I am sure that many of you will have listened to the Prime Minister’s announcement and will have many questions relating to the changes, in particular relating to the potential phased return for some children in primary schools from June 1st and some secondary students at a later date.

At the moment, schools are still unclear about changes to guidance. We will continue to provide care for vulnerable children, and the children of key workers critical to the COVID-19 response, if they cannot be cared for safely at home. Once we receive clarification from the DfE and the LA, we will use it alongside our own planning to ensure that any phased return has a fundamental consideration of the safety of our children, families and staff at its heart.

Pleased be assured that we will provide additional updates as soon as we have them.

Mrs Brammer
