Stroud School are very excited to re-open to all pupils this Autumn Term 2020 under the leadership of new headmistress Mrs Smith. The school has fully reopened in accordance with Government guidance and to that end there has been an enormous amount of planning and preparation behind the scenes over the summer. This protocol is subject to change, should the guidance change, and the planning remains fluid and dynamic to allow the school to be agile and adjust to the ongoing situation as it develops.

Stroud reopened to all pupils at the end of the summer term 2020 following guidance which, at the time, allowed for children to return to school in bubbles of 15. During this time the remote learning programme continued for all children irrespective of whether they had returned to school or not. Remote learning is still in place if the school needs to close again.

The school believes that it is in the children’s best interest to start the new academic year the way it intends to go on, with normal teacher led classes in bubbles. Despite restrictions on pupil movement between classrooms, its September plan signifies an important step towards a school day that will feel much more normal for their children.

The school remains committed to Health and Safety and has implemented enhanced measures to ensure the health and safety of all pupils, staff, parents and essential visitors. The school will continue to assess the risks associated with COVID-19 and put in place proportionate control measures.
