Getting ready for school:

During the school closure many families will have changed their daily routines and way of life.  To help your child with the transition back into school, please consider the following points;

  • Set an alarm and get up and dressed at the same time each day
  • Encourage a good bedtime routine
  • Talk to your child about returning to school and explain that their day, class, classroom and teacher may be different
  • You could also walk past the school during your daily exercise to see all of the lovely work on display

Our advice to you:

  • Adhere to the school sickness policy – please do not send your child to school if they are ill in any way whatsoever
  • If your child or anyone in your household is displaying signs of Coronavirus please do not come to school and follow the strict isolation procedure set by the government (14 days isolation for all members of the household)
  • If any child or adult at school has a confirmed case of Coronavirus, all children and adults from that class will be asked to isolate for 14 days
  • Please be prompt when dropping off and collecting children to ensure social distancing is maintained as best as possible
  • If you decide to send your child to school at a date later than Monday 1st June please telephone the school office as we will need at least 3 days’ notice
  • Unfortunately, at the present time, we will not be able to provide an open Breakfast Club – it will only be available for those children who are attending as Key Workers’ children.  This will be kept under review
  • Ensure long hair is tied up
  • At the end of every school day, when returning home, remove shoes and coats at the front door
  • When you get home ask children to get washed and changed  - please wash their school clothes daily to prevent the spread of infection


Drop off and Collection Guidance

Please look at the table carefully to find out about the changes that have been made to the start and finish of the school day.


Drop off



Pick up time





Year 1




Year 6




Key Worker



From 8.00am

(only if attending for breakfast)

9:00am for children not having breakfast




Please make sure you arrive promptly – members of staff will be by the main playground entrance gate to greet the children and direct them to their group room.    

Key Points:

  1.  Due to the social distancing requirements, Government Guidance states that parents/carers will only be able to drop their children off at the designated area.  There will be markers set out on the floor at 2 metres apart to help you keep a safe distance.  Please do not enter school building or go beyond the marked area.
  2.  If you have siblings in different classes they can be dropped off at your earliest child’s time.
  3.   Please collect your child at the correct time using the same system as the morning drop off.  If you have more than one child, collect your children at the earliest child’s time.

  4. If your child is in Year 6 and you would like them to walk home alone, you will need to give consent to the office, when you confirm your child’s place

Language of the term

Language of the Term in Term 6   

  • We are pleased to announce that our Language of the Term in Term 6 will be Japanese 

  • This was originally planned to tie-in with this summer’s Olympics and although the Olympics is sadly not going ahead, as we are still planning Topic work in school focussing on Japan it will be exciting to learn some of the language of the country too. 

Why not use the link to the website below to learn some words in Japanese together at home?
