Letter to Parents - update on 15th May 2020
We hope all our families are keeping well and that the long bank holiday weekend brought some rest and relaxation.
We know that many parents will have watched the Prime Minister’s address to the nation on Sunday and will have heard what he said about the prospect of schools potentially reopening on June 1st.
Whilst the governing body is keen to see the school reopen to children in Reception, Year One and Year Six as soon as possible, it is currently too early at this point to be able to pinpoint a precise date for children to return. Therefore, the governors have decided not to reopen the school on June 1st.
It is our view that children should only be allowed to return to classrooms if and when it is safe to do so.
However, the school remains open to the very small number of children whose parents are key workers and who have no other option but to send their children to school.
We are working hard to make our school safe for any future reopening and are starting to complete risk assessments so that we are ready, when appropriate, to safely manage more children in our classrooms.
We have not made any final decisions about timelines or specific procedures as we are waiting for guidance from the Department for Education and the Local Authority and we want to ensure that our plans match the advice that schools are given.
We will update parents regularly.
We plan to send out the next update on Friday May 22nd.
In the meantime, please continue with our home learning activities.
