Tours for September 2022 Prospective Parents

Dear prospective parents, we are delighted to be able to support you over the coming months as you make important decision about your child’s future schooling.

As a result of the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have specific systems of controls in place to protect our children, staff and school community and therefore all school tours are subject to change depending on current COVID-19 circumstances in our community.

We are aiming to run our school tours and open mornings in the usual way. We know how important this time is for you and we are keen to show prospective parents around our school and for you to meet key staff in person. We have therefore decided that we will operate school tours with the following measures in place:

  • Tours will take place in small groups of no more than 6 adults (including the Headteacher)
  • Children are welcome, we believe it is important that they get that first sight of their possible setting however we ask that they are strictly supervised to prevent them mixing with children in our setting.
  • All visitors will be required to hand sanitise on entering and exiting the building.

For anyone who is unable to or would rather not visit our school in person we will be able to provide an opportunity for you to talk to a member of staff about our school and our website will give you a good flavour of what we are about.
