School Update Information
Dear Parents and Carers,
Following the Government’s announcement last week, I know that you will have many questions and concerns about Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 children possibly returning to school in June. We have been working on proposals to minimise the risks to your child, parents and staff. In the documents below you will find an outline of the safety measures that we will implement. I hope that these arrangements will help you to make an informed decision about your child’s return to school.
I also hope you will see that we are trying to keep everyone as safe as possible. We all know the importance of social distancing and the need to stay 2 meters apart; we will aim to enforce this with our children but I am sure you are aware how difficult this will be, especially with our younger children. The number of people your child comes into contact with will be controlled by introducing a ‘bubble’ system ie working groups of 7-15 children and your child will be in the same group at all times including break and lunchtimes.
For children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 their return to school would be expected, however, the decision is yours; you have to do what you feel is right for your child. The Government has announced that there will be no recourse if you decide to keep your child at home and we will continue to provide home learning support. Please let me know as soon as possible if your child will be returning to school or not.
If you have any questions or concerns please Dojo your classteacher, email me directly or ring me via the school office on 01772 253851; I am in school from Wednesday to Friday this week.
Many thanks for your continued support – stay safe.
