The DfE published updated guidance yesterday to reflect the changes announced by the Prime Minister:
The guide below explains how we will be reopening school from 8th March
We would like to thank you for the huge effort that you have put in to provide remote education for your child during national restrictions and are pleased to announce that school and Lookout club will be open to all pupils from 8th March and school attendance is compulsory.
Since January, our staff have been using twice weekly asymptomatic testing as an additional measure to protect those children who have continued to access education in school.
All changes that we make to our provision aim to reduce any spread of the COVID-19 virus, keep your family safe and to ensure that we do not have to close school and restart our home learning provision.
