I hope this communication finds you and your families well.
Next week, following government recommendations, all of our schools will open more widely for specific groups of children.
There has been significant planning to ensure that we have taken every action, following government and Public Health advice, to ensure that all our schools are ready to welcome back our pupils from those identified year groups.
Each school’s risk and opening plans are being made available via their websites and, despite media debate as to whether social distancing will be relaxed, a 2m distancing rule remains in place until that point we are directed otherwise by the government.
As from next week, unless there are any significant changes to our planned arrangements, you will receive letters directly from your headteacher. This means that there will be a reduction in the regularity of central communications from the Trust.
I am pleased to report that we have now received our Trust allocation of digital devices as part of a national scheme that aims to ensure that pupils from particular groups have laptops to support online working. Our schools will begin making contact with the parents/carers of those affected pupils from Monday to explain how the laptops can be collected and used.
I know that these have been difficult times for families, for a variety of reasons, and we all look forward to some form of normality.
As soon as we have greater clarity regarding what provision might look like from September, hoping that we can welcome back as many of our pupils as possible, we will share our plans with you.
Once again thank you for your patience in these unusual times and I wish you all a safe and happy weekend.
