Re: Possible reopening of school to more pupils in June 2020
I hope you are all keeping well and safe. We know you have seen in the news that schools may reopen on 1 June to reception, year 1 and year 6 pupils if the government thinks it is safe then. We are waiting for further guidance and clarification from the government right now, which will hopefully help us create an action plan for our phased reopening. We will share this with you as soon as possible so you know what the school’s reopening will look like in practice. It is a very unsettling time for us all, but rest assured that we are going to be doing everything we can to make sure we are ready to receive these year groups if it is safe for our school to reopen in the coming weeks. However, we are also not going to be pressuring anyone to send their children to school, since you know your children and personal situation best. We will keep you updated with all our preparations for making sure the school is as safe as possible, so you can make an informed decision. In the meantime, the school is still open only for vulnerable pupils and the children of critical workers. We know some employers will be encouraging you to return to work, but we are not in a position right now to extend places to other children until we receive further government guidance. On behalf of the governors, staff and myself I would like to say a big thank you for helping your child/ren to access the teaching and learning on Google Classroom, adapting to these new circumstances and supporting your child/ren’s mental wellbeing, and keeping your child/ren safe online. The staff and I are missing all our LFPA children and families! Please keep safe and well by following the government guidance during this lock down period.
