Firstly we would like to thank you for your prompt replies to the survey we sent out last week about the proposed reopening of schools to specific year groups. This has provided us with some indicative numbers. We are ever mindful that each family has their own unique circumstances which will inform their decision making around this, and recognize that for some families more information was needed for them to make these decisions.
As we suggested in the letter which accompanied the survey, we have used the survey information to put together a prospective plan for reopening which is flexible and follows the government advice. This letter contains some details of the proposed provision and information around the offer. Please be aware that this is subject to changes as guidance, advice and timings are likely to be regularly updated by the government. Hopefully this information will help parents to inform their thinking and decision making.
We now need you to advise us if you intend to send your child once partial opening begins. Please read the information within this letters carefully before completing the new survey indicating if you are likely to send your child once the partial reopening of school begins. You will need to complete a separate survey for each child. We will then model our response based on these numbers.
We are likely to phase children into school one year group at a time, over a 2 week timeframe to allow us to develop and test our protocols and to support systems for social distancing of adults at entry and exit points. We are likely to offer a full day with some slight adjustments to timings which allow for staggered starts and multiple drop offs. We will only be offering a morning nursery session. More detail and timings will follow once we have firmer numbers and guidelines to work to.
We also want to reassure parents who decide to continue with home learning that this will continue to be planned by the teachers and will be communicated via dojo and the website.
An overview of the proposed provision, including some of the measures we will be taking and our protocols are detailed on the attached sheet. As always we consider the health and well-being of our pupils as a priority and will be working to support this in all we do. Please read this carefully before reply to the survey using the link below:
In the meantime, the school is still open for children of critical workers only. We know some employers will be encouraging you to return to work, but we’re not in a position to extend places to other children until we receive further government guidance.
We will be in touch again once we have analysed your responses and have been able to confirm details of our plans to begin the opening of school safely.
With kindest regards
Mrs D Ball
