The Secretary of State for Education announced on Wednesday 18th March that all Schools in England would close from Monday 23rd March 2020. The school uploaded work on the school website each week, for all year groups to access; enabling home learning to continue.
When the school was closed, we stayed open for our key worker families and parents of children with EHCPs. We are very grateful to the school community for their support, as well as the integrity and commitment demonstrated by staff during this unprecedented time.
On Sunday 10th May the Prime Minister outlined the government’s roadmap for easing the current measures in place for the partial reopening. For our school this related to Year 6 pupils, and we also included Year 5 pupils. There was a smooth transition back to school for those Year 6 pupils attending from Tuesday 2nd June, for the additional Year 5 pupils and other 'vulnerable' groups.
On Tuesday 23rd June the government announced that schools would fully reopen in September 2020. Further risk assessments were drawn up by the Senior Leadership Team (SLT), which are published below and regularly updated as required. The robust risk assessment process adheres to national guidance, first published on Thursday 2nd July, which has been updated many times since. We will keep our parents updated on further developments and other key messages via Parentmail and the school website. Please read ParentMail communication and regualrly check this page; referring any queries to to the school.
We wish all our families all the very best and hope everyone remains healthy.
