The pattern of individual school terms and holidays for primary, middle and secondary schools
vary slightly from school to school, since
of the 195 days are used for staff development.
We advise you to check the
school's own website
or contact them direct for confirmation.

We have been open for some of the year groups from the start of June. It has been lovely being back to a sort-of-normal, having children in school, which is as it should be! We have had more than 30 children every day. All the Year 6s are back and many of the Fledglings, Reception and Year 1 children too.Here are some pictures of what the children have been doing in school.Fledglings and Litton have been learning about pirates and mermaids and under-the-sea creatures. They had a pirate dress up day and made a shell shop.Chesil have been getting active and socially distancing when working!Eggardon have been doing archaeology – there are deep holes in our front garden now! - and keeping fit!
