Schools reopening 8th March

Dear parent/carer

We are delighted to be welcoming all of our pupils back to school on Monday 8th March.

This will be an exciting time for many of our children, being reunited with their friends and school staff after an extended period of lockdown.

It is only natural that some children may feel trepidation, so please be assured that all our staff will be ready to support them on their return.

All of our safety measures and precautions will remain in place here at school, both inside and out, in order to stem any transmission of the virus. (This includes twice-weekly lateral flow testing for staff.)

In terms of your safety at drop-off and pick-up, please continue to wear a mask, observe the one-way systems and follow social distancing guidelines.

School start and finish times remain the same as those we had in place at the autumn term:

  • Year 6 – Access the site via the gates at Hollies Road only.  Arrive between 8.45-8.55am only; leave between 3.15-3.25pm only.

In the meantime, we will be in touch with any further updates prior to children returning.

For our remote learners, teachers will be discussing the return to school with them later next week in preparation.

Again, thank-you for your support and commitment throughout – hopefully life after lockdown is in sight!

Many thanks
