We had lots of response to our survey last week regarding parent views on a return to school. Having spent some time working out the logistics and various 'what if' scenarios, I am pleased to say that we are able to invite years 2, 3, 4 & 5 back for at least 1 week before the end of term.
We have tried to be as creative with this plan as possible whilst following the necessary safety guidelines. Any decisions about this further opening to children have been based on the following information: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/preparing-for-the-wider-opening-of-schools-from-1-june/planning-guide-for-primary-schools#inviting-back-additional-pupils-where-there-is-capacity
Based on the survey responses and the fact that the year 5s have the least amount of time left in primary school, all the children in this year group who wish to can attend school from Monday 22nd June until the end of term, Friday 17th July.
We are, however, very keen to ensure that all children get at least a week in school before the end of term. As such, Years 2, 3 and 4 will be invited into school for 1 week per year group. In addition, we will be inviting all Pupil Premium and SEND children in to school for at least 2 days a week. Start and end times for each year group, along with lunch and breaks will be staggered to help ease the volume and movement of parents and pupils across the day.
We are so pleased to be able to offer time in school for so many pupils, and are really looking forward to their return!
