Coronavirus (Covid-19): Update September 2020

Dear all

We are delighted to welcome all pupils back to school from 3 September 2020, particularly those pupils who have not been in school since March. 

We know how challenging it has been for everyone over the past few months and we are determined to make the return to school as smooth and as safe as possible. 

Please click here for a video explaining the measures we have introduced and what they look like in school, including our drop-off and pick-up arrangements. Please note that we are operating a staggered start and end of the day and a one-way system. It is really important that you follow the timings specified as this will prevent crowding. 


We are following all government guidelines regarding Coronavirus (Covid-19). Please click here to view our full school Covid-19 Risk Assessment, which is regularly reviewed and updated (latest 19 October). You may also wish to read our subject specific risk assessments for P.E., Music, and our risk assessment for Safeguarding.


Our Covid-19 Frequently Asked Questions Guide for Parents will support you if your child is unwell and you are not sure what to do. If you suspect your child has Covid-19, call 111 and do not bring your child into school unless advised that it is safe to do so. 

Home learning:

In the event of a local lockdown or if a class bubble needs to be dissolved, please see the Learning from Home area of this website for guidance and support to continue learning from home.


If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Take care and stay safe,


Mr William Power

Head teacher

Mrs Harry Paget-Wall Collins
Executive Principal
