Dear Parents and Families
I’m sure many of you will have watched the Prime Minister’s address to the nation last night.
You will have heard the Prime Minister indicating that the government believes it may be in a position to implement a phased re-opening of schools for certain year groups from the 1st June. This is part of a conditional plan, which is says will remain under regular review. The year groups identified as being the first to return to school are Reception, Year 1 and Year 6.
I’m sure as parents, you will have many questions regarding this announcement, which will range from exactly which children may come back to school to how are we going to keep them safe; including social distancing measures.
I am unable to give you precise answers to your questions at this time, however I would like to assure you that the safety and wellbeing of our children and the community will remain my priority.
Detailed guidance from the government is due to be published in the coming days. Once I receive this, I will be in a position to determine the exact arrangements for the return for these identified year groups and then others.
Currently and the school will remain open for the children of Key Workers and those identified by the government as vulnerable. A member of the Senior Leadership Team is on site very day for you contact if you have any questions and to support you remotely. I will be in touch again when I have more information for you.
Mrs Y. Quigley Headteacher
