We will be admitting and phasing in the new children from Monday 7th September. The children will be part of a large bubble and there will be no expectation for the children to socially distance.
All protective measures are explained in our Risk Assessment.
Parents/guardians will not be able to come into the school building and all meetings will be held online or outside.
We have made a short video to explain to the children what Nursery will be like
If there is a local lockdown or we have to close the bubble due to positive cases in the school or staff absence, then we will keep families informed and resume our home learning for the weeks we have to close.
