Spring Opening Update
We cannot wait to see your children return to school on 8th March 2021. There have been updates to guidance covering the period from 8th March and the changes will replicate school operation from that which was in place during the Autumn term of last year. Rest assured, we have made the school environment as safe as possible for the children to return and our teaching and learning will be as effective as it has always been.

For a complete update and guide please see: Spring Opening Update for Parents & Children (1).pdf
