Good morning everyone,
How lovely it is to see the sun returning, as we navigate these uncertain times it certainly seems to make things a little easier! Hopefully you will have continued to receive guidance from the teachers around home learning activities. I would also like to draw your attention to the latest Collective Worship from Mr Buckeridge along with the new Sporting competition (cricket) run by Mr Plumb and the Lincolnshire SGO's.
Finally, I hope that today you will all have received the following letter via ParentMail, which explains where we are up to with regard to the reopening of our school.
Take care and we look forward to seeing you all soon,
May 12th 2020
As you will all be aware the government have now released information about the reopening of schools. This will see children in year 6, year 1 and Foundation Stage return to school on Monday 1st June with other year groups to follow at a later stage.
We realise that this is a very uncertain time for all members of our school community and there are still many questions to be answered. I would like to take this opportunity to reassure you that the whole staff team are committed to getting our school reopened for the communities we serve. We now have very clear guidance from the government around the steps we can take to ensure that school will be as safe as is possible at these times.
Myself, and the Senior Leadership Team are meeting later today to finalise our plans as to how things will look on 1st June along with any other measures we will need to put in place. These plans will then be shared with the trustees’ tomorrow evening. Once these plans have been agreed by all we will share them with yourselves later this week to give you clear guidance for the future. I firmly believe that at this time we as a school have a duty to be open and honest with yourselves so that you are best placed to make an informed decision over whether you choose to send your child into school or not.
As a parent myself, I fully understand the concerns that many of you may have about sending you children back to school and as the government have indicated there will be no punishments for anyone choosing to keep their children at home for an extended period. Having said this we are all committed to making our school a safe place for the children to return to and the safety of all members of our school community will be our number priority throughout.
We all look forward to seeing you again soon, take care and continue to stay safe.
My kindest regards,
