Last week was the first time in months that all pupils were back on site, with Jewish studies lead Deborah Harris saying they were “excited” to return.

While a full school is a recent development, some children have been allowed to attend throughout the pandemic.

The school’s doors remained open during lockdown for the children of key workers, and on June 1 pupils from reception and Years 1 and 6 were invited to return.

This was the position until last week, when all 250-plus pupils — from nursery to Year 6 — returned to the school’s King Solomon High School campus in Forest Road, Barkingside.
