FREE Breakfast & Lunch

All children at Early Birds Nursery eat breakfast and lunch, for free.

Reopening Plans

Alongside many other Multi-Academy Trusts, our aim is to open our schools when the government considers it safe to do so. Following the government’s announcement, we have worked on a detailed plan to provide the most effective and safest means for children and staff to return to school, with the intention of achieving the proposed 1st June return.

Our plan has been drawn up in close consultation with all Head Teachers across the Trust, through the use of professional, independent risk assessments and incorporating the comprehensive guidance provided by the DfE.

The government’s plan to reopen schools has invited controversy and opposition from some quarters. Parents are understandably concerned and conflicted. We are not pressuring anyone to send their children to school, since you know your children and personal situation best, but by sharing the key aspects of our plan we hope to give all parents sufficient information to allow them to make an informed decision whether or not to send their child back to school.

Please note that there may be minor changes to this plan that are more specific to Richmond Academy. Any changes and updates will be sent to parents by Weduc and email.
