Dear Parents/ Carers,
We hope you are well?
Thank you to all of the children and families who have been engaging with some super home learning this week- we have loved hearing about it and seeing some of the work you have shared on J2E. You are all doing an amazing job! Next week's home learning plans are now available on the year group pages of the school website. Please also keep an eye on the Latest News section of the website as we try to upload any information or useful guidance for parents that we receive.
As you are aware, earlier this week the government published guidance about schools planning to welcome more children back, starting with Reception, Year 1 and Year 6.
The guidance for this to begin is as soon as it is safe, but this is only if certain conditions are met e.g. concerning health and the current “R” value. The government will be reviewing the data and will also be issuing schools with further guidance.
At this time, we are working very hard, with the Local Authority, to plan how we might be able to follow this guidance to welcome back more children, whilst ensuring safety is the top priority. We appreciate you will have lots of questions and concerns. We are working on this as quickly as we can to put the best possible plans in place and to provide you with the information you need- thank you for your continued patience whilst we seek clarity and further information.
During next week we will be sending a letter to the parents of Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 children asking them to inform us if they are likely to take up an offer of a place for their child in school. Whilst we appreciate that parents responses can only be based on the information we are able to provide at this point, it will be a really helpful first step for us with our planning.
Thank you so much for your continued support and understanding; it is very much appreciated.
We hope you enjoy the sunshine over the weekend and the opportunity to spend more time outside now that the lockdown requirements have changed.
Take care and keep safe.
