Coming back to school

We have put together some information that will help you to understand the adaptations to the provision we have put in place during the phased return for pupils during the Covid - 19 crisis. 

The safety and wellbeing of children, staff, parents and carers is our utmost priority and we have a clear action plan, measured against risk assessments, in place.  Things will be different for a few weeks.  We will be working tirelessly to make sure that your child’s wellbeing and involvement remains high and their enjoyment of school and all it has to offer continues to grow.

Welcome back Year 6

Welcome back Key Worker children 


Our playtimes will be staggered.  Not all the children will be on the playground at the same time.  The children will access break times in their class groups of fifteen children and with their key adults.  We have carefully considered activities that children can enjoy with their adult whilst ensuring social distancing.  Below are some examples of these activities;  


The classrooms will look a little different.  Here are some photos:

Coming into school 

After half term we will create a video to help you and your child to access the school site at ‘pick up’ and ‘drop off’ times.  

We have staggered the start and finish times for the school day to support social distancing.  


We will have one way systems in place across the wider school site that will be clearly signed with the words ‘IN’ and ‘OUT’ in yellow lettering on the ground.  This is to support social distancing.  

We will mark spots where you can wait safely for your teachers in the playground.  These will be bright yellow sunshines marked on the ground.  They will support the two metre distancing needed to safely drop off and pick up your child.  

Don’t worry if this still sounds a bit confusing, we will explain it all in more detail in our video tutorial.

Travelling to and from school

Wherever possible, we ask that you walk to school.
