It's great to have our students back for the new academic year.
We've now completed the 'phased return' of all students and term is fully up and running. Students are working under the new conditions that have been imposed due to Covid-19.
Safety of students and staff is our priority. We have prepared this short video outlining some of the measures that we've put in place to keep children and staff safe. These include year groups taught in 'bubbles' to reduce contact between groups of students; changes to classroom organisation to reduce movement, remove group work and keep students 'front-facing'; reduction in the school day and the removal of break time to minimise contact between students and increased cleaning and hygiene facilities. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us. We want all of our students to be able to return to school and continue their education while feeling safe and happy. A copy of our risk assessment is available for you to read below.
In the light of new government restrictions imposed on social gatherings of six or more people it is essential that all students make their way home directly once school has finished and do not wait around in the neighbourhood for friends. Students should travel home either alone or in pairs or small groups only. Please support us by reinforcing this message at Home.
It is also important that all students are fully able to access remote learning from home both to support their normal curriculum and to be ready to switch to online learning should we need to lock down again or should any student need to isolate. If your child has any problems accessing the remote learning on Teams then please contact the IT support team on 0207 924 8310 or by email IT_helpdesk@sjbc.wandsworth.sch.uk
Sadly we've had to postpone our annual prize-giving ceremony given the restrictions in place on non-essential gatherings. We are continuing to offer after-hours, socially-distanced, individual family tours to prospective parents who are seeking a school place for September 2021. Full details can be found on our admissions page. Please do encourage friends who have children in year 6 to come along and visit the school.
