Can you find 5 minutes every night to read with your child? It makes all the difference!

Social Distancing in school

As the school opens for some of your children, we have made appropriate adjustments to the school building, as well as some of changes to the structures of the school day, to ensure your children are safe in line with government guidelines.

Social distancing notices are displayed throughout school

School Equipment


Where possible, children will have their own equipment. Other equipment used, such as IPads, will be used by a single child and then cleaned before the next user.  Soft play equipment has been removed from early years.

Year 6 individual equipment

Areas around school


There will be a timetable in place for areas of the school such as the use of the hall and ICT Suite.  For these parts of the school, only one group will be allowed to use the room on any one given day.


The outdoor area will also be managed to enable all of the school grounds to be used to avoid two groups coming together.
