COVID19 return to school


We are all looking forward to welcoming children and families back to school in September.   We have written to families with information about the staggered start and finish times and other key information for the transition period in September.  These letters can also be found in our Parent Secure area and on our App.  Passwords for the secure area were emailed to all parents, but if you have lost it, please contact the shcool office. 


We are working hard throughout the summer to ensure we are ready to open in September and whilst we understand that some of the meausres we have temporaily put in place might be frustrating e.g. staggered start and end times, please rest assured that we will constantly review our provision in September whilst adhering to government guidance every step of the way to ensure our children, families and staff are safe during this time.   Please do check the links below, so you can see this guidance for yourself:-



In the meantime, we continue to gather questions from families and ask that families take a look at our frequently asked questions section on this page to find the answer to any queries, comments or concerns you may have.  If you cannot find the answer to your questions, please email us via our new email address for Covid Return to School email address via and we will do our best to answer your question and post the response on this page.  Thank you so much.

Supporting your child's well being when returning to school


Check in with them regularly and remind them that:


It’s normal to feel scared – nerves actually help us prepare for challenges.

It may take time for them to feel settled, and that’s OK.

They might get things wrong as they get used to a new situation.

They’ve coped with big changes in the past and can do it again.

They can talk to you or someone at school if they’re worried.
