Update - 25th September

We've had another lovely week at school, helped by the beautiful weather and the children have been making the most of the outdoor playtimes. A special well done to the new Foundation Stage children - I can't believe how quickly they have got used to "big school"!

Arrangements

Thank you for your continued support during these challenging times as we all try to keep each other safe. In order to do this, we have adapted our procedures to meet the ever-changing circumstances presented by COVID 19. From next week, we are asking all parents and carers to wear a face covering when on the school site - the huge surge in cases both locally and nationally means we must follow the government's recommendations and do everything we can to prevent an outbreak. Staff are now wearing face coverings when outside their bubble areas and when meeting with staff from outside their bubble.

It will be very unfortunate if we end up with more staff self-isolating as we are likely to have to close year groups due to lack of staff, so it is very important that parents do not approach staff at the beginning and end of day unless wearing a face covering and keeping a 2m distance. If you need to have a more confidential conversation, please phone us or email and we will call you back.

Please read below for clarification of drop off and pick up procedures.
