‘Where everyone is able to achieve their best’

June 1st Information

We are opening on Monday 1st June to children in Nursery, Reception, Year 1, Year 6 and key worker children who have already informed the school office (or completed the survey). Please DO NOT turn up with your child on Monday if you have not informed us they will be returning.


Here is some key information to remember if your child is returning on Monday:


  • Children should wear uniform with trainers, or a similar item if they have outgrown their uniform.
  • Children may only bring the following to school:

- a water bottle (ALL children must bring one each day)

- lunch box (if needed)

- coat/sunhat dependent on the weather

- a bag of spare clothes to remain at school for the week (if children have daily accidents)

  • All messages for teachers/the office MUST be via email or phone. Parents/carers will not be permitted to approach classrooms or the school office.
  • Any children who will be accessing breakfast club MUST be booked in through the office. DO NOT just turn up for breakfast club as we will be unable to cater for you.
  • If your child, or anyone in their household, is showing symptoms of Coronavirus you MUST NOT enter the school site. You should follow government advice regarding self-isolation.
  • You MUST enter the school site through your designated gate, within your staggered time, and follow the one-way system. 2 metre social distancing MUST be followed at ALL times.
