We have further information for all families regarding the potential wider re-opening of school and at this point would like to share our outline plans. A letter from our Headteacher and Chair of Governors can be seen below alongside information from the York Schools and Academies Board who represent all schools in York.
It is important to remember that all plans regarding school opening are subject to updated government guidance expected on Thursday 28th May. 

The documents below have been sent to families via Weduc, Parent Pay and Tapestry. We apologise if you receive this information more than once but we want to make sure that we reach as many of you as possible.

Below is the latest information from the Local authority about the reopening of Schools in York. There will be more information to follow which we will update you on.

Parents whose work is critical to the COVID-19 response include those who work in health and social care and in other key sectors. See link below.

Many parents working in these sectors may be able to ensure their child is kept at home and every child who can be safely cared for at home should be.

Please, therefore, follow these key principles:

1. If it is at all possible for children to be at home, then they should be.

2. If a child needs specialist support, is vulnerable or has a parent who is a critical worker, then educational provision will be available for them.

3. Parents should not rely for childcare upon those who are advised to be in the stringent social distancing category such as grandparents, friends, or family members with underlying conditions.

4. Parents should also do everything they can to ensure children are not mixing socially in a way which can continue to spread the virus. They should observe the same social distancing principles as adults.

Further information will follow from school. Thank you for your continued support.
