Parents can find documents on this page that give information, as we receive it, and subsequently updated, about the Covid-19 pandemic. School re-opened for all pupils in September 2020, and then again on the 8th March 2021 (after another period of lockdown), after much planning, assessment of risks and the mitigation of those risks. Photos below show how the classrooms have been adapted from September. This information will be uodated as Government guidance changes.
Public Health Dorset have sent up to date information for parents as we approach the end of term 2021. Please see the document at the bottom of the page.
