Updated Staggered Reopening

(Updated Thursday August 27th)

We will operate a staggered reopening to school, beginning Tuesday 1st September. This is to allow us to evaluate the effectiveness of our operating procedures (such as thermal entry points) whilst at less than 100% capacity.

This is for the health and safety of the whole school community, and we trust that you are supportive of us in taking these steps.

FS1, FS2 and Year 1 children will be allocated a ‘bubble’ - A and B (plus C & D in FS1) . This will be communicated to you before the start of the school year.


The table below shows, for the first week of term, which day’s your children will be
IN school. On the other days they should remain at home.

From Week 2, we expect to run a full timetable, with 100% of children in school
apart from FS1, FS2 and Year 1 who will continue this staggered attendance for an extra week.
