DUE TO CONTINUED SAFETY CONCERNS FOR OUR PUPILS, PARENTS AND STAFF, SCHOOL WILL NOT

REOPEN FOR NURSERY, RECEPTION, Y1 & Y6 PUPILS BEFORE 15th JUNE

Dear Parents and Carers

As you will be aware, we have been working exceptionally hard on preparing for school to potentially reopen from June 8th onwards to some year groups. As we are part of a Multi Academy Trust, the decision to reopen needs to be agreed by the Trust board, who met yesterday evening.

Although the Trust Directors were happy with the risk assessments we have undertaken and the detailed plans in place should our school reopen, they do not feel as though schools should be opening until 15th June 2020, at the earliest, due to the high transmission rate of Coronavirus in the North West at this present time. Their primary concern, like ours, is the safety of pupils, parents and staff.

I am sure you will agree that this is a sensible decision in light of higher infection rates in Manchester compared to other parts of the country.

The Trust Board, Heads and Chairs of Governors will be meeting again on 8th June in order to review the situation and agree on the next steps. We will keep you informed of any developments.
