We have added an additional PD Day at the beginning of the Autumn term and children will now return to school on Thursday 3rd September.
From September, following Government guidelines, we will have a staggered start to the beginning and end of the day to enable class bubbles to be kept separated on the playground.
Drop-off times in the morning will be:
Pick up times in the afternoon will be:
We will continue with the one way system to enter and exit the school grounds. Parents and children will enter via the Buildwas Road/Eco Garden gate on to the top playground and then leave by the Dale End gate next to the bottom playground. We ask that only one parent brings their child/ren to school.
Classes will have separate morning breaks and lunch breaks so that only one class at a time is on the playground.
We hope to be able offer some after school clubs for Years 3 – 6 but these will only go ahead if we get enough interest. More information will be sent out when we return in September.
We hope you are well and safe at this time.
We just wanted to update you, that obviously with the decreased demand and also with the use of our facilities for school at this time we will not open for the rest of this term.
However we will be endeavouring to open for September, and will aim to be as flexible as we can be to support you with the transition of what the new school day may look like, your personal work return and also guidelines that may be in place at that time.
We are monitoring the situation closely and are planning measures that follow the current strict guidelines as our minimum, whilst we await any updates further.
We will plan to be in touch again at the start of August with booking forms, so we can start to understand demand – as you can imagine we may need to limit numbers due to space requirements – and will work closely with you to be as flexible as we possibly can. If anyone has visibility of what they may need in September, please do let us know.
Have a wonderful and safe summer holiday and will hopefully see you all soon!
We’re really sorry that we haven’t been able to collect and sell used school uniform this term as planned but we haven’t been able to find a safe way to collect and store the clothes. We really hope that we will be able to start collecting again in the new school year, so, if you have items that no longer fit please:
1. Pass them on safely to someone smaller than you who you know
2. Hang on to them until September when we are hoping to organise a collection
3. Contact email@example.com to arrange a safe exchange if you will not be returning to school in September
We would welcome any of the following washed items:
• school branded jumpers and cardigans, polo shirts and PE t-shirts
• shirts and blouses
• trousers and shorts
• skirts and pinafores
• summer dresses
