Dear Parents and Carers,

The asbestos removal work was completed this weekend. Our safety measures will be reviewed and this will coincide with expected government announcements on changes to social distancing and guidance on the safe return to school for all in September. The decisions we then make will be based upon trying to keep each other and all children in our school safe.

Following the recent government announcement, we are planning to open to all children in September, if we can do so safely within the guidelines provided. Once we have more details from the government, and held our safety review, we will contact you with more information. I can confirm that we will be having a staff training day (INSET) on Tuesday 1st September, so the school will open to children on Wednesday 2nd September.

If social distancing is reduced to 1 metre, and the government confirm whether children can be added to existing ‘bubbles’, we will send out another survey, to confirm numbers for the last two weeks. This will of course depend on new guidance and safety on our school site.

We would also like to give Year 6 the opportunity of a final ‘get together’, so that we can say goodbye and wish them well as they prepare for secondary school. This would be between 10:00am – 12:00pm, on the final morning of term 6 on Friday 17th July. If you would like your Year 6 child to attend on the 17th, please let Mrs Waller know via class dojo by Friday 10th July.

We wish that we were able to offer places to everyone as we really do miss you all and we are looking forward to being able to welcome everyone back in September. We thank you for your patience and understanding and we hope that you all continue to stay safe and well.

Yours sincerely

M. Wilson
