Parent Update 22.5.2020

Dear parents and carers,


Thank you to all the EYFS, Year 1 and Year 6 parents who quickly completed the form regarding a potential return to school after 1st June. After assessing the responses around 50% of pupils will be returning, initially on a part time basis. We have written separately to these parents to explain return arrangements. 


There has been no new news about the remaining year groups although there is a view that a decision will be taken around the end of June so that they may have the opportunity to return to school before the end of the summer term.


Please can we stress that due to the need to considerably change the way that we work and allocate staff and rooms we will not  be able to  casually accept new members to the arranged groups. We will keep this position under review.


Once again we would like to praise the very positive efforts and work of pupils on Tapestry and Google Classroom. These have proved to be a very effective way of maintaining two way communication between home and school. We contact those who we have concerns about or who have requested specific help. We continue to ask that if you have any queries or concerns regarding learning or other issues to please contact us directly. This can be done via Classroom or by email or telephoning the school office. 


If you are a key or critical worker and have changed circumstances please do contact the school office re childcare possibilities in school.


Have a great half term- please note that timetables for the week beginning 1st June will be sent out on 31st May. We look forward to greeting more pupils back in school as soon as we can.
