COVID-19 & the re-opening of school

Dear Parents/Carers,

I'm sure after the Prime Minster's statement last night, there are lots of questions you have. We have lots of questions that need clarification too.

At the moment, for us in school, there is no change to the guidance. We will provide care for those parents whose work is critical to the COVID-19 response and only those that cannot be safely cared for at home. The message is still that it is safer to stay at home.

We have not received any information to support us with this new plan to start the phased reopening of some year groups. We expect we will receive further information from the DFE shortly, hopefully with some clarification.

We will need clear guidance to plan how it is possible to social distance in schools and keep our children, teachers and families safe; how we might start to phase groups of children returning and what this looks like. Please be assured there is no way we will reopen until we are 100% prepared.

As always, we will keep you informed but for now, please try not to worry. Our plan, for now, is to continue to provide activities for learning at home, keep contact with you, our families, and continue to support each other in these very difficult and uncertain times.

Many thanks,

Sharon Turley

Acting Head Teacher
