Picnic Sessions.

We are looking forward to welcoming children back as part of our end of term picnic sessions. More information is contained in our Picnic Sessions Parent Handbook. Don’t forget to complete the survey to indicate whether you child/ren will attend.

Phased reopening of the school.

From June 1st, we are anticipating the numbers of children attending school to increase, both as the numbers of key workers grow and as we consider welcoming back EYFS, Y1 and Y6 children. We need to ensure groups of children are consistent and make use of dedicated spaces around the school. In order to facilitate this, our opening will need to be phased. 

Initially, we will be open to children of key workers and vulnerable children, and these groupings will be made consistent and be allocated dedicated spaces around school and new drop off / collection times. New groupings will be organised by year group – your child will be in a bubble of children from their year group cohort. 

This will be re-evaluated after two weeks and if we feel we are able, we will consider opening the school to EYFS. After this, we will then consider opening to Y1, and lastly Y6 if we are safely able to do so and have the capacity to continue to offer safe provision for our vulnerable and key worker children.

For parents and carers who are now supporting their children with home learning, we have shared information about how to access our remote learning classrooms. We will be sharing further resources in the coming weeks, and many helpful websites can be found in the parent hub section of our website.

We are very grateful for your support, patience and understanding during these tricky times.
