Phased reopening of St. Hugh's

After a very challenging period of time during which our doors have been closed to most of our children, St Hugh’s School will be reopening gradually to allow pupils some time with their teachers in school and, perhaps more importantly, with their friends before the summer break.

We have successfully run a comprehensive and wide-ranging online programme, supported by regular contact with the children's form teachers since we were asked to close on 20 March. We have had a very positive experience teaching the children remotely and they have risen to the challenge spectacularly. Since 23 March, we have remained open to support the children of our Key Worker parents. On 1 June we welcomed back the children in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 and gradually the silence in school has been replaced by laughter.

We are delighted that from 22 June, years 2,3 and 4 will be back in school. From 29 June, years 5,7 and 8 will return which means that we will, once again, be a community. We intend to reopen entirely in September, although clearly this is within whichever guidelines might be in place at that time.  We are confident that the site will allow us to do so, as will the enthusiasm of our staff and pupils.

Life in school has never been so different, but the experience we have shared means that we will appreciate each other all the more. For now, we look forward to being together and to saying our farewells properly to those who are moving on to their next schools.
