Around 180 pupils safely returned to school before the end of last term. We put in place a range of effective protective measures, for pupils and staff, to reduce the risk of transmission of coronavirus and to ensure that the pupils who returned were able to experience as normal and full a school experience as was safe, practical and permitted according to government guidelines.

In September, we will be maintaining many of the control measures and procedures that were put in place last term.

These include staggered start and finish times – please see new times above.

In September, only pupils will be able to use the back gate to access the school site. A member of staff will greet pupils on the path to ensure that they enter the school site safely. Pupils must say goodbye to other family members before they reach the member of staff on the path and then walk themselves into school. We will ensure that, where necessary, pupils are directed or accompanied to their classrooms until they are familiar with the routine. This measure is to reduce congestion on site and around the school gates and to ensure a one way system at the back gate. These arrangements worked really well last term and are necessary to help minimise the number of contacts that pupils and staff have.

If you would prefer to walk your child onto the playground, then you must use the front gate to enter and exit the site, where a one way system is also in place, to minimise face-to-face contact.
