Dear Parents/Carers and boys and girls,

I do hope you are enjoying half term. The weather has been great again and here in school, the children have been enjoying lots of outdoor play.

The government has stated that its five key tests have been met. Therefore, we will be going ahead with our plan to re-open for children in Reception classes from Monday 8th June and Year 1 children from Monday 15th June. Adaptations to the building are taking place now and my colleagues are ready to welcome you back: boys and girls we have missed you all so much!

We will finalise the smaller groups or ‘bubbles’ next week. To do that I need your help! I still have a number of parents who have not let us know whether their child will be back on the given date.

Please respond to the question on Parentmail  over the weekend:

My child is in Reception/ Year1

I will be sending my child to school from 8th June/15th June.

I will not be sending my child back to school from 8th/15th June.

In answer to some of the questions I have had this week:

It is back to school for younger children from the above dates-therefore, there is no need to book in and, unless your Year 1 or Reception child is ill, we would expect to see them every day.

Key workers’ Reception and Year 1 children will join bubbles with children their own age every day.

There will be separate bubbles for key workers’ children in the other years and we would ask you to book your days as usual.

Online learning will recommence from Tuesday 2nd June for all years. It will continue until schooling on site is offered for other year groups.

From 8th or 15th June we will signpost learning for Reception and Year 1 children but monitoring of learning and feedback will cease because the staff will be in school teaching every day.

Please complete the questionnaire and we can update information for you next week.

Thanks for your co-operation.

Mr. Gaskill
