As you know the government are asking primary schools to start planning for a wider opening from the week commencing 1st June.
We are grateful to the parents of reception, year 1 and year 6 children who have been in touch to let us know their intentions at this point.
Government advice states that if necessary settings have the flexibility to focus first on continuing to provide places for priority groups (children of critical workers and vulnerable children) and then to prioritise other groups of children- reception, year 1 and year 6.
Our school capacity will allow children to work in groups of 8-10 in fourteen classrooms (the halls will be used as one- way corridors).
This limits the number of children that the school can safely reintegrate.
In order to support our planning, we now need all parents who are critical workers to confirm that their children require a place in school. It is important that we know which days are required for your children on a weekly basis. We will also need an email from a manager at the place of work to confirm that parents are critical workers and cannot work from home.
The government has provided this information about critical workers:
We apologise for the short notice but we have a very tight time scale to work through in order to respond to the regular updates that we receive and to support future planning.
Please email this information by 9am on Thursday 21st May to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your continued support.
