Children returning back to school.

The quality of education, wellbeing and of course the health and safety of the pupils and staff at Southern Road is always at the forefront of the decisions we make. After very extensive Risk Assessments the following information is for you to understand the key parts of how we believe we can open Southern Road for more pupils and do so as safely as possible.

Many thanks to those of you who completed the survey. It’s clear there are many concerns that we share and through our plans of reopening we hope that we will do our best to overcome these. What I can say is that we will not be bringing in any pupils till at least June 8th and at the current time our Nursery will not be reopening until September. Further and more detailed information will follow next week.

Thank you for your support. 

Any parents requiring a Nursery place for September 2020 please download our application form from our website, fill it in and email it to info@southernroadprimary.com.  If any one has received a Golden Ticket from Newham for a 2 Year old Place please email a copy to info@southernroadprimary.com to reserve your place.

The school will be closed for most children from Monday 23rd March apart from a small number of children in particular those of key workers. Please see attached letter of the final list of key workers that has now released by the government and includes.
