Daily Schedule

The School Day

COVID 19 - Since our return to school in September 2021, we have followed the Government's road map and guidance, gradually returning to pre-Covid routines etc. We hold a clear and proportionate Contingency Plan that will act as a framework of response to any required control measures in the coming months, such as the organisation of class bubbles, staggered timetables and so on.

The school will keep parents and carers fully informed at all times.
