JANUARY RETURN TO SCHOOL - Updated 4th January

4th January final update - we are open


We are fully open tomorrow as planned.  As a school staff, we have spent the morning fully reviewing our risk assessments and we will be open tomorrow as normal.  There will be a few additional safety measures for our school site and I will update you with these later this afternoon (most are reminders).  We very much look forward to welcoming you all back 😊


2nd January Update to previous information shared on 30th December:


A brief update on the post below: there has been a lot of speculation in the news about primary schools moving to remote for the first two weeks of term.  This is not yet government guidance (which has never been timely or helpful for families) so at this time we will be open for all children on Tuesday as planned.  

However, if this changes we will communicate our plans immediately which will involve:
- offering places for key worker and vulnerable children
- getting remote learning set up as swiftly as possible to avoid children missing crucial things education.


If you have any questions, please ask.  We will answer as quickly as possible and try to be clear amongst all the confusion. 



Information shared on 30th December:


A quick update following the government announcement today and our move into Tier 4.


We have a training day on Monday 4th January as planned and will be open to all children on Tuesday 5th January.


We are very much looking forward to welcoming you all back for the start of a new term.  

COLLECTION FROM AFTER SCHOOL CLUBS - IMPORTANT INFORMATION - All after school clubs collections will be from outside the main school entrance so please turn up at the collection time for your child (to avoid having lots of people waiting around outside of the building). The only access point will be through the front gates for safeguarding reasons. No other external gates will be open (e.g. the gates to the line) - this is because our afterschool childcare children have supervised access to our yard and field and it would not be safe to leave other gates open. Please remember to wear a face mask on site where possible and, unless your child is in Y6 and has permission to walk home, we will expect an adult to collect every child. Thank you for your support with this so that we can ensure safety for all.
