Dear parents and carers,
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement this evening, a phased reopening of schools, to children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 may be returning from1st June. There is a lot to consider before this happens,including questions around social distancing, staffing and how daily routines will take place to ensure safety for all. The health and safety of children, staff and those who drop off and collect each day, is of the highest importance to us.
The local education authority, teaching unions and the schools Governors will also have to risk assess any plans before children return to the classroom.
Please rest assured that I will keep you all fully informed at every stage.
The Prime Minister also stated that people may return to work from tomorrow, where possible, if they cannot work from home. I would like to make it clear that this does not change the criteria for which school will provide childcare for Key Worker children.
We are still only offering childcare for families where parents are Key Workers and whose jobs are critical to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Thank you for your continued support.
