September - How will it work?


September - How will it work?


Dear Parents,


I wanted to update you with our initial plans for September regarding the full reopening of our school. I am receiving lots of questions during our staggered drop offs which is always warmly welcomed and helps me plan for timely communication with families.


So, as we navigate our way through the Government’s guidelines, there are some key themes that I am already able to share with you to help you plan for the safe return of your children.


The September return will be characterised by:


  • All children are expected to return from Friday 4th September. This means that the usual rules on school attendance will apply.
  • Each class will be a ‘bubble’ similarly to how we have operated since 1st June.
  • We will minimise contact or mixing of children and staff between bubbles throughout the school week.
  • We will continue to operate staggered starts and finishes to the school day.
  • Rota systems for school lunches and break times will continue to minimise contact with other bubbles.
  • Enhanced cleaning arrangements will continue.
  • Robust hand and respiratory hygiene will continue.
  • Classrooms will be arranged so that children are facing forward towards their teacher.


We will continue to update our risk assessments with further detailed information to follow. Please know that your child’s safety as well as that of staff will continue to be at the heart of our decision making. 


Yours sincerely,



Mrs Hannah Beckett
