Year 1 Harvest Festival Celebrations, by Mrs Horton
St George's Primary School - Welcome
We are proud to welcome you to our school and this web-site. Our aim is that the website is a 'one stop shop' for families.
Across the country all of us have faced challenges to determine how we best respond to the threat of the coronavirus. St George’s is no different.
We are delighted to now be welcoming back all pupils. Every child has bene invited for an induction session with their new class teacher on 16th or 17th of July. All pupils will then return in their new classes every day from 3rd of September.
We are ready to safely welcome all pupils back. We have trialled our safety plan successfully with 93% of pupils from June 2nd. We have a high level of confidence in the safety plan and the science that demonstrates that schools are safe place for chiuldren and staff if we have a robust safety plan.
2. Our detailed safety plan and risk assessment can be read on our managaing coronavirus page. Also contains information about Dragon Club from September. Please note that the safety plan has some blank pages. These are for timetables and other administrative tasks that will be added over the summer.
