WIDER OPENING SEPTEMBER 2020

|

Thursday 3rd September 2020

 

Unlike the choice given last Summer term, this is a compulsory date for children to return. We have now received some further guidance from the Department for Education as to what this provision should look like. We have had to change school considerably over the last school year and routines we had in place worked well and children adapted well to them. Although there has been some relaxing of these restrictions, such as larger class sized bubbles now being allowed, many of the restrictions and routines will remain in place, at least for the first Autumn half-term.
I have completed a thorough risk assessment which once approved by Governors can be found on our school website on the link below:

Our School Aims

|

 

Learn...  We encourage our children to achieve their true potential and to take full advantage of all opportunities offered to equip them for their spiritual and educational journey.

 

Love…  We believe that each child is a unique creation belonging to God and made in His image.  We want our children to recognise this, as they develop their self-esteem and build relationships.

 

Respect…  We support our children in appreciating their individual talents and in valuing the gifts given to others.  We encourage the children to recognise that they are all equally valued within school and the wider community.

 

These challenging times...
