I hope that you are all enjoying the gorgeous weather?? Don't forget your sun cream. Charlotte had hers on yesterday and still got a little burned. !!
I have been working with the LA and Head Teacher colleagues until about ten minutes ago on opening schools to more children. When I was listening to my friends I was surprised at our different circumstances but proud of the determination to bring children back as soon as possible, safely and well.
Some schools are in areas of high infection still. Two schools have had gas leaks. At St. Margaret's I predict that up to a quarter of staff may not be able to return yet because of underlying health conditions., or the health conditions of people in their household. Every single member of staff has expressed that they WANT to be in school and that they/I, miss your children very very much.
I am going to listen to the PM announcement later and then, depending on what he says, send a letter out to parents of Y6 children initially, tomorrow. Other year groups will follow. I am working with the Governors and staff on which year groups this will be. I know that you will continue to support the decisions school makes. You have been utterly amazing. Thank you so much.
