I’m sure after the Prime Ministers statement last night you are left with many questions. As school staff and leaders, we too have lots of questions that need clarification.
For the moment there is no change to the guidance we are following and have done since 20th March. We will provide care for those parents whose work is critical to the COVID-19 response and only for those that can not be safely cared for at home. The message is still it is safer to stay at home.
We have not received any information to support us with the phased reopening for some year groups. We expect we will receive further information from the DFE shortly, with hopefully some clarification. We will need clear guidance to plan how it is possible to social distance in schools, ensure home learning continues for those not at school and most importantly keep our children, teachers and families safe.
Please be assured that we will keep you informed, but until we have a firm proposal of how and when, try not to worry.
For now, we will continue to provide activities for learning at home, keep contact with you, our families, and continue to support each other in these very difficult and uncertain times.
