A huge thank you to former pupil Micah Richards for giving our children even better and bigger dreams to look forward to when they go to sleep tonight.
Below is a summary of the plan for returning to school this September. A The full reopening plan was sent to all families in July and is available here.

‘It was a real privilege to be able to see so many of our year 6 students this morning, as we celebrated their time with us and said goodbye. As staff, we are always so proud when we get to the end of year 6; always with a tear or two to shed! But this year was even more precious, as we were able to see so many that we have not seen for months.
Mr Kay and Miss Hall did a wonderful job, organising the event and lots of other staff assisted too.
We were delighted to be able to award Liam and Chloe as our Barbara Armstrong Award winners. They both were presented with a £50 note and will receive a trophy and the plaque in the entrance will be engraved with their names. This is a real honour and you can see on the website the criteria for this award.
Mr Moore put together another of his outstanding films, with the music and photos synced so beautifully. How does he do it!? Well, that is why we call him Mr Magic after all!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the parents of our Y6 students, as you have been a tremendous support over the years. We have journeyed together and it has been quite a journey!
Wishing you all the very best.
I am pleased to share with you our Reopening Plan for September, which has been approved by the Governing Body this afternoon. A copy will be sent to all parents this afternoon.
Please do take the time to read through it. If, after reading this document, you would like clarification on anything, please do email me directly on firstname.lastname@example.org .
I do appreciate your patience, as we have worked through the detail of the Dfe guidance.
As shared with you in our newsletters and previous updates, we aim to send you all the details of our reopening plans, at the end of this week, following Governing Body approval on Friday afternoon.
As you can imagine, the Dfe guidance came out on the 2nd July and we have been working tirelessly to ensure we have thought about every aspect of reopening with 650 children and over 100 staff.
These have included detailed meetings with other groups of Heads, the Local Authority, expert medical information and up to date guidance.
Our aim is for all pupils to be back in school in the first week but with very clear, meticulous guidance for all stakeholders.
We want everyone to feel safe returning, maintaining all the tight systems that we have had in place since March, when we had at least 50 children in every day.
I appreciate your frustrations and am very aware that many of you will be facing job insecurity and potential redundancy. Please be assured that by the end of the first week of term, ALL pupils will be back in full time (new Reception and Nursery children will continue with their phase introduction to school, as per our normal practice).
If you have any queries, AFTER that plan is sent out to you then please just email me directly.
