If anyone in your household has symptoms of coronavirus, it is very important that they arrange to have a COVID-19 test. These can be arranged online by visiting https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/testing-and-tracing/get-a-test-to-check-if-you-have-coronavirus/ or by telephoning 119.
This page will contain information on our response to the COVID-19 pandemic and provide information relevant to the situation and schools' response. Please see the document on the right for information about how we are working together to help keep everyone safe and healthy in our school.
Comments from parents following on from our partial re-opening in June 2020:
"“Amazing! [my daughter] was so down & felt so low while off school and had loads of stuff going on but her mood has lifted so much since being back at school. She comes home full of smiles telling me about her day! I think the safety measures put in place are 100% spot on can't praise you all enough for doing everything possible to keep the kids & yourselves as safe as possible...the kids have adapted so well" Comment from a parent, June 2020
“I think the return to school has been great. It is amazing the lengths the school has gone to to keep the kids safe and the teachers safe. It's a trying time for not only the kids but parents and teachers at this time, but Primrose Hill have assured me that the school has put in place all the safety measures to keep the children, staff and parents safe, so thank you very much.” Comment from a parent, June 2020
“We are really happy with the way the return to school has been managed, thanks to you all. I think you have done a great job in really difficult conditions. [My child] is happy to be back and that says it all really! No other feedback - just keep on doing what you are doing. Thanks!” Comment from a parent, June 2020

Rules For School - What We Tell Our Pupils

Questions about the wider opening of the school from Tuesday 2nd June
The link to the right (also here) is a document setting out our answers to a a range of questions you will have about the phased and gradual re-opening of our school.
Please be warned; this is a LONG document. We have tried our best to explain everything as clearly and as carefully as we can.
We hope this will help you decide on whether to send your children back or not when their own year group re-opens.
Maybe go and get yourself a tea or a coffee and sit down and read three or four questions; then perhaps go back to this later and read some more. There is a lot to take in.
Useful questions right now are:
Q1 1. Which year groups are returning to school?
Q4: Does my child have to attend?
Q6: How big will the classes be?
This document also answers questions about how classes will work, what children will be taught and what we are doing in school to protect our children and reduce the risk of infection.
Everything contained within the document is very important and we have tried to not miss anything out.
We hope it is useful to you.
Please do get in touch with school if you find the answer to your question is not contained within the document.
