The school will re-open to Y1-6 pupils on Thursday 3rd September 2020. Please see our risk assessment and letter dated 21st July for details by clicking on the Current Risk Assessment and School Closure Letters and Forms buttons below.
In line with current government guidance, we are operating staggered start and finish times and other safety measures.
We will still not be in a position to offer school tours/visits in the autumn term and instead have new virtual tours of our two school sites which you will find under the Our School tab of the website.
The school will fully open for the start of the autumn term this September, in line with government guidance.
Our children’s safety is paramount to us and so we have spent a long time thinking about how we can bring everyone back. The government guidance is absolutely clear about the public health advice that schools must follow to minimise the risks of coronavirus (COVID-19) transmission. It clearly details the set of actions that schools must take in terms of prevention and response to infection and all members of our school community and their families will be required to adhere to these. This includes pupil, parent and staff engagement with the NHS Test and Trace process in every case where they are relevant.
Arrangements for the beginning and end of the day have had to be well thought about so that we do not have too many people on site at any one time. As per government guidance, we will be staggering both drop off and pick up times:
The start and end times will be:

We are extremely proud of all our students and our excellent teachers
At Hackbridge Primary School the safety and welfare of our children is of the utmost importance.
Because of the day-to-day contact with children, our staff are well placed to observe the outward signs of abuse. All adults working in the school must protect children from harm and abuse, including Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE), Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and Radicalisation/Extremism (Prevent Duty), Children Missing Education (CME) and be aware that any pupil may be at risk of harm or abuse.
We have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of our pupils under the Education Act 2011 and Children Act 1989 through identifying any child welfare concerns and taking action to address them in partnership with families and other agencies where appropriate.
All staff at Hackbridge Primary School have enhanced DBS status and are first aid trained. All new staff are recruited under our "Safer Recruitment" policy and procedures.
