Above you will find a letter from Mrs Huotari regarding the children returning to school on Wednesday 2nd September.   Other key details will be sent to you via app message.  Please read both documents carefully.


Photos to support children returning to school this July.


We wanted to share with you some photos of what Stella Maris currently looks like internally and externally.

We have successfully welcomed back children in YR, Y1 and Y6 as well as other children in our Keyworker groups. 

From July 13th different year groups will be returning for some time in school.

We know that for many of our children it has been a long time away and some are anxious about returning as school may look different to what it was like before.

The photos will hopefully help to prepare your child for what school will look like when they return. The classroom layout could differ slightly from these photos depending on the number of children in the 'bubble.' If you have any queries or questions about any of the images, please feel free to contact the school through the usual channels by email or phone.



Internal and External photos of school

As of Monday 15th June, the law requires any Public Transport User to wear a face mask whilst travelling.    In accordance with this KCC have determined the following guidance applicable to children provided with transport assistance by the Council.     

Please find a letter providing information about the return to school of pupils in YR, Y1 and Y6. There is also a risk assessment for school re-opening.


Our Risk Assessment will be reviewed on a regular basis and updated in accordance with government guidance.


Please read these documents carefully as there is a lot of information about how the school day will be run and the prevention measures in place to reduce the possible transmission of COVID19. Due to the need for strict routines to be followed, we have written an addendum for our behaviour policy. Please read this and share these expectations with your child so that they can remain in school for the remainder of the term.
