Reopening Information

Please find above a letter from Mr Welsh regarding the reopening of schools in September 2020.

Additional Information and a Risk Assessment is also included.

Many Thanks



Dear Parents and Carers,
I hope that you are all well.
We have received a number of questions about how reopening will work and what is expected.
I have tried my best to answer the questions below:

• SCHOOL UNIFORM – Please could children wear school uniform when we come back, if you require any new uniform please ring the office on the 1st or 2nd September to organise purchase.

• DROP OFF AND PICK UP – Please can you do your best to be on time as we have had to stagger drop off and pick up times to limit the number of people on site at any one time. To help with this can only one person come to pick up/drop off so that Social Distancing is easier to maintain.

• BREAKFAST CLUB – We are unable to offer an official Breakfast Club at this time, if you are a Key Worker and this causes an issue for you please contact me at school on the 1st or 2nd September and we will do our best to assist if we can.

• HOT DINNERS – Hot dinners will be available on a limited menu from the first day back.

• FURTHER INFORMATION – Please do look at our Website and/or Facebook page for information on timings etc.

We hope that things will run as smoothly as they did when we partially reopened but I am sure that we will encounter some challenges getting 321 children back into school – if anything is presenting a challenge please do let us know and we will do our best to address it for you.

Enjoy the rest of the holiday.

Take care

Stay Safe

Dave Hill


Further Information:

When dropping off children please do them in rota order – this may entail you dropping off one and then exiting through Gate 2 then coming in at the other gate with your other child/ren. We understand that this may involve a bit of walking around but it will help keep the site flowing. Similarly pick up the earliest finishing child first and then collect the other/s. If you have children that finish at the same time – please pick up the youngest one and then collect the older one. We will try to make it as smooth a process as possible and may adapt this in the light of experience on reopening.

New Reception children do not have to wear school uniform when they attend their taster sessions during the first week.
