School Reopening (8th March 2021)

Dear Parents/Carers,

Please find detailed below some very important information regarding the return to school for all pupils.

Following the Government announcement earlier this term, school will reopen fully (nursery to Year 6) from Monday 8th March

It has made been made clear, that schooling returns to being compulsory from Monday 8th March and therefore all children should return.


As it stands, we need to plan to maintain social-distancing measures – including staggered start times, lunch times and finish times as well as the continued high level of hygiene and cleanliness throughout school, including the wearing of masks when approaching staff in school.

See the start and end times below for each class and the attached map showing collection and drop off points.

Breakfast Club and ASC

Breakfast club and After School Club will continue to operate as before lockdown. Breakfast club will start at 8am meanwhile After School Club will operate until 5.15pm and cost £3.00.


As a school, our expectations are extremely high. Therefore, we expect every child to once again start attending school in the correct uniform at all times.

This includes:

· White Polo T-shirt

· Royal blue jumper/cardigan

· Grey/Black trousers/skirt

· Black school shoes (no trainers of any description)

· Black blazer and ties for Year 5/6

· Ties for KS2

PE is a statutory subject and will be taught twice throughout the week. All children (reception to Year 6) PE kits will be provided by school with your child’s name clearly labelled and will be washed after each session at school. You will need to provide black gym shoes.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued support this year and in particular during the COVID 19 lockdown period.

Ms Killeen
