Dear Parents / Carers,
Re-opening of schools in September
First of all, I hope that this newsletter finds you and your families all safe and well. Can I say a huge thank you to you all for the support you have given your child and our school over the last few months. It has been a difficult time for all of us but working together and staying positive have been very much appreciated and are helping us all get through this.
After many months of uncertainty we are now moving back towards the much welcomed full re-opening of our school. My team and I continue to work through the DFE guidance which was released last week creating our plans for re-opening. We are keen to return as much of school life to ‘normal’ as possible in September but will need to continue to have in place some modifications to the school site and our school’s routines in order to comply with the government information.
The plans that we are putting in place are based on the current guidance at this time and may well need to be reviewed during the summer holidays. This is because final sign off for the back-to-school plan will not be given by the government until mid-August, based on an assessment of the state of the epidemic. Therefore I may need to ‘tweak’ our plans for re-opening to reflect any guidance the government subsequently issue.
