Covid - 19 Update - Return to School -September 2020

We are looking forward to welcoming all the children and families back to school on Wednesday 2nd September. Children in Y1 to Y6 will attend school full time for five days a week. Our new Early Years children will have a staggered start as outlined in your induction pack.

Our risk assessment has been approved by the local authority and the chair of governors. Key information about staggered start times, playtimes and finish times and the safety measures thatwill be in place were sent out to parents in a letter at the end of the summer term.


Start Times                                                     Finish Times

8.50 – Class 3                                                3.00 – Class 3

8.55 – Class 1                                                 3.05 – Class 1 

9.00 – Class 2                                                 3.10 – Class 2

If you have children in different classes, you are able to collect them both at the same time as you collect the oldest child. 

To support with observing social distancing, it is important that you arrive at the allocated start and finish times.

When collecting your child, please wait in the allocated area on the playground for your oldest child. 

Where possible comminicate with the school office via telephone or email. Emails are only checked at set times during the day so if you require a reply that day then telephone the school.

All children are required to wear school uniform.

Please remember to bring in a packed lunch or to order a packed lunch from dolce.

Before returning to school, please speak to your child/children about the importance of washing their hands and social distancing. Wiltshire Council have also published the leaflet below for parents to support you in preparing your child for returning to school and to help answer any questions.

Home Learning


If it becomes necessary for home learning to be implemented then home learning activities will be on the class pages. To ensure our website works most efficiently, there will only be two weeks worth of work on there at a time. We have explored a number of different learning platforms and feel that many offer some animated educational games but the quality of the learning is minimal. We will use the Naitonal Oak academy resources and activities designed by staff as we feel that these resources best support our curriculum and the needs of our children. We will also provide some teaching videos to support with home learning.We have also purchased White Rose Resources to support learning in school, homework and home learning


Broad Town Primary School is a very small rural school on the outskirts of Royal Wotton Bassett. We are an inclusive school and the development of the whole child is central to our school’s Christian ethos. Staff are very skilled, dedicated and have high expectations of themselves and of the children they work with.

It is important for us to make the children’s time at school very special and memorable. We are very proud of our Forest School status which enables children to explore and learn outdoors. It supports the children in developing important life skills such as team work, problem solving and resilience as well as building confidence and self-esteem.

Our website will provide you with lots of information about the school. If you are considering which school is going to be right for your child and would like to visit our school then please make an appointment with the school office.
