School Opening

Dear Parents/Carers


Just to keep you updated. The Governors met yesterday (01.06.20.) to review the possibility of extending the opening of our school from the 8th June. Following some lengthy, discussions and after taking account of the current scientific advice and the situation regarding the numbers of current deaths still in the North West, it was decided that we would delay our re-opening until 15 June. We are hoping that this delay will give us a little more time to see what impact the ease of the lockdown has had and the scientific advice is that any delay will reduce the risk of infection further.

Please understand that this decision has not been taken lightly. The health, safety and well being of everyone in our care is our absolute priority. Whilst we are confident that our plans reduce the risks of infection, we are not confident that at this point in time that an extended opening of our school is in the best interests of our children, staff and families on the 8th June.

Our risk assessment has been devised in line with Local Authority recommendations and remains under constant review. Governors will meet again next week and consider the local area situation, guidance recommended in scientific documentation, Government and Local Authority recommendations.

We will continue to keep you informed as to the decision we make in the interests of our school community moving forward.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Kindest regards

Mrs Chambers and the Governors of Willaston CE Primary School
