Please read the attached letter which will also be emailed to everyone today.

Please note that it is essential that we hear from every reception parent via email by 1pm on Tuesday 2nd June. Further details in the letter here Opening 8th June final

Many thanks.


Key worker children-essential to book your place please

Current key worker families: As more children are now coming in to school as key workers, it is essential that you book your child in with us. If you do not book them in, we may not be able to have them on that day due to numbers. Please email to let us know you childcare requirements for weeks beginning 1st and 8th June by tomorrow midday at the latest. Thank you.

New key worker families: If you are a key worker and your child is coming into school for the first time since lockdown, it is essential that you book a place for them by emailing If you do not book them in, we may not be able to have them on that day due to numbers. We are asking for you to email your childcare requirements by midday tomorrow for weeks beginning 1st and 8th June. Thank you.

From Monday 1st June, we will be organising the classrooms a bit differently for key worker children in light of the new risk assessment we have done following national and local new guidance. This will include a one way system for dropping off and collecting your child. We will email all key worker parents tomorrow with a detailed plan once we have final numbers of children who will be coming into school. The full Risk Assessment will be added to the school website later today.

Please note, at this stage school is only open to key worker children and vulnerable children. As soon as we know more, we will let other groups/year groups know a start date.

Thank you for your patience.

Design a Book Token Competition!

We have an exciting opportunity to win book tokens for the children of St George’s! To take part, children need to design a National Book Token – the winning entries will be used on National Book Token gift cards and the winners will receive a £10 book token for themselves and for every one of their classmates.

Follow this link for more details and to print a template and an entry form.

Entries must be submitted by Sunday 28th June.

It would be fantastic for one of our children to be able to surprise their classmates with some fabulous book tokens when they return to school!

Happy designing and good luck 😊

The competition is open from Wednesday 6th May and the closing date for entries is Sunday 28th June 2020.

We’ll pick one winner each week until the competition closes (you only need to submit an entry once for it to be considered every week!). The winners will be featured on and our social media channels, and their designs will be printed onto gift cards for each of their classmates when schools reopen.
