Tutoring Funding: Teacher to work 8 hours per week on timetabled maths intervention. Three week rolling cycle to ensure children to not miss out on curriculum time. January - July 2022



Our school family​ has been working hard since the first national lockdown March - June 2020 through a second national lockdown January - March 2021 to keep everyone happy and safe in school. Please see risk assessments and phased recovery plans for actions taken including: staggered start and finish times to the school day, working in bubbles, lunchtime arrangements and sanitising arrangements. 


Our protocols for dropping off and collecting children June 2020 to July 2021:

In order to reduce the number of adults dropping off and collecting children at any one time, we will allocate ten-minute time slots to parents of children in individual classes. Our plans ensure there was is change to the length of time your children spend in school. Parents are asked to adhere to these times. In the case of families with children in different classes, we request that all siblings are dropped off together at the allocated time slot for the youngest child in the family, and that they were collected together at the allocated time slot for the eldest child in the family.
