I am sure that like me, you have all been watching the developments and updated guidance from central government with great interest. I am also sure that like me, you have felt a sense of relief that a full closure of schools, as seen in March, is only going to happen as a very last resort.
As a school community we are doing everything that we can to ensure that our children and staff are kept as safe as possible, keeping our bubbles separate and ensuring that hands are washed regularly. The new arrangements for collection and drop off seem to be working well, with less of a bottleneck and more opportunities to social distance for parents and children. For this system to continue to be effective and in an attempt to avoid the spread of COVID 19, I must reiterate how important it is that children are dropped off and collected on time, from their designated areas and that parents leave the school site as quickly as possible. For you information I have attached a guide, produced by WCF, that clarifies some of the guidance regarding when your child should attend school and when they should be kept at home.
I am keenly aware that the way we are operating as a school may seem draconian to some, but the goal of minimising transmission rates and remaining fully open is at the forefront of our current decision making processes.
This Friday, I will be hosting a drop-in Zoom session. If you would like to catch up with me or have a question that you would like to ask, I will be available at 2.00pm for an hour. To ensure confidentiality, I will only admit one person into the chat at a time, so please be patient if you are sat in the virtual waiting room!

Please continue to stay safe,
