RE: Changes to the provision for children who are already in school
I am writing to let you know firstly, that we are very proud to be able to support you by offering school provision for you during this difficult time. We acknowledge that these are very stressful and difficult times for you and your family and we are very happy to offer your child/children a school place while ever we continue to have capacity.
Secondly, I would like to share with you updates that we have had to enable us to plan for the return of more children. This will affect you and your family too.
Changes to our provision
very hard to do so please help us by explaining to your child how important it is that they try not to touch anyone who is not in their household.
This is true for all of the time that the government is saying that these measures are necessary for the safety of everyone. I have a duty of care to the other children and to the staff that are working alongside them.
You are all aware by now that school is closed next week due to a lack of demand for provision. This will allow us to take stock of the SAGE advice issued later today and plan accordingly.
As you will see from my other letter today, we are not yet in a position to say when we will be opening the school to more pupils. Planning for this needs to be very carefully done and it is clear that the 1st of June is going to be too early for us. However, provision for your child is secure from the 1st of June.
Many thanks for helping us to help you by keeping our staff team safe at this time.
Best wishes. Thank you to you for playing your part!
