The government has taken the decision to close schools across England from Friday 20th March.
As you will be aware, the Government has published an intention for primary schools to start opening for certain year groups from 1st June, pending the continued stabilisation of the national situation. This will initially apply to pupils in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 only.
Thank you to those of you who have discussed return to school with staff on the telephone this week. Your transparency in letting us know your intentions for your children allows us to plan carefully our provision. If you have indicated you will be sending your child back to school, you will receive separate instructions on how this will be implemented.
We have safely kept the school open for the parents of critical workers and vulnerable pupils since the 20th March. The leadership team have looked carefully at the current systems in place and devised a reopening plan that takes on board the key messages from current Government guidance. Following a comprehensive risk assessment of adapted school structures as well as our duty of care to all staff and to pupils remains, and will continue to remain, the overall priority.
Home learning will continue for pupils not yet returning to learning yet.
Throughout term time and within school hours there will be accessibility to the parent room to change reading books should you wish to do so.
