Welcome to Syresham Church of England Primary School

A happy, caring and secure learning environment


The Government’s Covid-19 Guidance to nurseries and schools for Children and Young People in England from 1st September 2021 is:

  • Children and young people are at a very low risk and rate of severe illness from current variants – the benefits of them being in an education setting continues to significantly outweigh the COVID-19 health risks
  • children and young people will no longer be in bubbles or be required to self-isolate if they’ve been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19
  • children and young people should stay at home and get a PCR test if they have any of the main COVID-19 symptoms
  • support to help them catch up or boost their wellbeing is available

>>Covid-19 School Risk Assessment v3 6Dec2021

>>Operational Plan (Minimising Risks) updated 6Dec2021

We will provide on-line learning for any pupils who have to isolate at home for COVID reasons using our home-learning platform SeeSaw.  This will include English and Mathematics activities as well as individual lesson plans.  1:1 catchup sessions with classteachers, phonics sessions with a teaching assistant and telephone support for parents may also be an option.   Laptops  are available to those children who are struggling to access the home learning.  Children in school can take time-out to chat to their classmates at home via a video link, helping them to keep in contact with each other.

We respectfully ask that anyone wishing to visit school ring and make an appointment first and that parents do not come into the building, but also make an appointment to see the class teachers or Mrs Clough.  Visitors will all be asked to wear a mask whilst in the building and to leave contact details for the Government’s track and trace system.

To try to keep our children and staff safe while they are in school we are following the Government guidelines and have a comprehensive risk assessment in place which has been used to devise a ‘an Operational Plan’.  These are both available for parents to read, please just ask at the school office for a copy.  Please click the link below to help make a judgement on what to do if your child is unwell :

At Syresham Primary School we all work closely together, to share the care and education of your children at this very special time of their lives.

We are a small primary school, where everyone involved aims to provide the children and all who visit and work here with a happy, caring, secure and stimulating Christian community in which the children will grow and develop, and where they are respected and valued. Our school is designed to give all the children equal access to all learning opportunities. The whole school environment provides these opportunities, so that learning can occur at any time or place, as well as in the classroom. As  a result the children find satisfaction in learning because it is real and relevant to them.

We encourage our children to become independent and to strive to achieve their full potential. This quality leads to greater self-motivation and self-discipline. The children are provided with many opportunities to make good relationships with other children and adults, both in the school and in the community.
