Coronavirus Update

Dear parents,

I am sure that many of you will have seen the Prime Minister’s address to the nation regarding next steps in managing the Covid 19 pandemic in Britain. You will have heard the Prime Minister indicating that the government believes it may be in a position to implement a phased re-opening of schools from 1st June, starting with pupils in Year six, Reception and Year one. This is part of the government’s conditional plan, which it says will remain under regular review. 

Clearly, we would all like to see our children back in school as soon as it is safe to do so. However, our first priority is the safety of everyone in our school and community. As we have only just seen the announcement at this stage we are not in a position to answer any questions that you, or our staff will have.  We expect this will be forthcoming in the next few days, and we hope this will provide greater clarity about how things will be managed in terms of maintaining social distancing and keeping children, families and staff safe.  We will be working hard on these plans to ensure we are as prepared as we can be and can keep the children safe. We will provide further information in days and weeks once we are able to do so.

If the national guidance, once known, cannot be safely applied then this may ultimately mean we are not in a position to expand numbers in the way the government has indicated on 1st June- we may need a more graduated response.  Any plan to increase the number of children  attending our school has to be practical, manageable, and above all safe. At this time there is no change to the guidance. We will continue to provide care for those children with key workers as parents and some of our vulnerable pupils.  We will try to keep you informed but for now please try not to be concerned. Our plan at the moment is to continue to provide activities for learning at home, keep in contact with our families and to continue to support one another in these uncertain times.

Yours sincerely,

Gerri Howard
