Dear Parents and Guardians,
I hope you all have had a wonderful half-term holiday. I wanted to update you with our latest thinking on the COVID Safety Measures that we have in place across the Federation.
We were very much hoping that by this stage in the National Roadmap we would be looking at the possibility of moving to larger bubbles and being able to lift several of the other measures we have in place. However, looking at both the local and national picture, we do not feel that now is the right time to be doing this.
Instead, we need to continue to do all we can to avoid any class bubbles having to be sent home. In school we are keen to ensure that planned enrichment experiences and activities go ahead by careful timetabling and putting in place as many COVID measures as we can. This will include trying to avoid large groups of children from different class bubbles mixing together.
All other plans for activities with parents coming onto site, or larger groups of children mixing will be revised nearer the time, according to the latest government guidance and restrictions.
The DfE guidance for primary schools has currently not changed, so until this happens or the national and local picture is looking more positive, our current Safety Measures will remain in place.
Miss J. Concannon Federation Headteacher
