• It's back to school!

    September is back to school time

    From the beginning of the autumn term, the DfE will expect all pupils, in all year groups, to return to school full-time. A very small number of children and young people, on the advice of their paediatrician or consultant, will need to continue to shield from coronavirus at home.  If this is the case for your child then please ensure that you let your child’s school or college know as they will need to work with you to support their education at home
