Coronavirus- Information for parents (updated 26.06.20)
Dear Parents and Carers,
Firstly, I would like to thank you all for the fantastic support that you have given us over the past couple of months. We really do feel thankful for all of your messages; it has made an incredibly difficult time a lot easier.
As many of you are aware, we have been updated by the Government regarding any developments during the pandemic relevant to schools, at the same time that you are. The senior team and Governors regularly adapt risk assessments when announcements are made, taking into account the impact that these have on our school, and ultimately our children.
Many of you have questions regarding arrangements for the summer holidays and for when the children return in the Autumn Term. Our position is the same as the vast majority of other schools in the country; we are still awaiting further guidance from the Government, until this is received we cannot give our families any exact details.
However, I think it is only fair to inform you that as I write this newsletter we do not plan to open the school over the summer break. Many staff have worked throughout the pandemic without a break and to ensure the health and wellbeing of the staff in the long term, we intend to close as planned on Friday 10th July to all children, including those of key workers. The Government may direct us to open and if this is the case I will inform you, but I feel that parents need as much notice as possible so that alternative arrangements can be made.
The Prime Minister has pledged that all schools will reopen fully after the summer. Without some significant changes to the current guidelines, I am not sure how this will be possible. Again, we are still awaiting further guidance from the Government. As with all of our planning, the aim is to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the children and staff. We will confirm exact details for after the summer as soon as we are able to.
If you have any questions, please contact the school office.
