  • All Children to start school on Monday 6th September. The school gates will be open as normal from 8.45 to 9.00am.

    Dear Parents and Carers,

    I hope you and your families are all well and enjoyed a lovely summer holiday. We are all very excited to welcome all children back to school on Monday 6th September. The school gates will be open as normal from 8.45 to 9.00am. I hope you have all remembered who your new teacher is and where your class is in school. There will be plenty of staff out on the playground and by the gates to help you next week in the mornings.

    We would still like to encourage the wearing of face coverings on the school site and also one adult per family for dropping off and picking up children.

    Breakfast Club and after school sports clubs will start the week commencing the 13th September and more details will follow next week.

    Children can continue to wear their PE kit on the days they have a PE/Games lesson - your class teacher will remind you of these days. On other days all children need to wear the approved school uniform including smart sensible footwear.

    Any child or adult displaying any COVID symptoms- high temperature, continuous cough and loss of taste or smell should not attend school. They are required to isolate and book a PCR test. Please contact school to let us know and the results of any tests. If positive you are required to isolate for ten days.

    Your class teachers will provide more information next week about the curriculum, homework, trips and events in school through Dojo and newsletters.

    I look forward to seeing you all next week and an exciting school year ahead.

    My very best wishes to you all.

    Mr Daintith

    About our Coronavirus (COVID-19): Full Opening Plan

    The government has confirmed that attendance will be mandatory for all pupils from 8 March 2021. While coronavirus (COVID-19) remains in the community, the government has confirmed judgements must be made at a school level about how to balance and minimise any risks with providing a full educational experience for children and young people.

    It’s important that schools put in place proportionate protective measures for pupils and staff, which also ensure that all pupils receive a high-quality education that enables them to thrive and progress.

    For the full plan and the risk assessment please follow the link the link below:
