Reminder: Returning to school in September

We hope you are all keeping well and enjoying the summer holidays.

 

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you and your child back to school in September.   

 

Staff training days will be held on Tuesday, 1st and Wednesday, 2nd September, school will be closed to pupils on these days.  School will re-open to pupils for a staggered start from Thursday, 3rd September, this will help with transition and settling the children back into the routine of school, and help families become familiar with our new routines.  This will also allow your child’s previous teacher to work with your child in their new classroom on the first day.  We have planned a recovery curriculum which will be based on ‘All About Me’ and working from the book ‘Here We Are’ by Oliver Jeffers which explores the theme of coming back together as a community in our school setting. 

 

These are the start dates for each year group from September (please remember these are the new year groups from September):

  • Thursday, 3rd – Reception Group A 
  • Thursday, 3rd – Years 2, 4 and 6
  • Friday, 4th – Reception Group B, Years 1, 3 and 5
  • Monday, 7th – Reception Group A
  • Monday, 7th – Years 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 return full time
  • Tuesday, 8th – Reception Group B
  • Wednesday, 9th – Reception begin full time
  • Monday, 14th – Staggered start for Nursery pupils (we will be writing to you individually to let you know visit dates for children and parents)

  • Key Stage 2 – please limit to 1 adult to drop off/collect children
  • Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 can be dropped off at their classroom door from 8.40 am to 8.50 am, and collected from the appointed yard (Years 5 and 6 top junior yard, Years 3 and 4 lower junior yard) between 2.55 pm and 3.05 pm.
  • Foundation Phase – please limit to 1 adult to drop off/collect children between 8.45 am and 8.55 am and collect at the same point from 2.50 pm and 3.00 pm
