Dear Parents and Friends,


We are very much looking forward to welcoming all the children back on September 3rd and hope that the situation regarding Covid-19 remains stable and continues to improve.


We want to give the children the very best opportunity to catch up with their learning, to resume their friendships and to feel comfortable coming back to the classroom. In order to ensure the best possible circumstances for this to happen, all children will initially be returning to the teacher, the class and the classroom that they left in March, and then will be handed over to their new teacher at the October half-term. Your child will be considered to be in their new school year group from the day that they return. Details of your child's schedule for return will be sent to you before the end of term.


In order to follow the government guidance for stringent infection control and site safety, we are staggering entry and exit times when the children return. This means that we will be using four gates around the site and three different times of entry and exit. Full information for your child's specific schedule will be sent to you by email. Please read the details carefully and ensure that you are familiar with what you need to do. This will ensure the safety of the children and the whole school community.


Thank you, as always, for your continuing support and cooperation during these challenging times.


With very best wishes,


Avril, Staff and Governors.
