School Reopening Plans

Details of how it will work. Click here for more information.

We are very much looking forward to welcoming children back to school.

All children in all year groups will be expected to return in September. It is not optional and all parents will need to send their children in to school each day. I hope that you can trust us that we will make sure that everything is in place that needs to be to ensure the school is as safe as it can be.

Different year groups will start back on different days so that children and parents can safely get used to the different entrances, queuing systems, etc. that we must have in place.

Please note that we will be operating a one-way system. The Hudson Road gate and the pedestrian gate to the left of the swimming pool will be entry only. The pedestrian gate near the main school office and the gate on to Victoria Lane, near the bicycle sheds will be exit only.

All entry/exit and drop off points will be clearly labelled and there will be plenty of staff on hand to help you.

What to bring to school

Children must wear full school uniform as per the uniform policy which is available on the website. We would ask that children do not bring bags in to school and that packed lunches are brought in a disposable container where possible. The school will provide children with their own individual set of stationery to use in class.

Buying school uniform

School uniform is available to purchase online and collect from school. Please log in to your ParentPay account to select and pay for school uniform: jumpers, cardigans, fleeces and book bags. They will then be available to collect from school from Thursday 3 September.

Lost property

We will displaying lost property outside the school on the first week back. Any items not claimed by the end of the day will be disposed of.
