Catherine Junior School

Together, we can do it!

Dear Parents/Carers,

School opens for all children on 1st September 2020. We are very much looking forward to welcoming the children back after such a long time away.

At CJS we are committed to making sure that every child feels safe, secure and happy when they are at school. We recognise that children will have had very different experiences during Lockdown so this year we will be focussing on talking, building relationships and establishing new routines to ensure that they are all safe, secure and happy.

I would like to take this opportunity to reassure you all that every step has been taken to ensure that your child is safe in school. It is vital that you as parents and carers make sure that you follow the new routines and timings exactly as outlined below if we are to keep everyone safe.

I appreciate your ongoing support during this difficult time and I look forward to seeing the children on the 1st September.
