Return to School September 2020

During this time of uncertainty, as we follow Government and Local Authority advice to prepare to safely open the school to all pupils in September, we will be regularly updating this page with information and guidance as and when it becomes available. Please see information here to support you and your child returning to school through the full reopening that the Government is advising.

It is our intention, by following government guidance, to open our school fully from the 3rd September. We have been working hard to assess the safety of our plans, the well being of children and staff,  plus amend and adapt risk assessments and procedures as necessary.

At this stage, we welcome you to look over our plans so we can all work together to keep children, staff and the wider community safe.

What school might look like from September 2020

Strategies for parents for Back to School in September

Novel Entertainment – the company behind the award-winning Horrid Henry TV series – has created a new animated Horrid Henry video aimed especially at children who may be going back to school, and for those who are not yet going back, to gently explain what their return to the classroom may look like. The film is introduced by Henry’s headmistress Miss Oddbod, and features all the regular kids and teachers. This video has been created with the Oxfordshire Virtual School, which covers 200 local schools, and Kindness Wave Oxfordshire.

Sharing Worries

Supporting your child's well being when returning to school

Check in with them regularly and remind them that:

It’s normal to feel scared – nerves actually help us prepare for challenges.

It may take time for them to feel settled, and that’s OK.

They might get things wrong as they get used to a new situation.

They’ve coped with big changes in the past and can do it again.

They can talk to you or someone at school if they’re worried.
