As there is so much speculation in the press at present I wish to update you on what we know so far with regards to re-opening of school.
No date has been set for re-opening of schools and no guidance has been issued yet on how it will look.
Despite the press speculating 1st June as the date for return this is not confirmed. We await the government’s announcement at the end of the week and will update you as soon as we know. I am in daily contact with the Local Authority and they are liaising with the Department for Education to contribute to government plans for the gradual return.
We have been advised that all children will not return at the same time and the health and safety of children and staff is the priority.
In the mean time Seesaw online learning will continue. Thank you for all the positive feedback. The teachers are working very hard to keep the children motivated but inevitably it could never be the same as being at school each day. It appears the children have been learning many fabulous skills whilst learning at home and parents have been doing an excellent job. Thank you and well done.
As soon as I know any further details I will update you again.
