Going back to school

We want every pupil in West Sussex to feel confident and ready to return to or start school in September.

Here you will find lots of useful information and answers to some questions you may have so children, parents and carers and family members are school-ready.


If you’re a schoolchild and feeling a bit nervous, don’t worry – most schoolchildren won’t have been at school for a long time too because of coronavirus. Remember your friends will all be feeling the same as you, and your teachers will be there on your first day back to give you all the support you need.

Here is a message from some young people who went back to school last term on what it was like:


Kind regards
