Welcome Back!

We are really looking forward to welcoming back all pupils on Thursday 3rd September.

Although we have had many children in school prior to the summer holidays, we know that there are many of you who have not been in school for a long time. We are looking forward to seeing you all again and know that it may feel very strange for some of you.

This is the reason that we have decided to leave you all with your previous teachers for the first two weeks, so you all have a familiar face to welcome you back! We will introduce you to your new teachers and classrooms later on.

There will be lots of staff about to help you find your way when you first come back, and there is a lot of information on our website to help you too.

If you look under the “Classes” heading you will see a copy of the letter you received in your report with your start and finish times, the door you need to come and out of etc.

If you look under the “HT Blog,” you will find some information about how school will be organised and what it will look like when you return.

Please don’t worry. We are all working together to make sure that everyone has a great first day back at school. You just need to turn up in your uniform, with a water bottle!

See you soon!

Mrs McDermott.
