Returning to school - from Wednesday 1st September

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you all back from Wednesday 2nd September.  It will be lovely to have everyone back, even if it may look a little different for everyone’s safety.


A few updates:


  • we have a new phone number - 0191 2502207.  If you have changed your number, please email to let us know 
  • if you have contacted us for information about your child’s Fordley Flyers or Nursery place, we will be in touch tomorrow (either via email or phone)
  • if you emailed to request places at Breakfast Club or Afterschool Club, you will receive an email tomorrow with further information
  • if your Nursery child will be accessing 30 hours, please make sure we have your 30 hours code
  • we will be updating our guidance for returning to school.  This will be shared in our website on Wednesday.
  • if you have any further questions or queries, please email and we will reply as quickly as possible 
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.
