Government Guidance - September 2020

Announcement from Gavin Williamson (Education Secretary) 

Dear Families,

The announcement last week from Gavin Williamson (Education Secretary) confirmed that schools will be able to increase their pupil numbers and open to other Year Groups from September 2020.   

We have been reading the documentation carefully and it is clear that we will need to continue with many of our current measures, in order to keep risk to a minimum and uphold the safety of the children and staff whilst in school and travelling to and from school.  We are aware that the more details we can provide you with early on, the more you will be able to plan, so once we have consulted with governors and Parent Forum, we will aim to let you know more information by Friday 17th July.  

We know that this is a difficult time for you all. Thank you for your patience and continued support; we continue to be so grateful for this.
