School Reopening Arrangements


Gray's Farm Primary Academy will re-open for children in EYFS, Year 1 and 6 from Monday 8th June with a phased return to learning in place.

We will continue to provide arrangements for children of key workers, or those classed as vulnerable, as part of the ongoing response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Following our recent communication we have had to alter our Wednesday collection times to allow for staggered collection times. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Every Wednesday, the school will be closing half day for a deep clean. This is to ensure it is ready for the next group. For this reason, children will need to be collected at the following staggered times:

Nursery - 11.45am
Reception - 11.55am
Year 1 - 12.05pm
Year 6 - 12.15pm

Full information on timings and other arrangements will be detailed to parents that have opted to send their children in via email.
