Parent Handbook – Full September Re-Opening

Following the governments’ announcement that all schools must open fully in September, this handbook sets out the plans agreed between the staff and governors of the school, in order to continue to minimise the risk posed by COVID 19.

We can now confirm, that as long as it is still considered safe to do so, we will be opening for all children from Thursday 3rd September. New intake of Reception children will be different and parents have already been informed of the detailed arrangements. In summary, new reception children will be attending:

• Stay Play and Chat sessions starting 7th September
• Half day provision starting 14th September
• Full time provision starting 21st September

The following is a detailed breakdown of the re-opening plan. Please note that due to the continuing developments in the current situation, the plans may alter and we will keep you informed at every point. You may notice some messages are often repeated in different sections, as there is a great deal to take in!

The absolute priority of the staff and governors of Bells Farm Primary School is to minimise risk presented in the current situation. Each decision has been informed by government guidelines, reports from Public Health England (PHE) and the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the guidance from the Department for Education (DfE) and Local Authority (LA).

This guidance will be under continuous review and we will make you aware of any changes or additions.
If you have any further questions after reading through the guidance below, please email and a member of staff will deal with your enquiry at the first available opportunity.

Next week, we will also be sending parents / carers a survey to complete regarding the re-opening in September.
