Update - 22nd May 2020

This week, parents will have received a letter with the provisional schedule for small group reopening. 

Parents will also have received a detailed letter explaining what to expect in terms of social distancing and learning provision in school. 

Parents in eligible groups will have received today a simple yes / no response request on if you would like your child to return to school. 

Detailed "return to school" invitations to children will be sent out week commencing June 1st.
