that a whole school event can run with parents attending. We would ask that parents maintain social distancing throughout the event, wear a face covering and, if possible, parents should take a lateral flow test the night before. If parents or their children feel unwell or develop Covid-19 symptoms before the event they should not attend and instead access a PCR test. Unfortunately we cannot run any parent races this year. We would encourage all parents to walk to Dinton Fields, as the ‘School Streets’ initiative will be in place on the surrounding roads at this time. Parents can take photographs of their child but please avoid putting these on social media or sharing them online. There are also no toilet facilities available for adults on the field.
Each class and parent bubble will remain in the same space on the field throughout the morning with activities being brought to each group.
