You will be aware of the news today included in the earlier post about the announcement of a full return to school in August. As you know we have been working on our proposed blended model as part of the national recovery plan for pupils returning to school in August. We have the proposed model shared at the Parent Council meeting on June 18th based on 2m social distancing and we have been preparing a model for 1m social distancing.
As you know, we will do all we can to welcome our children back to school in August. For now, we have been asked to have the proposal and contingency plans in place until more information is provided. This means we will continue with current plans until advised of new guidelines for the return. On Friday, we will email you as planned the details of your child’s group for returning in August and the teacher who will be the key point of contact. When we know of any changes that we can make to the group structures/ attendance at school, we will do so. We are also providing information to the authority about staffing required for our proposed model to move to the 3 & 2 version (children in school 50% of the time over 2 weeks). We hope to have more news of this soon.
Meantime, thank you for your ongoing support – we will keep you up-to-date with any developments as soon as we are able to. With very best wishes, Mrs Snedden
