Dear Parent/ Carer
We all hope you are staying safe and well during this time and that your children are accessing the work set for them on the school website. The staff have managed to contact almost all of you over the last few weeks and have loved speaking to both you and the children.
Following the government’s announcement related to schools beginning to reopen, if they think scientific evidence supports this from the 1st June for certain year groups a great deal of work has already begun. This is including risk assessing, the logistics, practicalities and safety for the return of children, the staff and your families. Currently, we are not in a position to say when school will reopen for children other than those of the key workers or vulnerable who have already been accessing school. We hope it will be soon but have to ensure all people’s safety before we can make that decision.
School will close this Friday 22nd May at 3:00 for the Spring Bank half term holiday as published. This means we are closed to all pupils until Monday 8th June. Staff will not be setting work during half term or making contact calls home.
On Monday 8th June we will reopen just for the children of key workers or who are vulnerable.
If you feel that you fulfil the government criteria for key worker or vulnerable, and would like your child to attend school, please contact the office.
May I take this opportunity to say thank you for all for your kind words and support during this difficult time, it is much appreciated by everyone. We wish all of you celebrating Eid over half term have a lovely time.
Mrs A Knowles
