​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Covid-19 Organisation​​

​Dear parents and carers, over the next few days we will update this page with information about school re-opening and how this will be organised. If you have a question that has not been answered, please help us by clicking on this link and asking us. We will update the frequently asked questions with this information periodically, which will help everyone. Please be advised that school must remain flexible in light of Government guidance though, which may mean we have to make changes to what is written here. We will work hard to communicate this in advance ​where we can.

We are really looking forward to inviting everyone back to school!​

Key Important Information​​

​Year 6 are due to return to school on Tuesday, September 8th.

Year 3 will return on Wednesday, September 9th

Years 4 and 5 will join them on Thursday, September 10th

Children in 34D, or 56N, will re-start school on the same day as the rest of their year group.

​Attendance procedures will return to normal and we will be contacting any families whose children are not in school without a recorded reason, as we normally would. We recognise there are some families in exceptional circumstances and we encourage them to get in touch with us if there are problems with attendance.

Children will have zoned breaktimes and staggered lunchtimes, to help reduce opportunities for the spread of infection. 

Year 3 will start their dinner at 11:30 until 12:30. 

Year 4 will have dinner from 12:00 until 12:45

Year 5 will have dinner from 12:30 until 13:15

Year 6 will have dinner from 12:45 until 13:30

Year 6 parents may want to send their child with an additional snack, as they are waiting slightly longer to start their dinner.

We expect children to attend in uniform - our policy has not altered and can be found by following the 'school uniform' link

Frequently Asked Questions

​​​Please see answers to some of the questions you may have. We will update this section periodically as parent queries arise.

Parent Code of Conduct

We will expect all parents to follow this simple code of conduct in order to keep our whole community as safe as possible:

Pick up and drop off zone map


Sharing our expectations with your children:

​Here is our first draft of the presentation that we will use to share our expectations with your children on their first day back. It is a template that all teachers will use and adapt to ensure it is appropriate for all the children in their class to understand: ​Keeping ourselves safe at school during the coronavirus (1).pptx

Helpful Links

We will continue to monitor symptoms that could be linked to coronavirus really carefully and will send children home if they have any of the identified systems. We expect parent co-operation with this, to keep everyone safe. If your child has one of these symptoms as the day starts, we would expect you to keep them at home:


A high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)

A new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)

A loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
