Covid-19 Return to School and Further Resources
During this time of uncertainty, as we follow Government, Local Authority and GST advice, to safely open the school more widely, we will be updating this page with information and guidance as and when it becomes available.
We have now re-opened to children in Year 6, Year 1 and Reception only. Children in Year 6 are attending Monday to Thursday at the Westcott site, on a Friday, a thorough and extensive clean takes place. Children in Year 1and Reception are attending Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday at the Abinger site, with an extensive clean taking place on Wednesday. Year 6 and Year 1 children, who are not returning to school, home learning will continue as usual, for now.
Key Worker and Vulnerable children will continue to have provision five days a week, from Monday 1st June 2020.
At this stage, we do not have plans to offer children spaces in the remaining year groups, beyond the ones mentioned by the Government so far. This is due to the lack of space and staff needed for social distancing.
