September 2020 Opening

Essex Primary School: September 2020 Opening

On this page you will find all the necessary information in relation to the School’s 2020 Opening and any updates regarding COVID-19.

As stated in the Government Guidelines, it is mandatory for all children to return school. We have made the best reasonable endeavours to keep the School as safe and as secure as possible for both the children and staff. The health and safety of both the children and staff are constantly being monitored. Therefore, the Risk Assessment is reviewed regularly, to keep everyone as safe as possible. Please see the table below for the Risk Assessment.

Information will always be made available to all parents/carers via PING and the School Website regarding any new details that may occur.

This page will also give you an opportunity to see how well the children and staff are working while they are learning in their Bubbles. Please scroll down this page and click on the ‘Learning in Bubbles‘ link to see all the wonderful learning taking place.

It has been a rather challenging time for us all but our wonderfully, resilient community has come together to stay strong and resolute. I would like to encourage us all to continue to work collaboratively this year, so the children of Essex Primary can flourish and fulfil their undoubted potential.

Thank you for your support and understanding.
