Starting or returning to school in September 2020

We all know that this September is going to be quite different.  Normally, all of the children would have had a chance to spend a day with their new teacher, in their new classroom and our new Reception children would have spent several sessions getting to know their new teacher, classroom and school.

This page will hold a range of resources - videos, letters, photos and information that will hopefully help both families and children feel more at home and ready for September.  If you can think of anything else that we could add to make the start of the year easier, please email me at ht.sch202@educ.somerset.gov.uk .
