Dear Parents, Carers and Pupils,
It’s been a long time since we closed our gates to the majority of pupils on March 20th. Whilst school has remained open for vulnerable and key worker children throughout this time we have more recently opened for pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 6. Following the recent government announcement that it would like schools to re-open for all pupils from September, we have been working on the arrangements to allow all of Burnhope Primary’s pupils to return safely. We have followed the government’s guidance very closely and feel we are now able to share the arrangements below to help you understand what school will be like in September. Therefore, unless advised otherwise by the government, DfE or Durham Local Authority, from Wednesday 2nd September we will be fully open to all year groups.
We are absolutely delighted that as we head into the new academic year we will able to open our doors again and welcome back children in all year groups. To help support the children transitioning into school or moving classes we have created these pages on our website to let you know how we will be organising our school so that we can welcome everyone back safely.
