Home / Phase 2 Re-opening Guidance & Information
Firstly, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our parents and carers for the support that you have shown the school during this unprecedented and very difficult time. Our most recent challenge has been to prepare the school for the phased reopening as announced recently by the government. In order to do this, we have followed detailed guidance from both the Government and Essex County Council regarding recommended measures that must be implemented to ensure the minimisation of any risk of contamination to both pupils and staff. As ever, the safety of our children and staff remains paramount. This reopening model is a joint collaboration with staff and governors.
I appreciate that many children and parents may feel anxious about returning to school. It must be understood by all parties that the reopening of schools, as with any other social situation, still involves a small level of risk of infection with Covid-19 as this is simply due to increased contact with others, and, as such, this phased return is optional for Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 pupils. We sincerely hope that you are reassured that we have done all that we can to minimise this risk by implementing a comprehensive series of safety measures, as outlined in this document below and the supporting, FAQs and Home School Agreement.
Should you have any questions, please do get in touch.
