Welcome to the website of Giffards Primary School.
We can confirm that we are intending for the school to fully re-open in September. The first day back for the children will be Thursday September 3rd 2020 and they will all need to go to the classes that they were in during 2019/20 academic year.
Please see here for the letter that was sent out confirming arrangements for Years 1 -6 from September.
A separate letter was sent to our new EYFS families, as their transition is slightly different – EYFS arrangements for Sept 2020.
We understand that many of the children may be a little concerned about how the school will look and run from September.
Below are some details that will hopefully allay most of those fears, please do share with your child if you can – please click on the relevant link.
We take our obligations around health and safety and safeguarding of all of our staff, pupils and their families very seriously and we can assure you that everything we do bears this is mind. Here is the risk assessment that we have produced confirming the changes we have made to the school to ensure the safety of everyone.
Please see below for our up to date news.
Parents and teachers at Giffards Primary School want children to be happy and learn lots of new skills. We believe that these two things can be achieved in an environment where children and adults respect each other, regardless of age, gender or position. We want children to be kind, careful and considerate, friendly and polite, helpful, sensible, honest, hard working and respectful of other people’s opinions, beliefs and property. Children at Giffards are happy and remain at the heart of everything we do.
An important element in a child’s education is the link between home and school. Children learn best when home and school work together so that we can achieve the very best for our children. Please ensure that children attend school every day, are punctual and wearing school uniform. Click to see our prospectus and an explanation of the curriculum that we follow.
As part of our commitment to improving education for our pupils and pupils locally we work closely with other schools, even though a standalone Academy, and are part of the Dilkes Primary Academy Teaching Alliance.
