In line with current government guidance, we are operating staggered start and finish times and other safety measures.

Welcome to Hackbridge Primary School

Returning to school in September 2020

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.


Year 1 to 6 pupils return on Thursday 3rd September 2020.

Reception pupils will begin on Monday 14th September 2020 following the procedures set out in their starting school letters and booklets, which can also be found here.

In order to make our environment safe, certain protective measures have had to be put in place and we know you will support us with following these. This includes the following staggered start and finish times applicable to all from the start of the autumn 2020 term (including Reception pupils when they start full-time on Friday 18th September):


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 staggered start and end of each day will be done alphabetically by surname in order that families can arrive together, drop or collect and leave site quickly.
  • If children in your family have different surnames which put them in different arrival/collection bands, then they should both arrive/be collected at the time set by your youngest child's surname.

The start and end times will be:

Hackbridge Corner site

A to G surnames 8.45am - 3.10pm (Reception to Year 2) 8.45am-3.15pm (Year 3 to 6)

H to O surnames 8.55am - 3.20pm (Reception to Year 2) 8.55am-3.25pm (Year 3 to 6)

P to Z surnames  9.05am - 3.30pm (Reception to Year 2) 9.05am-3.35pm (Year 3 to 6)

Nursery Class: Caterpillars drop from 8.40am-8.45am, collect from 11.40am-11.45am

Nursery Class: Tadpoles drop from 12.15pm-12.20pm, collect from 3.15pm-3.20pm


London Road site

A to G surnames  8.50am-3.15pm (Reception to Year 2) 

H to O surnames 9.00am-3.25pm (Reception to Year 2)

P to Z surnames  9.10am-3.35pm (Reception to Year 2)

Nursery Class: Honeybees at 9.15am - 3.15pm


For both sites:

  • At drop off times, it is vital that you drop off your child and leave the driveway/pavement area swiftly to avoid congestion which compromises social distancing for our whole school community.
  • On both sites, Nursery and Reception children will be welcomed and dismissed from their classroom doors. School staff will guide parents/carers where they can and cannot go.
  • Year 1 and Year 2 children will enter via the Infant gate on both sites (parents/carers do not come through this gate, as usual) and will be dismissed either from their classroom door or from the nearest door to the playground, which we will guide you to in September.
  • Years 3 - 6 will enter via the Junior gate and will be dismissed in the Junior playground, which will be supported by members of staff due to the staggered times. Parents will be guided as to where to stand and wait.
