Dear Prospective new parents in September 2020,

Here is a copy of the email I sent on Monday 6th July 2020

Dear Parents/Carers of children who start at Sutton Bonington in September,

I hope you are all safe and well.   All of the information is available here on the school webpage.  If you are struggling to access/download any of the documentation, please send the school office an email at office@suttonbonington.notts.sch.uk as soon as possible.  We apologise that it will not be possible to meet face to face in school at the current moment due to government restrictions on gatherings so some of my staff are working to produce a recorded video presentation aimed at parents which will hopefully answer any queries you have.  It is hoped that this will be available on the school website (in the same location above) by the end of the week. 

The first day for the children is Thursday 3rd September and Monday 1st September and Tuesday 2nd September are INSET days.  Your child will be attending half days for the first 4 days – i.e. From Thursday 3rd September until Tuesday 8th September and one of the attached forms enables you to choose which sessions suit you.
