Covid19 Information for parents

Teachers for next year.

Dear Parents / carers,

It has been lovely welcoming many of our children back into school last week and we look forward to seeing some of our year 5 children join us on Wednesday.

Please ensure that you have read the School Reopening Plan before your child returns to school.

We are operating a strict one way system with entry to the school yard being from Orrell Road entrances only and exit only through the front entrance. 

Please check your arrival time and pick up time below. We would ask that parents stick to these times in order to allow social distancing to be in place.


Key Worker children arrival to year 4 classroom 8:45 -8:55       Collection: 3:00

Reception     arrival: 8:45-8:55         Collection 2:45-2:55

Year 1           arrival: 8:55-9:05         Collection 2:55-3:05

Year 6           arrival: 9:05-9:15         Collection 3:05-3:15

Year 5           arrival: 8:45-8:55         Collection 2:45-2:55


Children need to bring a named water bottle. If children are bringing a packed lunch, this needs to be sent to school in a disposable bag with your child's name on. If your child pays for their school dinners, they need to bring the money to school in an envelope with their name on which they will give to their bubble teacher.  

Year 6 children who walk home may bring a mobile phone to school.

Remember that your child's temperature will be taken immediately on arrival in school. 

Please do not bring your child to school if anyone in your family is experiencing symptoms. 


I would like to thank you for helping us to all stay safe.

Join us in celebrating Thank a Teacher Day

Today is national Thank a Teacher Day, and like all critical workers, this year everyone working in schools and colleges deserves a special thank you.


So today we want to say thank you for going above and beyond to ensure children can continue their education through these unprecedented times.

Dear Parents and Carers,

All of the staff at St Philip's CofE Primary School hope that you are all keep well and safe and that your families are well. 

We are all missing the children dreadfully and are looking forward to seeing them back in school as soon as it is safe to do so. It is very cold and empty in the building without them all! We are making plans to welcome mor of the childen back on 1st June. Please see the letters on this page for more information. These will be updated as and when we have more information to share.

We have just started receiving the letters the children have written to us in reply to our letters and we are delighted to read all about what you have been up to over the weeks of lockdown.   As their replies come back to school, we will put these onto the Working From Home page so that the children can see each other's letters. 

Some of you have been concerned about how much school work the children should be doing and whether you are doing it right. Please do not fret too much! The teachers are putting new work onto the website regularly, but we fully understand how difficult it is to persuade them to engage with it. Just do what you can! Hopefully Purple Mash has been helping the teachers to be able to engage with the children in a more focused way. Lots of the children have begun messaging their teachers and are working their way through the activities which are being set for them.

Please call school if there is anything we can do to help your family. If you leave a message on the answer phone, someone will get back to you. If your family has had to cope with illness or death while the children have been at home, please let us know so that we can endeavour to support them as best we can when they return to school. 

The information below may be useful to you during this time. 

Please stay safe and well. 

All of our families are remembered in my prayers and those of the parish.
