Alpha Plus schools were delighted to welcome back over 800 children in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 today. Our schools made extensive preparations to ensure pupils’ return to school would be a safe and welcoming experience for all: judging by the smiles and laughter, the mission was accomplished. Pupils were given the option to join their physical school after half term, or stay at home and continue with the school’s online learning programme. While some families opted to continue with remote schooling, a large number of children returned to school today. It has been heart-warming to see so many happy reunions today.
