Return to School January 2022 

Everyone will return to school on Tuesday 4 January at 8:50 am.


Dear Parent/Carer

We are looking forward to seeing all the children at 8:45 on Tuesday 4 January. Please remember to send the children in with their Chromebook and charger. They will need them for their learning.

 To keep everyone safe, adults should wear a mask when they enter the school site -unless exempt.

Schools are still required to implement proportionate control measures as part of an on-going risk assessment. This means that there will not be a complete return to pre-COVID ways of working. An emphasis will continue to be placed on:

  • Keeping good hygiene for everyone during the school day
  • Regular cleaning, including high-touch surfaces
  • Well ventilated rooms by keeping doors and windows open, at least for part of the day with blasts of fresh air
  • Following public health rules on testing, self-isolation and managing confirmed cases

The Parent Guide to a Return to School sets out in more detail the changes to the way we will work at Gateway in September and explains how we will continue to keep pupils, parents and staff safe. Click here to view the document.

Schools continue to receive guidance from the government. Should government guidance change, and schools are instructed to change the current ways of working, we will contact parents via text and post information on the school website.

Thank you for your support.


 Yours sincerely,


 L. Lochner
