We hope that all pupils are enjoying being back in school, despite the number of changes that are now in place in school. All pupils have settled well and I know staff members are happy to be back with the children as well.
As part of an in-depth planning process that took place prior to reopening fully in September, we have carried out comprehensive risk assessments with Reach2 Trust and in line with Government guidance. These risk assessments and the procedures related to them will be reviewed regularly in line with any new guidance.
The information provided below is incorporated into our risk assessment, we have outlined below the key changes which parents and carers may find useful. These are unprecedented times and they call for very special measures. The guidelines that we have put in place will ensure pupils can safely return to school, and begin to rebuild those direct relationships with their teachers which is so important.Please contact the school on 01279 215745 if you have any queries or concerns regarding these.
I would like to thank you for your continued support throughout this unusual and challenging public health crisis. Although these changes will make the school feel a little different, I hope that you agree that they make the very best of a challenging situation in the current circumstances, and enable all children to access a full curriculum on their return. When we receive further guidance or information then we will share this with you.
I will of course write to you again, if the plans change as a result of any additional government/ local guidance or should there be a change in circumstances.
All plans will be reviewed by October half term, and parents and carers will be updated routinely should there be changes that affect our pupils and their families.
