Stay at home

It's been announced that phased school returns could happen from 1 June (after half term) at the earliest. The Prime Minister has said this will be done in stages, beginning with Reception, Year 1 and Year 6.

We understand our families will have questions after the announcement. We will be reviewing the guidance the government will publish later and will be in touch with you as soon as possible.
