PLANNING FOR FULL RE-OPENING IN SEPTEMBER 2020
We are busy making plans to welcome all children back to school in September. A thorough risk assessment has been carried out (please see below) and we will be putting in place a range of measures to reduce the transmission of Coronavirus. The measures include:
Number 1 to 4 must be in place in all schools, all the time.
Number 5 must be properly considered and schools must put in place measures that suit their particular circumstances.
Number 6 applies in specific circumstances.
IN RESPONSE TO ANY INFECTION, WE WILL ALSO...
7. Engage with the NHS Test and Trace process
8. Manage confirmed cases of coronavirus (COVID 19) amongst the school community
9. Contain any outbreak by following local health protection team advice
Numbers 7 to 9 must be followed in every case where they are relevant.

It's been a long time since many children last came to school so for some, it might be a worrying time. Try to talk about school positively with your child. Staff are really looking forward to welcoming more children back to school and there will be lots of familiar faces around to help settle the children back in.
As a country, we all need to do what we can to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus. That is why the government has given clear guidance on self-isolation, household isolation and social distancing. The government now say that the scientific evidence says that it is safe to begin a gradual re-opening of schools from June 1st. We have carried out a risk assessment in our school and we have implemented a range of measures to reduce the risk of Covid-19 to children, families and staff. Some of the ways school will be organised differently include:
Due to limited space and staffing, we will initially be opening to the following groups:
1) Children of critical workers and vulnerable pupils
2) Nursery children
3) Reception children
Please do not bring your child into school unless you have already spoken to a member of the office staff to book your child a school place. We must prepare the correct staffing levels, equipment and class sizes before we can accept any children into school.
Open to the children of key workers and vulnerable children.
Open to nursery school.
Open to reception age children.
Please contact school if you would like to take up a school place. Wherever possible, we will arrange a suitable start date for your child.
