31/8/20 Return to school update
I know everyone is anxious to have information about the return to school on Friday 4th Sept. We have a full range of safety measures planned - staggered arrival / break / lunch times, different entrances, reorganised classrooms etc
We have deliberately left sending out information as late as possible as the DfE guidance has continued to change as the situation has evolved (the last change was on Friday evening at 7:30) and we have also had ongoing work in school that might impact on some of the arrangements. I will be meeting with senior staff on Tuesday morning, following which, detailed arrangements will be emailed to all parents.
3/7/20 Preparing to welcome all children back in September
The government has issued guidance for schools to prepare to welccome all children back to school in September. We will be writing to parents before the end of term with further details. In the meantime, the guidance is available by following this link:

31/3/20 Keeping children safe online whilst they are home learning
New guidance has been added to the Parent Support page to help you keep children safe online while they are home learning. Activities for children are available on their respective website pages.
23/3/20 SCAM ALERT!! - If you are asked to provide bank details in order to receive payments in respect of free school meals, this is a scam. Parents of Larkfield children entitled to free meals should have received an email from us with details of how we will provide for FSM. It does not require any bank details.
23/3/20 SCHOOL IS NOW CLOSED TO ALL CHILDREN EXCEPT THOSE THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN IDENTIFIED AS ELIGIBLE FOR CARE ARRANGEMENTS.
This link will take you to the Government information about coronavirus - further links are available from there.
