We are looking forward to welcoming ALL children back to school in September.

I know that these have been very challenging times for many of you and your families; hopefully we will all begin to move on from these. At school we have really missed everyone and are looking forward to getting some sense of normality back in September. We have thought through our plans really carefully to ensure that we have done all that we can to help everyone stays safe and well.

Please take time to look through this page in detail. There is a lot of information but it should help to explain the environment your children will return back to in the new school year. You can download our Looking Forward to September guidebook by clicking here, which includes all the information on this page and more detail about some elements.

Wishing you a restful summer.

Kind Regards,
Elaine Lynch and the Staff Team.

New Resources

To minimise the sharing of resources, at the start of term each pupil will be issued with a brand new:

  • Individual named water bottle.
  • Toolkit – stocked with essentials including a pencil, fine liner and coloured pencils plus other classroom essentials.
  • NEW for September -we will be issuing each child with a PE bag for their kit. Clean PE kits should be brought to school on a Monday and will be sent home on a Friday to be washed ready for the next week.

Changes to the school day

PLEASE NOTE – from September, the timings of the school day will be changing to the following:

RECEPTION
8.50 to 3.10 pm Monday to Thursday

8.50 to 12.10 noon on Friday

YEARS 1 – 6
8.45 to 3.20 pm Monday to Thursday

Could we ask that children do not bring rucksacks or bags into school. No equipment is needed and children should only bring their PE kits and packed lunch boxes.
