1st June Update

From the week commencing 1 June 2020 at the earliest, the Government has directed schools to welcome back children in Nursery, Reception, year 1 and year 6, alongside continuing the provision for priority groups of keyworker and vulnerable pupils.


In line with the above we have contacted all parent/carers of the relevant groups to ask if they are willing for their children to return to school on the 1st of June. 


There will be no sanctions if parents/carers decide to keep their children at home and we will continue to offer remote learning resources as required. Should you decide to change your mind regarding attendance please let the school know as soon as possible by either a text to 07561 611365 or phone the school to leave a message on 01743 236520

Keeping Safe

The plan is that on the 1st of June we will offer a limited program to ensure we can provide as safe and secure an environment as possible. Therefore, if you have opted to return your child to school on the 1st of June please read the following carefully:

  • If anyone in your household becomes unwell with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature, or has a loss of, or change in, their normal sense of taste of smell (anosmia), your child stay at home and self-isolate as advised in the COVID-19: guidance for households with possible coronavirus infection guidance.
  • If anyone in school becomes unwell with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature, or has a loss of, or change in, their normal sense of taste of smell (anosmia), they will be sent home and advised to follow the COVID-19: guidance for households with possible coronavirus infection guidance.
  • Allchildren must be accompanied to the school by only one parent/carer including Year 6 pupils.
  • Parents/carers must adhere to Social Distancing and follow signage and staff instructions.
  • Please come to school at your allotted time and follow instructions set out below.
  • Parents/Carers will not be allowed into the school building. Where possible please communicate via telephone (If you need to speak to a teacher please leave a message and they will get back to you as soon as they can). 
  • Children will not be allowed to bring bags into school, they will not require PE kit or lunch.
  • Reading books and homework will not be sent home.
  • No PPE will be worn in school by pupils or staff, except in a case of suspected infection (following Government guidance)
