Sir Francis Drake

September 2020 School reopening



I hope that you are starting to get excited about returning to school next week!

Over the holiday we have been working on our risk assessment and ensuring that we are ready to welcome everyone back into school.

Our risk assessment can be viewed below along with the Parents' guide for returning to school.  I hope that everything is clear an that it answers any questions that you may have about the return.

The Parents' guide was also emailed to all parents on 26th August.

If you have any questions please get in touch via email:  and we will do our best to help you.

I look forward to meeting you and welcoming your children back into school from Thursday 3rd September

Head Teacher


November 2020 School remains open

School remains open even though the country is in lockdown.  We are following all the government guidelines and ensuring that children's safety is our top priority.  Our risk assessment is regularly updated to take into account new guidelines and developments.
