The Prime Minister's announcement

This evening the Prime Minister gave us the first details of our route out of lockdown and the possible reopening of schools to more pupils. He told us that, if the rate of infection continues to fall, that the children of Reception, Year One and Year Six may be able to return to school next half-term, from 1st June. Parents will have many questions, about how their children and their families, and the school teachers, will be kept safe. It cannot simply be a return to normal lessons.  

Over the next two weeks, the school leadership team will draw up plans, taking advice from the Department of Education, the Local Authority, PaJeS (our national organisation of Jewish schools) and teachers' unions. Plans will be scrutinised and agreed with the school's Governing Body and will be shared with the parents. Everyone must be confident that any reopening of school is safe.  

For the remainder of this half-term, there is no change. The school is open only for the small handful of key workers' children, who have the prior agreement from Mr Langford. All other children are to stay at home, checking the blogs on Monday morning for their weekly core tasks. We need ALL children to complete the core tasks, in reading, writing, spelling and maths. Further tasks are shared for the foundation subjects, and more ideas for learning activities, on Wednesdays, for those families who are able to make use of them.  

Stay safe and wash your hands.
