Coronavirus Information & Updates

UPDATED 7.00am, TUESDAY 26th MAY 2020


Following the Government annnouncement and recent DFE guidance, we have shared our TKAT plans, via a letter sent through 'MarvellousMe', regarding if your child can return to school. A copy of this letter can be found on the right hand column.  

As it stands at the moment we can welcome back children, when the governement say it is safe to do so, but not before 8th June 2020, in the following order:

1. Children who have critical woker parents (see government list of critical workers)

2. Children with an Education & Health Care Plan (EHCP)

3. Children who are deemed vulnerable with a social worker

4. Children in our EYFS class

5. Children in our Year 1 class

Can I still urge caution around what you tell your children and make no promises as guidance is changing freqently. Naturally we want to be back together, however, I must insist the safety of staff, pupils, parent and the local Portfield community comes first.

I will continue to update you as soon as I know more details. If you have any questions or concerns please email me at:
