IVER HEATH SCHOOLS TO RE-OPEN ON 8TH MARCH
The Junior School as well as the Infant School in Iver Heath have been open throughout the lockdown for Nursery children and the children of key workers, but from Monday 8th March they will be open to all children again. Staff are busy with preparations so that all the appropriate Covid-19 safety precautions are in place. School start, break and leaving times will be staggered to ensure the safety of parents and children as they enter their whole year group or class "bubbles". We are told that staff are looking forward to welcoming children back to school and, no doubt, pupils will be eager to return to face-to-face learning and letting of some steam in the playground at last.
