Wider-Opening of Schools

Schools are currently making plans for the wider opening of schools from 1st June 2020. Currently children of key workers and vulnerable pupils are able to attend school by arrangement with the school office. The government has prioritised pupils from Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 to be the next group to attend school if parents choose for them to do so. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/closure-of-educational-settings-information-for-parents-and-carers/reopening-schools-and-other-educational-settings-from-1-june

Parents should be assured that our key priority is to ensure the safety of our pupils. Our leadership team is currently undertaking a detailed risk assessment and putting in place a range of protective measures before we will open our doors to more pupils. We are planning for changes that are as supportive as possible for children and families, whilst being manageable for the school.

Now that the announcement to open has been made by the government, we will be using the first week of June to ensure we are completely ready for more pupils to attend, therefore start dates will be staggered later that week or week beginning the 8th June 2020. We will only invite more pupils back once the protective measures outlined by the government have been put in place. Implementing the measures and accommodating key workers’ children and vulnerable pupils, may mean that we do not have capacity to take all pupils should parents wish them to attend in the Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 groups.

For the week commencing 1st June, children of key workers and vulnerable pupils will continue to access provision as previously arranged with the school office.

We will post our risk assessments, amended policies and detailed arrangements on this area of the website. It will be very difficult to pre-empt every situation and we will continually review and update our arrangements.
