Dear Parents and Guardians,
I hope that you and your families are safe and well. Thank you so much for all of your patience, understanding and co-operation whilst we have been trying to formulate our cautious plan for a possible phased return. As you will be aware Lancashire have now made a statement last night, which is advising schools in Lancashire not to reopen to more pupils from 1st June. This is because Lancashire does not meet all five of the government's test which would allow pupils to return safely.
We will regularly review the situation and provide further information when it becomes available. As it stands we will only be continuing to open to our 'Vulnerable' and Critical Worker families as we have done so since 20th March.
The safety and welfare of our whole school family is paramount within all aspects of our planning. Therefore, we have decided, in consultation with the governing body, that it is vital that we take very cautious, stringent, and vigilant steps to ensure the safest possible phased return to school.
Please note that there is the possibility that no further children return before the end of the summer term, unless the advice from Lancashire changes.
Once again, we wish to thank you for your continued support of school during these unprecedented times and realise that this is a very frustrating period for all our families. There is nothing better that we would like than to see all our children back in school. We miss you all.
