RE: provision for children of Critical workers, Nursery, Reception, Y1 and Y6 children
We have been asked by the government to extend our provision beyond the critical workers and vulnerable children to include Nursery, Reception, Y1 and Y6 pupils. We are now in a position to provide you with a detailed plan, having carried out extensive risk assessments and consulted with parents. The plan below may be subject to change should government guidance change or due to staff absence due to COVID 19.
Reopening will be staggered over a 2 week period from the 2nd of June. We have grouped the children into ‘learning bubbles’ of up to 10 children. School will be open usual hours Monday to Thursday and on Friday until 1pm. Critical worker provision will remain Monday to Friday usual hours from the 1st of June.
We will be continuing to assess the risks, test our systems and protocols and adapt the plan in line with the government guidance and in consultation with Diocese Academy Trust. We will notify you of any changes to the plans as and when they occur. Please be patient as we embed these arrangements as we work to ensure we provide the best care for all the pupils and our staff.
Please see the attached letters for details of the plan, including timings, organisation and protocols.
We have been delighted with the successful reopening of school to the targeted year groups. The children have settled back into the routines and are enjoyed their learning.
Now that the first phase of our reopening has been successfully completed and we have tested our procedure and protocols, we are aiming to bring more children back into school. To facilitate this from week commencing Monday the 29th June the year six children will be taught in 2 bubbles of 15. This is still in line with government guidance. Having 2 year 6 learning bubbles will increase classroom and staffing capacity. This will facilitate the year 5 children to return to school. Teachers will organise the grouping and we will make sure that your child is with a friend
We have been delighted with the successful reopening of school to the targeted year groups. The children have settled back into the routines and are enjoying their learning.
Now that the first phase of our reopening has been successfully completed and we have tested our procedures and protocols, we are aiming to bring more children back into school. This is in response to government advice that where possible schools should open to more children before the end of the summer term.
After canvassing some of the Year 5 parents we have been able to establish that we have capacity to open to this year group for those who wish to return. The rationale for opening to the year 5 children is so that we can prepare them for entering Year 6 next year. This will support the children to make a smooth transition. Their learning time over the next few weeks will include gap analysis, baseline assessment and forward planning for September. We are now able to offer places in two groups of up to 15.
Please read the attached letter which give details about how to request a year 5 place for your child and provides some information about the organisation for their return.
Requests for a place must be made via telephone to the school and need to be completed before 12 pm on Thursday 25th June at the latest.
