You will have heard that the government has asked schools to open their doors from 1st June to children in Reception class, Year 1 and Year 6 as well as remaining open for children of key workers and some other designated families. It has been made clear to schools that they must ensure all children of key workers are prioritised, followed by Reception and Year 1 and if resources within school are available, the offer should be extended to Year 6.
I have been working closely with the governors and school staff to plan this and I wanted to inform you as to how we are going to approach this, whilst maintaining the highest standards of hygiene and social distancing. Fortunately, we are a school with large classrooms and extensive grounds and we will be using these creatively over the next few weeks.
To find out whether your child will have the option of attending school from June 1st, I would be grateful if you would read this information:
Although we are looking forward to welcoming more children into school, if you choose not to send your child to school because of concerns around Covid-19, your child’s attendance record will not be affected.
