Thank you everyone for your patience and understanding regarding the opening and closing of our school at different times. Our system is working well, and we are pleased with how well children are being dropped off and collected from school. Please continue to ensure that your child is dropped off at the correct time, so that no-one is late. It is vital that children arrive on time for their learning.


We continue to follow all of the latest COVID guidance and our systems of cleaning the school throughout the day, as well as ensuring there is plenty of hand washing at key times, continue to operate well. Children are learning well in their bubbles, and only mixing with children in their year groups at break and lunchtimes. Again, we are pleased with how this is working, and this will continue to be the case until there are any changes to Government Guidance.
