Bromham pupils given a warm welcome back to school

Bromham Primary
Back to school: Adam, Darcie-Louise, Max, Samah, Ellie and Alex

Pupils at Bromham CofE Primary School were given star treatment when they returned to school today (Monday).

Children returning to the village primary school for the first time since March walked through a welcoming balloon arch as they embarked on the new academic year.

Attendance on the first day of the new term was 98%, an indication of parents’ trust in the precautions the school has put in place over the summer break.

Head teacher, Gurjit Virk, said, “It is fabulous to have the children back; seeing happy and excited children and parents at the gate was a wonderful experience.

“As I walked around the school today, it was brilliant to see our children actively engaged in their learning and generally delighted to be back to business.

“Everything felt normal again. It also reminded me, being back amongst staff and children, what an amazing school I have the privilege to lead.”
