Preparing to return to school

The school is putting careful plans in place for a gradual return for some of our children, in line with government guidance.  This page will provide information about our arrangements for this, and tips for preparing children.  School will be a very different place to previously, in order to try and comply with social distancing guidance, and we hope the information here will enable parents and carers to explain to children what they may expect when they return.

On Friday 22nd May, we sent out letters to families in Year 6, Year 1, Reception and Nursery with information about changes to school life, and requesting a response to a survey, asking parents to let us know whether or not their child will be returning to school.  Please use the links below to access the letter for your year group.
