The safety of our children and all the staff is our highest priority. We have followed government guidance, putting in place many safety measures as per our detailed risk assessments to ensure that the school is safe for some children to return.
The health and safety of our Giffards community will always be our priority and to this end we accepted more key worker and vulnerable children from Wednesday 3rd June and then Year 1 children from Monday 8th June and from Monday 15th June for Year 6 children. Year 5 are invited back from 29th June. If you are in one of the groups of families we are accepting and require a place for your child but have not yet let us know please contact us as a matter of urgency.
Update 01.04.20 due to Government revision of advice.
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.
