It may seem a lot to take in but we want to be completely transparent about the measures in place and hope that they are all reassuring.
It is our plan that all pupils, in all year groups, will return to school full-time from the beginning of the autumn term 2020. Our transition arrangements are in place for September remain, and I’m sure you will agree, returning to school will be a positive step for children's education and well-being, and will be an important move back towards normal life for many children and families.
While our aim is to have all pupils back at school in the autumn, we have also planned for the possibility of a local lockdown and how we will ensure continuity of education. All communication will be via email and text alerts and home learning will be provided by our staff via the school website and going forward through Google Classroom. We are currently busy refining our individual pupil access to the Google Classroom Educational suite of tools, to allow remote learning to be facilitated at home.
