The government has stated that all children will return to school on Monday 8th March 2021. We have sent a letter to all parents and carers with plans for our return. This letter is also attached below - Letter to parents about the reopening of school on Monday 8th March 2021.

At Greenbank we will be continuing with our plans and risk assessments that have been in place since the full reopening of school in September 2020. 

School will reopen on Monday 8th March at 8:30am. Parents and children are able to arrive between 8:30 - 9:00am each day. The longer start for the arrival at school will enable parents to social distance in the playground. The times for the end of the day are as follows Monday to Thursday 2:30-3:00pm and Fridays 1:30-2:00pm. Again this will help with social distancing in the playground. Entrance and exit points for each class are listed in the table below:

Children will be dropped off and picked up in their usual places:


Year Group

Leadership and Year Group staff will be available in the playground at drop off and pick up times to help support families and answer any questions.

We would like to thank you all for your continued support. We have a wonderful community and we look forward to welcoming the children back to school on Monday 8th March.


Check if you or your child has coronavirus symptoms

If you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), get a test as soon as possible. Stay at home until you get the result.


Main symptoms

The main symptoms of coronavirus are:

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

Most people with coronavirus have at least 1 of these symptoms.


What to do if you have symptoms

If you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus:

  1. Get a test to check if you have coronavirus as soon as possible.
  2. Stay at home and do not have visitors until you get your test result – only leave your home to have a test.

Anyone you live with, and anyone in your support bubble, must also stay at home until you get your result.
