School Information

(Updated 19 April 2021)

Dear Parents/Carers

Welcome back everyone. We have updated our risk assessment to reflect our move to year group bubbles from the start of this term. We continue to monitor the situation both locally and nationally and feel confident that we can make this change without increasing the overall risk of transmission. The majority of our controls remain in place and we urge you all to continue to maintain a social distance when on site and wear face coverings. We will continue to remind children of the importance of keeping their hands clean and maintaining space between each other.  Staff continue to wear face coverings in school and children may also wear face masks if you wish.

Thanks to all of you who have generously donated to the school either through the Conqueror Challenge, The PTA Smarties challenge or even given up your time and skills for the school.
