This page contains key information on the opening of Bishop’s Primary School in September.

It is the government’s plan that all pupils, in all year groups, will return to school full-time from September. This means that school attendance will once again be compulsory for all pupils.

Here you can find the recent information released by government, ‘Returning to primary school: what parents need to know’.

At Bishop’s Primary we have produced a bespoke risk assessment for reopening, taking into account the latest government guidance and applying it to our specific setting. Information for parents in the letters shared at the end of term can be found below. Among other things, they give details of drop off arrangements for each bubble and changes to timings of the school day including an earlier end of the day on Wednesdays to allow for deep cleaning of buildings. we have also taken the decision to postpone the start of extra curricular activities including breakfast clubs.

In September we will stagger opening dates to allow year groups that have not been in school during lock down to be in first. All campuses will welcome children back in the following order:

Monday 31st Aug – School closed due to bank holiday.

Tuesday 1st Sept – Training day (school closed to pupils).

Wednesday 2nd Sept – Years 3, 4, and 5 return to school.

Thursday 3rd Sept – Reception, year 1, 2 and 6 return to school.

Monday 7th Sept – Nursery pupils to return during this week. Please see campus letters for further details.

Pupils should return any reading books including library books as soon as possible and arrive to school dressed in full uniform.

We look forward to welcoming you all back in September after a restful summer.
