On Sunday evening, the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, addressed the nation in a pre-recorded statement about the COVID-19 pandemic. In this statement he outlined that IF certain conditions are met during the next three weeks, it may be possible for children in Reception, Year One and Year Six to return to school on Monday, 1st June.
We know that many of you will have questions following this statement about how this return to school will happen, what procedures will be put in place and what this means for older siblings. Over the next few weeks there will be a number of documents released by the Government that will answer these questions and support schools across the country to reopen in a phased and manageable way. As we receive this information, we will be acting upon it and using Parentmail to continue to update all parents about the steps that both you and we, as a school, will need to take. However, the opening of our school is not yet certain. It will only happen if the Government’s five key objectives are met.
In the meantime, please continue to stay at home, stay safe and protect yourselves and our community. We must all continue to be aware of our impact on both passing on and containing the virus.
