School Opening Update

Dear Parents/Carers

Further to my communication to you on Sunday, I can confirm that Governors have been in discussion regarding the scheduled extended opening of our school to Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 on the 15th June. In light of the Council statement and the fact that the Government’s five key tests have not been met, school will remain open only to the children of key workers until the 22nd June. Governors intend to reassess the situation on a weekly basis, taking all available information into account. Please be mindful that this date could change again depending on the information at the time.

Just a reminder that the message has not changed. It is safer for everyone if children remain at home at this time. Keyworker children should only be attending school when there is no adult in the house to look after them. Whilst we appreciate the difficulties of working from home with children, it is imperative for children to remain at home to reduce the risks to other children and our staff.

By bringing your child to school when they could be at home increases the risk to others. The R rate is currently at 1.01. It is vital that there is a continued effort to reduce contacts at this time to help to get this virus under control.

I appreciate your patience and thank all those families who are doing everything they can to stay at home and look after everyone.

Kindest regards

Mrs Chambers
