On 15th June Mr Kidwell & Mrs Diamond wrote to all parents and carers regarding the waiting list for a place from 22nd June onwards and other arrangements over the next few weeks. Please read the full letter here.

 

 

On 7th June, Mr Kidwell and Rev Smith (Chair of Governors) wrote to all parents confirming our plans for the wider opening of school from 8th June 2020. Please read the full letter here.

From tomorrow, we are inviting children in specific year groups to return to school in a phased way:

8th June  

Children of key workers and vulnerable groups

Year 1 children whose parents have requested a place plus the above

9th June  

Year 6 children whose parents have requested a place plus the categories above

10th June  

Reception children whose parents have requested a place plus the categories above.

11th June  

Nursery children whose parents have requested a place plus the categories above.

You will not be penalised if you choose not to send your child to school, and we will continue providing home learning for pupils not in school. A more detailed letter has been sent to those families who have been allocated a place in one of the above groups.

Please do not send your child to school unless you have contacted us and been allocated a place. Please note that we are not now accepting any further requests for places; we will review this in two weeks' time.

In line with  Government and Local Authority guidance and advice, we have put a number of measures in place in order to reduce risk to our community. We are all embarking on new territory as we welcome larger groups of children and staff into school and will keep our arrangements under constant review.

In light of the latest announcements and guidance about social distancing, all planned events for the rest of the summer term are cancelled. We have also decided that we will use video conferencing for Staff and Governing Body meetings/communications during closure.

Parents are also advised to read the government's guidance on:
