I expect that many of you, like us, were glued to the television last night awaiting the Prime Minister's broadcast.
You will no doubt have seen that the plan is for Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 to return to school on the 1st June. This is provisional on the virus being contained and is not confirmed at this stage. We have been anticipating a phased return and as such have embryonic plans underway to work towards a phased return.
It is going to be a significant challenge for school to reopen in three weeks time and we are awaiting further information from the government on how this will look in school. We will need to hear how the government expects social distancing to work in schools and what provision is required. It is likely not all children will be taught by their class teacher.
We will update you further when we have received further guidance and have spoken to our staff and other parties.
We are missing your children, take care of them and yourselves. We hope that you and your loved ones are safe and well.

Acting Executive Head Teacher Acting Head of School
