Coronavirus


18th May – A letter to parents, detailing Elmwood Infant’s Schools plans to safely reopen to pupils from Monday 1st June, starting with Nursery & Reception pupils as per government guidelines.
If your child currently attends school as you are a key worker, you can continue to send in your child(ren) as you do now.

Parents of pupils in Nursery & Reception can download a re-opening pack which gives full details of how the phased reopening will affect your children. Please note that parents with children in Year 1 and Year 2 will get their own detailed pack closer to the time of the phased reopening for these year groups.
