Update about September


As you may know, the government has stated that all children will be back in school in September.

At the end of last week, schools were issued with guidance about how we can do this as safely as possible.

We have been working hard to put plans and risk assessments in place so that we can tell you what this will look like at Belfield before the summer holidays in a week’s time.

As soon as these plans are finalised, we will, of course, let you know, but for those of you whose children have been in school over the last few weeks, most of the safety routines in place that you’ll already be aware of, will continue.

Please keep checking your emails as this is how we will be communicating with you (if you do not have an email address, we will post this information to you).

You should all now have received an email (or letter) with your child’s report attached – this also informs you of your child’s new class and teacher.

When you return in September, we will continue to aim to reduce the number of parents and children coming onto site, by having slightly different start and finish times. The table below tells you what time your child can be dropped at their classroom. If you have more than one child at school, you can bring them at the same time.

At this present time, due to COVID 19 and not being able to let children from different classes mix, we will not be able to start Breakfast Club in September. If you are a working parent and this is going to be problematic, please let us know before we break up for the summer holidays.

If you have any questions, please call school or email us at office@belfield.rochdale.sch.uk.

We would like to thank-you for your ongoing support – we have a wonderful community and are looking forward to welcoming you back in the Autumn term.

Stay safe and keep following public health guidance,

Mrs Farrell
