Plans for Expanding Pupil Numbers from 8 June

Welcoming Children Back to School

Following the Government's most recent announcements on schools, we look forward to welcoming more of our children and their families back to school over the next few weeks.  

Please check all letters and documents carefully for all updates and for plans relating to your child.

If there is anything at all you are unsure of, please contact the school office, or you can reach Miss Holmes or Mrs Curtis directly on the email addresses provided.

Take care, keep safe, and stay positive!

 

It is important that school remains a safe place for children and Government advice is that the fewer children making the journey to school, and the fewer children in educational settings, the lower the risk that the virus can spread and infect vulnerable individuals in wider society.

Therefore, we are continuing to provide care for a limited number of children - children who are vulnerable and children whose parents are critical to the Covid-19 response and cannot be safely cared for at home.

Government guidance on the children who are eligible to access school can be found by following the link below:

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-maintaining-educational-provision/guidance-for-schools-colleges-and-local-authorities-on-maintaining-educational-provision

Please be aware that the principles below should be followed:

  1. If it is at all possible for children to be at home, then they should be.
  2. If a child needs specialist support, is vulnerable or has a parent who is a critical worker, then educational provision will be available for them.
  3. Parents should not rely for childcare upon those who are advised to be in the stringent social distancing category such as grandparents, friends, or family members with underlying conditions.
  4. Parents should also do everything they can to ensure children are not mixing socially in a way which can continue to spread the virus. They should observe the same social distancing principles as adults.
  5. Residential special schools, boarding schools and special settings continue to care for children wherever possible
