A primary school in Hemel Hempstead has shared a video showing teachers welcoming back children and the measures they took to ensure the safety of the pupils and staff, as the lockdown restrictions continue to ease.

The Reddings Primary School, in Bennetts End Road, made the video during the first week back at school when children in nursery, reception year one and year six were allowed back.

Hertfordshire County Council has been working hard to support its re-opened schools, including The Reddings Primary School, to facilitate a safe and welcoming return for nursery, reception, year one and year six pupils, after weeks of isolation due to Covid-19.

Headteacher Tracy Prickett said: “We probably now have just over 50 children back at The Reddings which is about 25 per cent of our school population.

"Having that PPE and making sure that everything is clear, that the risk assessments have been clearly written, has enabled my staff to feel happy and confident.

“I have to say it’s been brilliant; the parents are happy the children are happy, everybody is learning, the staff are planning even more. It’s been a really successful week.”
