The proposed model for re-opening school in August 2020 at Milton of Leys enables pupils to attend schools two days per week. As shared at the Parent Council meeting last night, this is subject to change depending on government and local authority guidance and has the safety and well-being of pupils, staff and families at the centre.
We are expected to be able to share with the whole school community the draft proposal next week following further expected guidance from the local authority. At this stage we will share detailed plans for our expected model based on the most up-to-date requirements.
Our draft model is based on current guidance to maximise face-to-face contact in-school for pupils when schools return in August with the current 2m social distancing requirement. We have planned for this taking into account our local factors of projected school roll, staffing and school space. We appreciate that this proposal may need to be revised if guidance changes before we begin school on August 12th 2020.
To help support parents with work commitments, we are sending out this short survey which asks you to state a preference between Monday&Tuesday OR Wednesday&Thursday for your children. We will take into account siblings (including nursery) when allocating days for next session. Please submit your form by 10am on Tuesday June 23rd. As mentioned last night we aim to confirm the days of the week, child’s group and key adult/teacher for August by the end of the day on June 26th.
For now though, thank you so much for the fantastic support you have given the school as a community. It was wonderful to have so many parents join the Parent Council meeting last night – over 90 households! We can’t wait to have the children back in school with us again in August. Happy weekend!
