Wider opening for Years 1 and 6

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 Year 1 and Year 6 in a safe way during these unusual times. There are quite a lot of changes to our normal systems which are detailed below.

Year 1 will attend part time on a Monday and Tuesday - starting from 8th June, 9am - 3pm

Year 6 will attend part time on a Thursday and Friday - starting from 11th June, 9am - 3pm

We will be opening to Reception and Nursery Children the following week, I will send further details of this shortly.

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 years 1 and 6, there are further details in year group blogs, linked below. Parents and Carers of children in Years 1 and 6 are then asked to complete the Google survey which is also on the blog. 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 to tell you which ‘bubble’ your child will be in.

Year 1

Year 6

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. 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
  • The school kitchen is offering cold packed lunches which will be provided free for children in receipt of Free School Meals (this includes EYFS and Year 1 through the Universal Free School Meals scheme) . If you pay for lunches this can be booked and paid for through sQuid as normal
  • 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
