Hello everyone, following the lengthy period of time where we have not been able to be in school as a school family together, I am delighted that we will be able to welcome all the children back to school next Wednesday, 2nd September!

A lot of work has taken place behind the scenes to try and make school ready for the children and staff so that we can make sure we are being as safe as we can be whilst getting on with the very important business of learning.

Details that you need to know can be found in the documents at the bottom of this page. It is titled "Full Opening of school - information for families."

One of the most important things to note is that there are different start and finish times to the school day for some children.  We appreciate that this may be a challenge for some families but we have had to do this to make the Government's plans work.

Once we get everyone back and see how the plans are working, we may need to adjust some things, please bear with us whilst we get things sorted.

Any questions, please do get in touch.

We are now ready to begin our phased approach to the wider opening of school from Monday 22nd June for children in Nursery, Reception and Year 1 on a rota basis.

Families who indicated that they intend to send their children back to school have been contacted and know when their children will be attending.

On this page you should have a flip book of photos to share with your child(ren) to help them prepare for their return to school.

There is also a summary document for you to read (please read the appropriate one for the group your child is in) as well as a more detailed guidance document about how school will be.  These documents are correct at the time of uploading and are subject to revision should the need arise.


As always, any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.
