Letter to parents (11.05.)

Monday 11th May 2020

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

Many families will have heard the Prime Minister’s address on Sunday 11th May in which he stated that:

 

At the earliest by June 1 – after half term – we believe we may be in a position to begin the phased reopening of shops and to get primary pupils back into schools, in stages, beginning with reception, Year 1 and Year 6. Our ambition is that secondary pupils facing exams next year will get at least some time with their teachers before the holidays.

 

Currently, we will continue to offer places for childcare, vulnerable children and those of key workers, but we understand that many other parents will want to know more about when their children will return to school. Schools across England will also have heard this news for the first time on Sunday and over the course of the next week or two, will be reviewing the detailed guidance government has said it will provide.

Once we have read the guidance and made sense of how this will work in a special school. We will then take any action required to open the school to the year groups identified in a safe way. When we are in a position to do so, we will provide information on our website, Facebook and in newsletters so that parents will know exactly when the school will be able to once again offer a place for your children.

In the meantime, we would appreciated if parents could avoid contacting the school directly as we are not able to answer any questions at this time.

Cherie White
Headteacher
