Prime Minister's 'conditional plan'
12 May 2020 (by admin)
Following moves by other countries to begin a slow return to normality, on Sunday Boris Johnson announced provisional plans for some people to return to work and raised the possibility of some children returning to school "at the earliest by the 1st of June". However, he stressed that all plans were conditional on covid-19 infection rates continuing to fall and would be subject to change in the event that they begin to rise again. Naturally, this raises a lot of questions for parents about what this means for their children. We would like to make it clear that, for now, nothing changes in terms of children currently in school. We remain open only to children of key workers and those identified as vulnerable. As we receive guidance from the government and the local authority, we will change this advice as appropriate.
As always, the well-being of the children, parents, staff and indeed everyone in our community will be the highest priority for us, and we don't want anyone to feel anxious or worried about what's to come. Feel free to contact the school if you have any concerns whatsoever, and as soon as more details become available we will be passing them on to you.
