Tonight’s announcement by the Prime Minister has stated that in Step 2 of the Government’s plan, that from June 1st at the earliest, Primary Pupils will begin to return to school in a phased manner, starting with Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 children.
If this goes ahead, how this will be managed will depend on many measures including if social distancing rules will still need to apply. Currently, there are too many questions raised for any school to identify a clear way forward. It is hoped the Government will clarify phase 2 over the coming days. The Local Authority will be liaising with the Department of Education in an attempt to find out some important answers.
Therefor I wanted to inform you that it will be the afternoon of Wednesday 13th before I will contact you again with an update on this situation.
Thank you for your patience.
