A ‘bubble’ will be a whole class of 30 or can be a year group of 60.
We are continuing with staggered start and finish times. It is anticipated that this will remain in place throughout Term 1 at least.
For parents with children in more than one year group we will be introducing an optional 8.30am drop off and 3.30 collection – please contact the school office if you wish to use this service.
Breakfast Club (7.30-8.30am) and After School Club (3.30-6pm) will reopen to all children. However, we do ask that this is booked in advance for the whole term using our online system. Children will continue to remain at tables for their activities within their bubble
during these clubs.

An Engaging Curriculum
Within carefully selected topics, our children make meaningful links between Art, Music, History, Geography, Design Technology, English, Mathematics and Science.
They are helped to understand how these subjects bring a deeper understanding to their lives, other people and the world.
Children are given the opportunity to attend numerous educational visits linked to their topic and are regularly visited by a variety of interesting professional who give talks or provide exciting workshops.

A LOVE of reading
Our broad and balanced curriculum ensures that teaching of reading is tailored to the children, with a clear understanding of the skills needed to be a successful reader and how these develop during each term and year. Teachers are clear of the barriers to learning to read and are forensic in identifying these in individual pupils and groups and they use a range of strategies to overcome these, including careful deployment of skilled adults.
