Welcome to Bishops Down Primary & Nursery School

Dear Parents, Guardians and Children,
Below are some videos I have made and I would appreciate it if parents/guardians could share them with your children who are returning to school on Monday, 1st June. They are also on their class pages.
I have been walking round the site and it is apparent to me that the children will find things very different on their return. I hope the videos below will help them not be too nervous on their first day back. The Early Years team have, I know, uploaded some video onto Tapestry for you.
I look forward to seeing you all – YN, YR, Y1 and Y6 and our Key Worker children. For those of you not returning just yet be rest assured I am thinking of you all too and hopefully we will see each other very soon.

Dear Parents, Guardians, Friends and Stakeholders,
Thank you for visiting our school website. We are busy preparing the school for a return on 1st June for children in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6. We are in the unique position to be able to offer childcare also for children in the other year groups should their parent be a Key Worker.
From Friday, 20th March our school, along with all other schools in the UK, closed our doors to teaching as we know it. Fast forward 11 weeks and we are excited to open again on 1st June.
The safety and well-being of our children and staff is paramount. I have ensured that all the Government Guidelines have been followed for a successful re-opening. My staff have been working extremely hard, not only in lockdown, to deliver the Home Learning, but more recently to get the school ready for 1st June. My thanks to them all.
With kindest regards,
