Coronavirus: Update

Hello Everyone,

The government has now given schools more detail about the planned reopening of schools across England. As promised, I can now share more information with you about this.

From 1st June 2020, the government has asked children in nursery, reception, year one and year six to return to school, alongside the priority groups currently in our childcare. We have started to plan how we can make sure that everyone in school stays safe.

We will maintain the following key priorities for keeping everyone safe:

In addition, the government advice is to reduce contact between people as much as possible to reduce the transmission risk. In school we have been asked to do this by ensuring children and staff only mix in a small, consistent group and that we keep that small group away from other people and groups.

In order to be able to do this, our plan is as follows:

The government has advised that you do not use public transport on the way to or from school see their advice here.

The government have stated their ambition to bring all primary year groups back to school before the summer holidays, for a month if feasible, though they are keeping this under review. As soon as we have any further information on this we will let you know.

Here is a link to the government advice in full.

If you have any worries or concerns about your child returning to school, please email the school office and one of the leadership team will get back to you as soon as possible.

Take care everyone,
