Update on wider opening of school

Dear Parents/Carers,

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement in May regarding the wider opening of schools, Mead is now welcoming back children from Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6. The school continues to cater for children of Key Workers and children deemed vulnerable.

To make sure that the children and staff are able to social distance when appropriate, returning children are in allocated bubbles of no more than 10 children. To enable this, each year group has allotted days and times. I would like to thank all parents and carers for supporting the school while we were setting up the systems to allow for wider opening and in following all of the guidelines when bringing children back into school. You have helped to make it a very smooth process for everyone.

To make sure we can continue to plan effectively, the school will not be taking any further children after 6th July, your last chance to request a place will be 1st July 2020.

Please note that the last day of term is Friday 17th July 2020.

Earlier this week, the Prime Minister announced that in September all children will return to school. The school is currently waiting for guidance from the Department for Education to find out how this is planned to happen and whether we will still have to plan for social distancing etc. I will let you know as soon as I have further details.

Thank you again for your support,

Mrs L Smith
