School Closure Information
Phased Return to School
As of 1st June 2020, the phased return to primary schools will begin. Following Government Guidance and Rigorous Risk Assessments the school will begin to open for an extended range of staff and children. The phased reopening will be as follows:
- June 1st 2020 - Staff who are able to, return to school
- June 8th 2020 - Year 6 pupils return to school

Based on our risk assessments, we are not able to facilitate children from our Early Years at this time - No Viridis, Nursery or Reception children will be facilitated for now. We will still continue to support children of our Critical Key Workers and those on our Vulnerable Children’s list.
