Challenging times- but more Inspiring Young Minds

We had a plan that would enable all children to not only spend 1 morning with their current teacher but also have a morning with their new teacher. However, we were strongly advised by both the Local Authority and also Public health England not to implement the plan as adults are currently only allowed to work with 1 group of 15 children each week- and if they change from 1 group to another there needs to be a gap of 2 weeks. Taking that into account teachers are currently working with 1 group however hard we tried we simply could not square that circle. 

We are doing all we can to ensure all children can return to school safely for September, whilst obviously adhering to the guidelines which are likely to be in place at the time. We have plans for 5 alternative models of provision, working on the assumption that one of our models will reflect the guidelines, or be able to be adapted quickly to reflect them. We are also planning on how best to meet the needs of those children starting school for the first time in September. 

We have now just under 150 children in school each day, who are all learning, playing and yes simply enjoying being with each other. Whilst the atmosphere is different, in my judgement it continues to be very calm, purposeful and increasingly relaxed for both adults and children alike.
