REOPENING OF SCHOOL TO MORE PUPILS

Following the Government’s confirmation yesterday evening (28th May) that schools should begin wider re-opening, I am writing to inform you of our plan. Please be aware that even this plan is subject to change, pending any new developments with the Covid-19 situation or as a result of any new guidance. Our plan is:

On Monday 8th June, vulnerable pupils and pupils of key workers who have already been attending school during the lock-down period will return to school from 8.30am until 3.30pm until the school breaks up for the summer holidays on Friday 17th July.

On Monday 15th June, Year 6 pupils will return to school from 8.30am until 2.30pm. They will be taught in groups (‘bubbles’) of 6 pupils maximum per classroom until school breaks up for the summer holidays on Friday 17th July. Year 6 will be taught in either the Olympic Building or the Main Building.

No sooner than Monday 22nd June, Year 1 pupils will return to school from 9am until 3pm until school breaks up for the summer holidays on Friday 17th July. Year 1 will be taught in groups (‘bubbles’) of 10 pupils maximum. Year 1 pupils will be taught in St Richard’s Building. 

No sooner than Monday 29th June, Reception pupils will return to school from 9.30am until 3.30pm until school breaks up for the summer holidays on Friday 17th July. They will be taught in groups (‘bubbles’) of 12 pupils maximum. Reception pupils will be taught in the EYFS Building.
