Return to School Autumn 2020

  •  RETURN TO SCHOOL SAFELY INDUCTION FORM

    Each student is asked to read the Return to School Safely Induction document and sign it with their Parent/Guardian before return to school.

    We will send, to  each student(years 2,3,4,5 and 6), a google form version of the Induction document. This google form version of the induction document will be sent via google classroom(each student is part of a year group google classroom). We ask that students read the document on google classroom , complete the questions and submit it by clicking submit at the end. This process allows us to collect the completed forms electronically and safely.

    Incoming first years have been sent , in the post, a paper version of the form as they are not yet on google classroom. This will arrive to homes on Monday 31st August. We ask all incoming first years and their parents to read and sign the form and bring it to school with them on Tuesday 1st September.

    A PDF version of the form has been attached here.
