Welcome to St. Michael's Church of England Primary School, Bamford

  Hello everyone,

Yesterday I sent an email to all parents in school about reopening Years 2, 3, 4 and 5 for children on a two weekly rota split by surname. This means that from Monday 29th June children from every child has the opportunity to experience what school is like now that we have to be a little more careful in order to keep ourselves safe and can spend time again in their own classroom with their own teacher.

The email also contained important information for every year group about arrangements for the last week of term when we will split the week: Reception and Year 1 in on Mon/Tues for early surnames, Thurs/Fri for later surnames, and Year 6 all in on Mon/Tues for a final catch up.

We have been awarded funding for a new central heating system that we are hoping can be fitted over the summer break, so we will close completely during that time.

Take care,

Mrs Barratt
