Dear Parents/Carers,

You will have seen the Government announcement on Sunday 10th May that, if conditions allow, there may be a phased reopening of primary schools from June with children in Reception classes and in Years 1 and 6 to be the first to return. As a Trust we want, of course, to see our children return to school – when it is safe to do so.

As a Trust, we will be closely following Government guidance about this possible phased reopening of schools. The safety of both children and staff are paramount to us and we will be working over the next few days on plans to maximise whatever expectations are set out for social distancing in schools and on keeping our school premises as clean and safe as possible for both children and staff. There are still lots of questions to be answered such as the issue of personal protective equipment in schools, however, and we need further Government guidance on this point before finalising plans.

One of the complexities of the situation is that not all our staff are able to return to school yet and we do need to make sure that when the time comes, we have sufficient staff for the number of children that will be in school.

We recognise that parents may be anxious about what schools reopening will mean and the reassurance I would like to give is that we will only reopen our schools for more pupils when we are convinced it is safe to do so and all our arrangements are fully in place.

We would also like to take this opportunity to remind you that, at present, the list of keyworkers remains unchanged. Therefore, even if employers are requesting that parents return to work, provision within schools remains available to solely key workers at this time.

When our plans are finalised and if schools are instructed to partially reopen, your school will make sure that you receive detailed information from us about what this means in practice and you will be given an opportunity to share your thoughts and views.

With very best wishes,
Sir Steve Lancashire
Chief Executive Officer,
REAch2 Academy Trust

Twinkl Learning resources

Hello, we have received this helpful message from Twinkl, a website that provides resources for teachers. Should your child be missing school for any reason, these resources might help you should you need to provide any learning from home.

From Twinkl –


As the Coronavirus spreads, we’re aware that more schools are closing and pupils’ learning is being disrupted. Parents, carers and teachers are looking for ways to ensure the continuity of education during school closures so that no children miss out on valuable learning time.

We’d like your support to get this message out. Please let your wider school and leadership team know about this opportunity so that you can all share it with your school community.

Healthy Tuck Shop Opening at playtime!

Dear Parent/Carer,

We are pleased to announce that the school will be opening a Healthy Tuck Shop after the half-term where we will be offering a range of affordable and healthier snacks for the children to buy at playtime. As always, fruit is available for free for children in EYFS and KS1  at playtime although all children are welcome at the tuck shop. 

Our tuck shop will be opening on Monday 24th February and will be run by the Prefects. All items are 40p each and you will be able to purchase the snacks for the days you would like your child to visit the tuck shop via Parentmail. We will then print a list of children who have purchased a snack each day before playtime and these children will be asked to come and choose a snack from the tuck shop.  

The following snacks will be available for the children to buy: box of raisins, popcorn, Bears fruit snacks, cheese strings, blueberry and vanilla rice cakes, mini cheddars, mini breadsticks, and Alpen summer fruits cereal bars. There will also be a gluten free option for children with allergies. 

The Panther’s Pantry trolley

Tuck shop purchases will be available on Parentmail shortly. Unfortunately children who have not had an item purchased for them via Parentmail will not be able to have a snack from the Tuck shop. 

Warm regards,

Mrs Fish
