Dear Parents and Carers,
I know you will now all be aware that it is the Government’s intention to implement a phased reopening of schools from the 1st June. This would begin with Reception, Year 1 and Year 6. Only if infection rates and the Government’s other tests at the time allow it.
Last night much documentation was released giving guidance upon how this can be done with the correct safety measures in place. We will be using the next two weeks to make sure we manage the process of re-opening well and that we have all sensible measures in place so school will be a safe place for your child to return to. In the short term nothing has changed and school will continue to run as it has done in the previous weeks since lockdown.
I fully understand you will have many questions. Many of you will feel nervous about your child returning to school. I understand this completely. What is clear is that school will not look the same as when we closed. There will be significantly reduced classes, staggered openings, closing times, lunches and playtimes. Also from a hygiene point of view our cleaning services will be required to adapt to the safety measures put in place.
I’d like to take this opportunity to again thank you for your support and ask for your continued patience during this difficult time. As more information emerges I will keep you updated.
