Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced that children in Foundation Stage, Year 1 and Year 6 should return to school in the week commencing Monday June 1st, 2020. As you are aware, we were all prepared and ready to be open on Wednesday 3rd June to pupils in Nursery, Reception, Y1 and Y6 but on Monday, following advice from the Director of Public Health at Doncaster for all schools in Doncaster, the Trust made the decision to delay opening. On Monday1st June and Tuesday 2nd June, we had two training days to fully prepare for re-opening and so we feel ready for welcoming pupils back as soon as we are advised it is safe to do so. All classrooms and resources have been organised to ensure social distancing; the school is equipped with the relevant PPE; classroom sizes and staffing have been carefully planned; playtimes and lunchtimes arrangements planned to ensure social distancing. The Midday supervisors also received training on socially distant games to play during lunch.
Any information regarding the re-opening of school will be posted below over the coming days and weeks; we will keep you up to date as much as we can.
However, if you have any specific queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us via Class Dojo, the parent app or using firstname.lastname@example.org – we will get back in touch as soon as we can.
