IMPORTANT INFORMATION - school reopening


27th August 2020

Link straight to the handbook here


 Dear Parents and Carers,


 Re: School reopening – September 2020

I am writing with details of the return to school this September.  As you know it is the expectation that all students in the country return to school.  At Barnhill, we are very much looking forward to welcoming all students back.  However, I am sure that you also have concerns regarding the arrangements for all to return.

We are very keen to ensure that the safety of all students and staff is managed as best it can be.  While it is not possible to remove all risk from coronavirus, we will be taking stringent steps to ensure that the school is as safe as can be.  The government has made an information page for parents to access, which you can find here.

Please read this letter and the handbook carefully.  It is very important that all children know what is expected of them.  If you have any questions, please direct them to your child’s head of year or the school email address;  The school opens again to staff on the 2nd September, so there will be limited responses until that time.

I very much look forward to working with all families over the coming year.  While it will prove to be challenging, all staff at Barnhill are very keen to provide a safe environment where the highest standards of learning can take place.

I wish all families well and I hope that you have all enjoyed a restful summer holiday.
