Youngsters at a Moorlands village school who have headed back to school for the first time since the beginning of lockdown have had a slight change of uniform.
Brightly coloured rainbow ties have been handed to all the pupils who have returned to St Edwards Academy in Cheddleton.
As the Government is slowly easing lockdown restrictions, primary and first schools across the nation are inviting youngsters in Reception, Year One, and Year Six to once again attend school, after many weeks of home-schooling.
Staff at the Cheddleton school went all out to try and make going back to school fun for it’s pupils by playing happy music on the youngster’s arrivals; while the Parent, Teachers and Friends Association of St Edward’s have purchased lovely rainbow ties for the pupils.
A spokesman at the Hollow Lane school said: “The children and staff have been coping extremely well with the new rules and routines that we have put into place.
“We have introduced a new one way system in school. There is one for arrivals and departures with parents and one around the school for the children to follow.
“To make school an inviting place and to alleviate everyone’s worries, we had music playing – such as ‘Happy’ by ‘Pharell Williams’ and ‘Is this the Way to Amarillo’ by ‘Toni Christie’ – upon arrival.
“Each child who is attending school has been given a new school ‘rainbow’ tie. These have been bought by the PTFA and all children will receive one as they return to school and we are back together as one.
“Again the aim of this is to cheer us all up and spread the message of hope during this dark time.”
