Friday 29th May

Dear Parents and Carers,


Thank you very much to those of you who have called in today to ask questions about the wider opening of school following Prime Minister Johnson's announcement last night.


Monday 8th June is the very earliest that our school might be able to open more widely. Please see Tuesday's letters for more detail.


I am optimistic that we can start to introduce new groups of children during June in addition to our childcare offer that has been running for the past nine weeks.


If and when we are able to open for Nursery, Reception, Year One and Year Six as the Government has suggested, it is highly unlikely to be all year groups at once; it will not be possible to provide enough adults for all of the small groups described in Mr. McCarthy's letter until shielding is lifted for our many colleagues in isolation. I will be contacting the parents of Nursery, Reception, Year One and Year Six directly next week to discuss the possible return to school.


I am so grateful for your continued messages of support during this time and am excited by the prospect of opening the school more widely in the coming weeks.



Thomas McMorrin
