We are following the government guidelines on reopening of schools very closely and have a number of measures in place to ensure that the school is as safe as possible for children, parents and staff.
For the return to school, children are expected to wear full school uniform (all items labelled), including a jumper or cardigan, as windows in classrooms will be open to allow for extra ventilation. Coats should be brought daily along with a named water bottle (which will be brought come for washing each day), lunchbox (if necessary) and P.E. kit (from Monday 7th September).
In order to minimise the contact of personal belongings on pegs etc., we are unable to accommodate large bags or rucksacks within classrooms. All bags must be of a reasonable size and be able to be washed down or wiped, or be disposable.
Children do not need to bring any pencil cases or other resources/books of their own as these will all be provided in school and will remain here where they can be safely sanitised on a daily basis.
Face coverings are not required within school. Therefore, if your child uses one on their journey here they will need to hand it to you on arrival so that you can take it away with you and manage it safely.
Due to increased high alert level COVID restrictions applicable from today (14.10.20) in Nottinghamshire, we will not be in a position to allow pupils to go home from school with anyone outside of their family or agreed support bubble.

Apologies for any inconvenience this causes.
The Lord-Lieutenant of Nottinghamshire, Sir John Peace, is the Queen's representative in our county.
Sir John is leading an initiative in Nottinghamshire to thank every child and young person in our county, for doing their bit in the fight against the coronavirus.
Sir John wants children to understand that their efforts are valued and are critical to helping the country to stay safe.
The initiative, supported by a range of local services as well as the county council, will mean that each child and young person will get a personal certificate achievement.
Watch Sir John's message, including thank yous from doctors, teachers, paramedics, police officers, fire fighters and NHS volunteers below.
Your child's certificate will be put on their Dojo portfolio. If you do not access Dojo, then you can either sign up, or the certificate will be posted to you
