September - A New School Year

Although we are currently still waiting for final guidance from the government as to what September should look like in schools, there is one thing that is coming across loud and clear - all children will be returning to school!  We cannot wait!!


We know you will have lots of questions around how it might look but until we receive the official guidance from the government (hopefully this week) we aren't able to share any finer details with you.  Rest assured, we have been working on plans as we fully understand how unsettling it is for everyone not knowing.  


If you have a specific question you would like to ask linked to your own circumstances, please email and someone will be in touch as soon as possible.


If you have applied for a Nursery place, Mrs McArdle will be in touch with you directly.  We are just sorting out the final details.


I thank you for your patience throughout this.  It is not ideal for any school to have to wait until the last minute for government guidance but these are unusual and challenging times and, as always, we will make it work for our Fordley Family.


Kind regards


Mrs C.L. Withers




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.
