Reception to Y6 ALL RETURN TO SCHOOL ON Monday 8th March

Good morning,

After the most recent announcements from the Prime Minister on Monday 22nd February it is mandatory that your child attends school from Monday 8th March.  We need a period of time to re-establish school rules and routines and enable the children to settle and socialise. Well-being is our initial priority for the children and parents.  We will also be planning additional wellbeing support and learning packages for after school once the children have settled and staff have been able to identify needs. Your cooperation and support is, as always, appreciated in this matter.

Although not ideal if we have a positive case of staff or children, bubbles will have to be closed for the duration of the isolation period and remote learning will commence.  It is essential that parents and carers continue to wear masks and adhere to social distancing rules when dropping your child off.  Please can you also be vigilant following isolation protocols and keeping children with symptoms away from school until they have been tested. Doing this will help us to keep disruption with any school closures to an absolute minimum.  Reception to Y2 parents can enter the school grounds but please only one adult per child to keep numbers on site reduced. These measures are purely to keep us safe and minimise infection risks and help us in the journey to getting back to some level of normality.

May I take this opportunity from all of the staff in thanking you for your continued support in making this very difficult Lockdown easier by supporting your children with their remote learning. We understand that this has been very challenging for everyone involved.

In the meantime, keep safe and well.

Mr Bailey

Head Teacher

Birdwell Primary School
