Phased Re-opening Update 18.6.20
This week we welcomed another group of children back to school whose parents are key workers and also re-opened to our Reception class. It was fantastic to have more children back in school!
As you’ll know from our previous letters, the government have asked us to continue to give priority to spaces available to key workers. We have had quite a high demand for spaces from key workers and need to ensure we have spaces available for those children to attend school.
We are now only able to open one more bubble within the guidance of our Covid19 risk assessment. From next week, we will be re-opening the Year One class.
We are disappointed that we will not be able to open safely to wider year groups this academic year (children in Nursery, Years 2 – 6) and recognise that parents/carers may be disappointed that their child is not able to return to school at this time.
We will continue to provide home-learning for all children up until the end of term. Our staff will also be available to support you and your children through this period. Teachers will continue to respond to emails through the Home Learning email account and will also be contacting families that are not currently in school before the end of term.
Work is already under way to plan for September and the important transition for the majority of children with returning to school. Further information regarding arrangements for September will follow in due course including letting parents/carers and children know who their class teachers will be next year.
We are currently awaiting further guidance from the government on how we can open more widely in September and will work with the Local Authority on making the necessary arrangements. We will provide further information to parents/carers as soon as we are able
