Wider Opening for Nursery and Reception


Broadford Primary School Reopening Details


Dear Parents and Carers,

I hope this message finds you well and you have been doing some interesting Homeschooling. Staff at Broadford have been working really hard to get the school ready to welcome back children in Nursery and Reception in a safe way during these unusual times. There are quite a lot of changes to our normal systems which are detailed below.

Nursery will attend part time week commencing the 15th June. (Days and times will be allocated once numbers have been confirmed)

Reception will attend for two days a week during the week commencing 15th June, 9.30am - 3.15pm (Days will be allocated once numbers have been confirmed)

We are waiting for Government guidance regarding other year groups, I will contact you as soon as I hear anything.

For parents of children in Nursery and Reception, there are further details in year group blogs, which will also be published today. Parents and Carers of children in Nursery and Reception are asked to complete the Google survey using the link below. It is really, really important that we know which children are coming back to school so we can work out groupings and organise staffing. If you have completed the form, a member of the teaching team will contact you by phone by the end of the week to tell you which ‘bubble’ your child will be in.

Nursery form

Reception form


Attendance at the moment is optional. Parents will not be fined for non - attendance.
  • Each child will be grouped in a 'bubble' consisting of a maximum 15 children with at least 2 adults
  • Children and adults in a 'bubble' will not mix with children and adults from other 'bubbles'
  • Start of the day- We now have a set of distance markers in our playground for Reception children and outside Nursery for our Nursery children.
  • If your child is in Reception, we are requesting that children and no more than one adult are asked to come into the playground using the Bottom Gate and line up ready for the school day, using the distance markers. Teachers will collect the children and adults are then asked to leave by the same gate. The reverse will happen at the end of the day. Members of SLT will be on hand to make sure the process runs smoothly.
  • If your child is in Nursery, then we are asking that you enter via the Top Gate and line up on the markers outside the Nursery entrance.
  • The school kitchen is offering cold packed lunches for children in Reception. Nursery children will need to bring a packed lunch from home.
  • All children should bring a clean water bottle into school each day
  • Children need to wear clean clothes everyday, uniform is optional
  • We are sorry, we won't be able to have face-to-face conversations with our parents at the moment but we do very much want you to keep in touch so please phone or email
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Best wishes

Jim McLucas
