Reception, Years 1 and 6

School has partially reopened for pupils in Reception, Years 1 and 6. Please read our Risk Assessment in the newsletter section of our website to see the safety measures we have put in place. If you decide to send your child back, please remember that we cannot guarantee social distancing or that your children will be completely safe from the virus. We will only be able to admit more pupils in these year groups if space allows.


Year 6          9.15am - 3.15pm

Year 1          9.00am - 3.00pm

Reception     8.45am - 2.45pm


If you wish for your child to return, please contact the school office for confirmation. Don't just turn up unannounced as we will need to explain plans and procedures to you. Remember that there are no fines or penalties this term if you feel it is safer to keep your child at home. Thank you.


Provision for Key Workers' children and vulnerable pupils is ongoing, using a booking system.
