Here at Ingoldsby we are so looking forward to having all of our pupils back at school.
Supported by our fantastic staff, I am so proud of how much the children have achieved while learning at home. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support on this – we know it has been challenging for everyone to juggle home-schooling with other commitments, and your support is very much appreciated. However, no virtual experience can replace face-to-face teaching and it is really good to be returning to the classroom.
We are all working hard to ensure that our curriculum and timetable is supporting our pupils gain the most out of their time back. Timetables will be added to the curriculum pages of our website for your information.
As has been the case throughout the pandemic, the welfare of pupils and staff is our priority and we will do everything we can to make the school environment as safe as possible. We will continue to follow our existing, stringent measures including staggering arrivals creating dedicated key stage areas, boosting hygiene and following social distancing where we can.

We know how long it's been since we congregated and saw fellow parents, however please wear a mask when entering the school grounds or carpark and maintain distance.
Please do not park in the school car park from Monday.
Should my child wear uniform?
Yes, absolutely. Please make sure your child tucks in their polo shirt and ties up their hair.
Happy to help
I would like to invite parents with uniform that no longer fits, to donate so we can reissue to children and families who for whatever reason can not access the school uniform. This can be put in a plastic bag by the gate.
Please ensure that earrings are taken out on PE days or provide a pot or envelope for your child to take out their own earrings.
If you have a school Chromebook or laptop at home please can you return these on Monday please. Our IT department plans to check all devices to ensure that they are running as they should and can be used at their most effective.
