The wider reopening of schools-Update

On the 22nd June we are reopening for Y6 children along with our key worker families.

We are currently contacting parents of Y1, Reception and Nursery children as we make plans to welcome back these year groups. More information will follow regarding this. 

In order to ensure that we maintain social distancing with increased numbers of children on site we have reviewed the timings of the day. Each group of children will have a specific time to arrive and leave school in order to minimise contact with other groups. Siblings/families are able to arrive together and they will be taken to their year group bubbles by staff. Please check the timings that apply to your child/children.

8 am -8.15 am – Key worker children who have a pre-arranged early drop off at school

Other information 

To reduce infection children must not bring personal belongings into school and all children will receive a school dinner/school packed lunch.

For those families who do not receive Free School Meals can I remind you that the weekly cost of a school lunch is £7.50. The cost of this has been greatly subsidised by the school.

In order to reduce the risk of infection we have been advised that we are unable to accept cash in school.

Last year we introduced SIMSPAY (previously known as AGORA) as our online payment system.If you have previously used SIMSPAY please use this method to pay for your child’s school dinners .

If you need help logging on to SIMSPAY please email Miss Chute on or ring school on 0151 260 8957 and we will support you with this process.

LivPaC Resources for parents of SEND Pupils

Liverpool Parent and Carers Forum-LivPaC

Liverpool Parent and Carers Forum (LivPaC) is a group of parents and carers of children and young people with special education needs and/or disabilities (SEND) who work with education, health and care services.

“Alone, we can do so little.  BUT together we CAN do so MUCH”

Through their participation and co-production, they work to create a culture across all services which places need of families at the centre of the decision making.

Below is a link to LivPac which holds a wealth of resources which may provide useful in supporting your child and your family. 

As Parenting Co-ordinator for Liverpool City Council, I am proud that we can offer parents across the city a platform to share their stories whilst offering resources from across a wide spectrum of organisations to support parents on their journey.

It has been a privilege to pull these SEND blogs and information together and I would like to thank the parents, LivPac and our partners for their support and assistance in piecing this jigsaw of information together. Chris Cavanagh

Y6 – return to school update

Following the advice from Steve Reddy, Director of Children’s Services and his team our school will be open to Y6 pupils on 22nd June 2020. (See below)

Children should arrive at school at 9.15 am in their uniform. They will not be able to bring in any personal items from home and all children will receive a school hot dinner or a school packed lunch. For those families who are not in receipt of free school meals can I remind you that school dinners cost £7.50 per week.   The children can be collected from school at 3.30pm so that we can ensure social distancing.

We look forward to seeing the children back in school on Monday.


As of 11th June, almost all schools are open to children of key workers and vulnerable
children. The return of Year 6 children was initially planned for 15th June but this was
paused until 22nd June.
Having consulted with Cheshire and Merseyside Directors of Public Health 1, they now feel able to support schools to progress their plans for a phased return of Year 6, if deemed safe to do so on 22nd June.
 This will be based upon the individual context of each school and will be dependent upon the size and layout of the building, circulation around the site and availability of staff. Places will be allocated until a school reaches its capacity as determined by its individual risk assessment. Once again, the stage at which
schools are able to open for these pupils will vary from school to school.

Y6 return to school -DELAYED

Following recent information about the virus rate and advice from public health, school’s have been advised by Steve Reddy the director of Children’s Services Liverpool, NOT TO OPEN for Y6 on the 15th June 2020 as planned.

We will continue to work with the local authority, school staff and governors to ensure that we meet the needs of as many children as possible. More information will follow for our Y6 children and families and we will continue to risk assess for a wider school reopening as we move forward throughout the summer term.
