Following the government announcement on Sunday 10th May I wanted to provide clarification regarding school attendance.
School continues to be open for children of essential key workers only; parents whose work is critical to the COVID-19 response.
Many parents working in these sectors may be able to ensure their child is kept at home. Please make every effort to do so in order to continue to reduce the spread of the virus and keep all of our children safe.
Please, therefore, follow these key principles:
If you are asked to return to work by your management this DOES NOT MEAN an automatic return to school for your child. The Key Worker criteria still applies. Please phone school and ask to speak to me prior to sending your child into school.
If you are a key worker and it is essential that you continue to work over the May half term then child care only will be provided by school (not the Bank Holiday on Monday 25th May) if you inform us in advance. Again, if there is an opportunity to re-arrange work to enable children to remain at home please do so.
With regard to the partial opening of some year groups in June we will wait until further measures/clarification is announced and only open with measures in place to safeguard children, staff and parents. We will keep you fully informed as information becomes available and decisions are made.
Can I take this opportunity to thank you all for your co-operation and understanding during this very challenging time. I can assure you that all decisions made are in the interest of children’s, parents’ and staff safety and wellbeing. Regards Mrs Nunns, Head Teacher
