From June 1st 2020 the Government are proposing that schools reopen for certain pupils based on their 5 tests as listed below:
We want to begin to reopen schools and colleges as soon as we can. But this needs to be safe for society, for children and their families and the staff who work in them.
We have these five tests which the Government should show will be met by reliable evidence, peer-reviewed science and transparent decision-making.
The new case count must be much lower than it is now, with a sustained downward trend and confidence that new cases are known and counted promptly. And the Government must have extensive arrangements for testing and contact tracing to keep it that way.
The Government must have a national plan including parameters for both appropriate physical distancing and levels of social mixing in schools, as well as for appropriate PPE, which will be locally negotiated at school-by-school and local authority level.
Comprehensive access to regular testing for children and staff to ensure our schools and colleges don’t become hot spots for Covid-19.
Protocols to be put in place to test a whole school or college when a case occurs and for isolation to be strictly followed.
Vulnerable staff, and staff who live with vulnerable people, must work from home, fulfilling their professional duties to the extent that is possible. Plans must be specifically address the protection of vulnerable parents, grandparents and carers.
We are currently in contact with parents to assess which pupils are likely to return and when. Please note that you must have discussed arrangements, requested a place for your child prior to them returning.
We continue to accept key worker and vulnerable pupils. Again if you think you fall into this category please contact the school should your circumstances have changed. For possible June 1st start contact the office by 21st May.
We can all help control the virus if we all stay alert. This means you must:
Do not leave home if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.
