CORONA VIRUS - BOOKING A TEST - Wednesday 17th June 2020
If you need to book a test for anyone in your household who displays COVID 19 symptoms then this is the link you will need to follow.
If anybody in your household has been contacted by the test and trace system then school must be informed as soon as possible. The 'bubble' they are in will self-isolate until results from the person contacted are back as a precaution.
Please click here to find a document which provides more information from the NHS website on testing.
If a child/staff member was sent home with COVID 19 symptoms or from a 'bubble' where a child/staff member had COVID 19 symptoms then this information will be provided. Everyone will go into self-isolation until the results are confirmed as a precautionary measure.

UPDATE ON SCHOOL REOPENING - Friday 22nd May 2020
Dear parents and carers,
Please click here to find a letter from the Mayor of Doncaster, Ros Jones.
This morning, school was asked to join all of the other educational settings to unite together in a 'Doncaster approach' whereby we all feel that it is not safe to open our schools on the 1st June unless we hear more information based on a number of unanswered questions from the Government which are stated in the letter.
As you aware, we are on half term during the week beginning 1st June and have not planned to reopen until the 8th June for Reception, Year 1, Year 6 and key worker/vulnerable children.
The situation is everchanging and developing. We will keep you as updated as we possibly can and thank you for your understanding and patience during this uncertain time.
Dear parents and carers,
As you know we had a two week half term holiday planned from Monday 25th May until Friday 5th June. As a school, we have thought carefully about the best way to prepare school for the reopening (in line with Government guidance) and to continue providing provision for key worker and vulnerable children as well as providing the opportunity for our hardworking staff to have a well earnt break.
We have therefore decided that we will close on Bank Holiday Monday (25th May) and we will remain open for the rest of this first week for key worker and vulnerable children only. The school will then be closed fully for the second week (1st to the 5th of June). Therefore, we will reopen the school for children in Reception, Year 1, Year 6 and key worker/vulnerable children on Monday 8th June.
This will give parents and carers more time to consider their choice on whether they would like their child/ren to return to school and more time for Government guidance to confirm information on reopening.
If you are a key worker and you need provision during the school closure week then please follow this link below for contacts to other schools in the area.
SCHOOL REOPENING - Friday 15th May 2020
Dear parents and carers,
Please click here to view a letter which informs you on the school's response to the latest Government guidance. At the moment, we have planned amendments and changes from what we know. This may change as further guidance is released and we will be in touch with more information nearer the time.
Thank you for your parent questionnaire responses. Please continue to send these in as we value your feedback and use this to help us plan in school.
PARENT VIEWS - Wednesday 13th May 2020
As you are aware, the Government made an announcement on Sunday evening about the possible phased return to school on 1st June for Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 with a plan for all year groups to return for 4 weeks of education before the Summer holidays.
At the moment, this is all we know as a school and we are receiving daily updates from the DFE on how we can ensure social distancing is kept whilst the children are at school. This is in the very early stages so please be assured that once we know anything, we will contact you with further information as we begin to plan.
In the meantime I would appreciate if you could complete this questionnaire and send it to our email: email@example.com
We truly value your views and hope that these will help us plan a return to school which everyone feels part of, comfortable and happy with.
Many thanks for your support and patience during these uncertain times. We are want our children and staff to be safe and this is absolutely paramount to any decisions we will make as a school.

If a place is required for your child(ren) at short notice for a key worker then please contact school on our email below.
