Dear Parents and Friends,


We are very much looking forward to welcoming all the children back in September and hope that the situation regarding Covid-19 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. In this way, their teachers can give them seven weeks of intensive catch-up and ensure that they make maximum progress, before handing them over to their new teacher after the October half-term. We also hope that returning to a familiar environment will give your children a sense of security and wellbeing after such a long time away from school.


We also intend to have a normal parents’ evening together with end-of-term reports with your child’s current teacher before this handover occurs.


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.


Rest assured, we are following the government guidance for stringent infection control and site hygiene to ensure the safest possible return for the children and all the school community in September.


With very best wishes,


Avril, Staff and Governors.
