Possible phased re-opening of schools

As many of you will be aware, the Prime Minister addressed the nation on Sunday evening. The Prime Minister indicated that the government believes it may be able to implement a phased re-opening of schools from 1st June, starting with children in reception, year one and year six. This is part of the government’s conditional plan which it says will remain under regular review.


As school leaders, our priority is always the safety of everyone in the school community and this proposal will have prompted many questions. We are waiting to receive more information from the government about what this means for our school and until then we will be unlikely to be able to answer any questions.

Rest assured school staff and governors are working tirelessly on your behalf and in consultation with the local authority and union leaders so that we can gain a better understanding of the plan and seek further clarification as to the best way forward.

In the short term nothing has changed, and we will provide you with further information in the coming days and weeks once we are able to do so.

In the meantime, we will be continuing, as before, to offer home learning activities for all year groups, and our schools remain open on request for children of critical workers and vulnerable children who cannot be safely cared for at home.
