We are very proud of the education that our children get and the opportunities that every learner has access to in their time here at Edmund Waller.
We really want to share this with as many new families as possible and we have been receiving inquiries about how people can visit the school to see it for themselves.
Due to the times we currently live in, we cannot offer actual tours of our wonderful school. However, we are working on creating a virtual tour, which will give you a flavour of what we have on offer here.
In the meantime, why not check out our incredible ‘Virtual Summer Concert’ to get a feel for the ambition and drive we have for all of our children to participate and succeed.
We are looking forward to welcoming all our families back to school for the first time since the government closed schools to help fight the spread of Covid-19.
To ensure that we can open the school as safely as possible, we are
following all of the Department for Education and Public Health
of the challenges for all of us is how to get nearly 500 children in
and out of the school site, whilst minimising the risk of crossover and
reducing the chances of groups of children and adults gathering. To
achieve this, we are initially going to operate staggered opening and
finishing times, using multiple access points (details of these are
available on the website and have been emailed to all parents/carers).
We understand that this will present a logistical challenge,
particularly for those of you with children in different year groups.
these unprecedented times we ask, in the first instance, that you try
the new system to see how it works in practice. Gates will be staffed by
Senior Leadership Team, who will be continually assessing and are on
hand to troubleshoot. If after trying the arrangements, you find that
you are struggling in any way then please telephone the office and we
will do everything we can to help. We would like to remind you that
measures are in place to mitigate the risk of the spread of Covid-19 for
all members of the school community. Without these (and other) measures
we could not fully open the school which alongside protecting all our
health, is our paramount concern.
We are committed to making the experience as user friendly as possible. We will review the arrangements after the first two weeks of school and update all parents and carers about any amendments or changes that are to be made.
We are really looking forward to welcoming back all our families next week. Please take the time to read over the letter below to ensure you are familiar with each year group’s start time and entrance and exit, as these differ depending on year group.
It is really important, for the health and safety of our staff, learners and the continued opening of the school that we adhere to the organisation as detailed below. Thanks in advance for your support with this.
The details of start days and start times for year groups 1- 6 are available by following the link below.
