School Re-opening

Following last night's statement by the Prime Minister, I am sure you have lots of questions just as we do.


At the moment, for us in school, there is no change in the guidance. We will continue to provide care in school for children whose parents' work is critical to the COVID-19 response and who cannot be cared for at home, and for children who are deemed vulnerable. The message is still that it is safer to stay at home. 


We have not yet received any information to support us with the plan announced last night to start the phased re-opening of some year groups. We expect to receive further information from the Department for Education shortly.


We will need clear guidance to plan how it is possible to social distance in school and keep our children, teachers and families safe. Please be assured that there is no way we will reopen until we are fully prepared.


As always, we will keep you informed as soon as we know anything. Our plan for now is to keep providing activities for those learning at home, to keep in contact with you and to support you all in any way that we can in these difficult times. Take care and stay safe, SMSB.
