Headteacher Letter - 1st June 2020

Monday 1st June 2020

Dear Parents/Carers,

The Government has now confirmed that schools can begin to reopen, and we are really looking forward to seeing our Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 children back at over the next fortnight.

We are going to reopen school gradually as follows;

  • June 2nd – key worker children from years 2, 3, 4 and 5 will return to school
  • June 3rd – nursery children will return to school
  • June 8th – Reception pupils will return to school
  • June 10th – Year 1 pupils will return to school
  • June 15th – Year 6 pupils will return to school.

If your child is returning to school the specific details for each group are included in school closure updates section of the website. There are strict arrangements to ensure everyone stays safe and these are based on the numbers of children we know are going to attend. If you have not already advised us that you will be sending your child to school, unfortunately we will not be able to accommodate them immediately. If you do now want to send your child to school, please contact your child’s class teacher via e-mail or from the 1st June you may call the school office. Your child’s Year Group Lead will then contact you to discuss the expectations and safety arrangements and agree a return to school date.

We will do our very best to make sure that all children are supported and enjoy returning to learning at school. Please do let us know if your child might need some extra help when they come back. All of our teachers and school staff have worked incredibly hard to put all of the measures needed in place to make our school safe, we really appreciate your patience and understanding whilst we made our plans. If you need any further information, please let me know, I look forward to seeing some of you at a social distance very soon.

Best wishes,

Rebecca Eaton
