On this page you will find some of the information you need to prepare your child/children for returning to school on the Tuesday 7th September 2021. 


An updated COVID risk assessment is available for you to read at the bottom of the home page of this website.


We are maintaining the staggered timings as we being in September (as this is what was communicated to families in the Summer). We will be reviewing this arrangement in the initial days.

Arrival and Collection

Parents are asked to arrive promptly for the time that they have been allocated. At the start of the day the class will be invited into the school grounds to meet their class teacher. During collection, parents will be invited to enter the school grounds at their allotted time. Classes will be brought into the playground and your child will be sent to you. 

New to school?

Welcome to all our new children and families joining us for the first time. We recognise that for some pupils their first day at school may be a bit worrying. Reception and nursery children have been given staggered start days and times to enable staff to give as much 1-1 attention as possible. We ask that you encourage your child to enter without you but if this is not possible we are able to invite you into the classroom. Please be patient and allow extra waiting time to support us in managing this very important first step for your child. If your child struggles to settle we continue to offer 1-1 bespoke plans with you and your family to ensure a smooth transition. Please talk to your class teacher if you are worried. We are here to help. 



Track and Trace

The government requires us to communicate to parents and visitors that we will be fully complying with the track and trace system. If there is a confirmed case of Covid-19 with connection to the school will be expected to fully co-operate with track and trace requirements. 




Contacting school

If you have concerns, want to share some information with your class teacher, ask a question or need to meet with a member of staff please phone the school office.
