Dear Parents and Carers
I hope that you have all had a restful half term holiday?
I have received an email from Bury's Director of Children's Services, March 8th is still the date from which schools will start to re-open. That is how things stand at the moment, but there is no detail about what this will look like. Therefore, I am unsure whether all the children will be able to return or whether the return will be phased as it was in June. The hope of all the staff is that we can all return and be together.
When the Prime Minister gives more detail later today, we will know more.
In light of this, until March 8th, school will continue with remote learning twice daily. We have increased the number of Zoom sessions to two following requests from a significant number of parents. However, school recognises the pressures on working parents. The work for the day is on your child's class page each morning. If a second Zoom each afternoon is not feasible within your working day then clearly school would not wish to put any further pressure upon you. The pressures on all of us are already significant. Complete what work you can in whatever way is best for your family.
If a second Zoom gives more structure to your child's day then this is what school was hoping to achieve.
If one Zoom is sufficient to meet your needs then this is also what school has always hoped to achieve.
School will re-open to children of critical workers and to those who are vulnerable on Tuesday 23rd Feb. Today, I will be consulting with Miss Glover and Miss Gaff to further identify how best to support our youngest children.
Keep safe and well.
Mrs. Perry x
