Sidegate Primary School

Seize Opportunity, Create Success

Opening Times

Opening from September 2021


In light of the Government’s move to Step 4 and the new guidance we have received from the Department of Education, we will be returning to “normality” in September (unless the situation changes over the summer). We would ask that people continue to “exercise their personal responsibility” - this includes maintaining appropriate distancing from others, self-isolating and testing if you have COVID symptoms or have been contacted by Track & Trace.


Our risk assessment has been updated


Arrival at School

We will continue with our “flexible arrival” between 8.45am and 9.00am. The register will close at 9am and lessons will start promptly - please make sure that your child is actually in their classroom, ready to learn by 9am.
