Latest update regarding school closure
Date: 11th May 2020 @ 12:48pm
I’m sure after the Prime minister’s statement last night, there are lots of questions you have. We have lots of questions that need clarification too! At the moment, for us in school, there is no change to the guidance. We are continuing to provide care for those parents whose work is critical to the COVID-19 response and only those who cannot be safely cared for at home. The message is still that it is safer to stay at home.
We have not, as yet, received any information to support us with this new plan to possibly start the phased reopening of school to some year groups. We are awaiting further clarification from the DFE shortly. We will need clear guidance to plan how it is possible to achieve social distancing in schools and keep our children, teachers and families safe; how we might start to phase groups of children returning and what this might look like. Please be assured there is no way we will reopen until we are 100% prepared.
As always we will keep you informed, but for now, please try not to worry. Our plan for now is to continue to provide activities for learning at home, keep in contact with you, our families, and continue to support each other in these very difficult and uncertain times.
