To: Parents/Carers Subject: Possible opening of Springfields in June


Dear Parents/Carers,

We know that you will have seen in the news that schools may open to a wider group of children on 1 June, IF the government and the Trust think it is safe to do so. There will be lots more guidance and debate between now and then which may change this date.

Using all the guidance that we have, and our knowledge and expertise regarding our site and your children we are taking the time to create a risk assessment and action plan for the wider opening of Springfields, both North and South. We will share the details of this information with you as soon as possible. These documents will be explicit about the measures we are taking to control and limit risks. We recognise that it is a very unsettling time for us all, but please rest assured that we will not open the school for any pupils unless strict control measures can be put into place.

Please note that as classes need to be smaller in number so that social distancing can be in place, we may not be able to take all children on a full-time basis. Some children will be in school part time.

We understand that it will be difficult for you to make an informed decision on sending your child back to school, without knowing the detail of our plans. However, thank you for giving us a sense this week, of your current thinking about the possible return to school in June. Attendance is encouraged but is voluntary in the sense that no action will be taken (such as a penalty notice) if you choose not to send your child. Learning will continue, as it is now, through our virtual school.

I would like to thank you for your continuing support in helping your child to learn from home and your support for our school. Please take care and stay safe.

If you have any questions, please contact admin@springfields

Kind regards

Jon Hamp
