13 may update
We know you’ve seen in the news that schools may reopen on 1 June to reception, year 1 and year 6 pupils if the government thinks it is safe then. The advice has been from the beginning that special schools are open for vulnerable pupils and the children of critical workers.
We are waiting for further guidance and clarification from the government right now, which will hopefully help us create an action plan for our phased reopening. We will share this with you as soon as possible so you know what the school’s reopening will look like in practice.
It’s a very unsettling time for us all, but rest assured that we’re going to be doing everything we can to make sure we’re ready to receive more students if it’s safe for our school to do so in the coming weeks.
Your child’s class teacher will be contacting you to discuss, that following the government announcement we are hoping to be able to increase the number of students we have in school and If this was a possibility how would you feel about your child coming back before September.
However, we are also not going to be pressuring anyone to send their children to school, since you know your child(ren) and personal situation best. We will keep you updated with all our preparations for making sure the school is as safe as possible, so you can make an informed decision.
In the meantime, the school is still open only for vulnerable pupils and the children of critical workers.
We would like to thank you for your continuous support in helping your child learn from home. We will need to keep going with this for a while yet, so please do continue to do what you can and stay in touch with us about how your child is doing.
If you have any questions, please contact me.
