Dear parents and carers,
As I am sure you are aware, the Prime Minister announce a potential expansion of the number of children that are able to attend primary schools. Please find, below in italics, the passage from today's Department for Education update.
We really appreciate your support and patience during the current situation and hope to be able to bring your further details as to our next steps regarding the school attendance, when this is available.
Please keep safe. Phil Chantler
Phased opening of early years settings and schools to more pupils from 1 June
Yesterday, the Prime Minister addressed the nation on coronavirus. The Prime Minister announced that from 1 June at the earliest, primary pupils may be able to begin going back into school in stages, beginning with Reception, year 1 and year 6. Our ambition is that secondary pupils facing exams next year will get some time with their teachers before the summer holidays. We will also ask childcare settings to prepare to open for more children from 1 June.
We will publish further guidance setting out more information for early years, schools and colleges later today.
