Dear Parents and Carers,

We are sure, after the Prime Ministers statement on Sunday evening, you have lots of questions. We too have lots of questions that need clarification.

At the moment, for us in school there is no change to the guidance. We will continue to provide care for those parents whose work is critical to the COVID 19 response and for vulnerable pupils. The message remains that it is still safer to stay at home.

We have not received any information to support us with this new plan to start the phased re-opening of some year groups. We expect we will receive further information from the DfE shortly.

To reassure you, we will require clear guidance to plan how it is possible to social distance in schools and keep our children, teachers and families safe; how we might start to phase groups of children returning and what this might look like. Please be assured – we will not re-open until we are fully prepared. While all of us will have many questions, nothing will change immediately; we now have some time now to think carefully about our response.

As always, we will keep you informed but for now please try not to worry. Our plan for now is to continue to provide activities for learning at home, keep contact with you, our families, and continue to support each other in these very difficult and uncertain times.

Best wishes

Sally Dakin and Karen Gregg
