Status of Schools Update 11th May

Following the announcement from the Prime Minister on Sunday the 10th May we will begin to make plans to open primary schools to reception, year 1 and year 6 pupils from the 1st June in a phased return, should the conditions set out by the Prime Minister be met. The Prime Minister also set out his ambition to open schools in some way to years 10 and 12 before the end of the Summer term. Considerable, care and thought needs to go into our planning to ensure that schools are opened safely to both children and staff. This will be our primary concern. Further detail will follow as the government releases more guidance.

In the meantime, staff in schools are working hard to ensure that remote learning is effective. We fully appreciate the work that parents and pupils have put into making remote learning a success and thank you for your continued support.
