We are all relieved that, after so many weeks at home, children in EYFS and Year 1 will be able to return to school and be with their friends and teachers. But likewise, I know that some parents and children will be anxious about returning after such a long time and with the on-going concerns about COVID-19 very much in our minds.
I hope, therefore, that what is set out below gives everyone the reassurance they need about how the school will operate when it reopens so that everyone is looked after well. The safety, health and well-being of everyone in the school is, of course, my highest priority. We will therefore be putting in place the full recommendations that the government scientists have made for ‘protective measures’ so that the school can be run safely, hygienically and with appropriate social distancing in place.
