From Thursday 3rd September, we have welcomed back all pupils in Years 1- 6 into school, with Reception pupils starting on 10th September and Nursery pupils having their induction on 16th September. All staff have undergone training to make sure that school is ready to open fully to all year groups and it has been great to receive all your positive feedback as well as seeing how pupils have enjoyed their learning!
Please find below important information about the changes that have been made at school to make sure that the members of our school community are as safe as possible. We have added links to the latest scientific and government information for parents and carers regarding the importance of returning to school as well as the risk assessment that has been carried out so that you understand all the additional measures that have been put in place to minimise the risks to all members of our school community. We hope that this information will alleviate the concerns that you may have.
Pupils must wear school uniform. All parents have received information about making an appointment at Sanco or buying uniform online via ParentMail so please refer to this when planning for uniform. The Uniform Policy under Key Information should also answer any questions you may have.
Details of the staggered start and finish times were sent to all parents and carers of pupils in Years 1-6 via ParentMail on 20th July so please refer to this letter. The details are in the attachment called 'Covering letter group A/B/C/D'. If pupils are late arriving or being collected, classroom doors will remain open until 10am in the mornings and close at 4pm - siblings must be collected from their own classrooms using the one way route around the school.
Unfortunately, parents and carers will not be able to enter the school unless by prior arrangement to minimise the risk to all. Please email or telephone school with any queries or information that you wish to give - we will then arrange to speak with you should that be needed. We would thank all parents and carers for following all the procedures which are in place to help to keep all members of the school community as safe as possible.
We are very much looking forward to seeing all our pupils and families now we are back at school. We love school!
