‘Where the children come first’

Sapling Class

Welcome to Sapling Class

The children in our care will each have had unique experiences of and responses to the events of 2020. This has been a year of significant world events, disrupting and changing the ways of life of people across the globe.

Our recovery curriculum will support the children in our school community to re-connect with each other and re-engage with school life. It has been devised for a whole school to work together using a single text to support them as they return to school.


We will be using ‘Here We Are’ by Oliver Jeffers. It builds a personalised sequence of work providing a powerful vehicle for children to reflect on and make sense of the world we are all living in. The words and pictures work together to help children to understand their place in the world and to move forward together in a positive and constructive way.

Staff have worked extremely hard to fulfil as much of the Department for Education guidance as possible, including minimising contact and maintaining the most hygienic environment for the school community. They have removed as much of the sources of possible contamination and spread as they can and this will be reviewed regularly. Strict protocols will be in place for those returning to school for the safety of everyone. The classrooms will be very different to how the children remember them. We would be very grateful if you could prepare them for these changes when they return to school.
