Coronavirus Letter to Parents

               2nd June 2020

Dear Parents, Carers and Children,

I hope you have all had a good weekend and half term break and were able to take the opportunities of some of the relaxations in lockdown, although still continuing to follow the guidance to ensure we all stay safe.

As you  know, all of our schools continue to work on reducing risks to be able to extend our offer to more children and will be able to give you more information on this by Friday at the latest.   I know that this is short notice but we have to take everything into account including what is happening both nationally and locally.  Unfortunately, at this time we are still awaiting information regarding Covid 19 that we need to make these decisions but are working very hard to get this information as we believe it is extremely important.

Now we have had our half term there is more home learning available online for you to do with your children.  As always we are here to help should you need it and will do all we can to support you. 

I know that this is hugely frustrating but by working together we can, and are, moving forward.  We all have different views and I have made it clear that whatever decision we make regarding whether we can extend the offer to more year groups in schools, it is for the parents of these children to decide if they want to send them to school.  We will not be enforcing fines or punishments at this time.

As I said last week, please continue to work with your children to develop their own idea of personal space and also please focus on washing hands and good practice for when they need to cough or sneeze.  More guidance on this can be found on our websites and also on the government website.

Thank you for all you are doing.  It is truly an honour to serve such an amazing community and I know we have built a real partnership within the trust by doing what we know is best for our children. We will inform you as soon as possible regarding any changes that we may be making. 

Thank you again.

Best wishes,
