Reopening School

Who can attend school? - YR, Y1, Y6 classes and keyworker children and vulnerable children

Posted 13/5/2020 at 11.55am.

The government has issued guidance confirming that primary schools will be expected to open for pupils in Year Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 from 1st June at the earliest.  Please note that the government may revise its advice and that therefore this date may change.  Please also note that Monday 1st June is an INSET day and children will therefore return to Primet Primary School on 2nd June at the earliest.

Children of key workers or vulnerable children may continue to attend school in accordance with guidance previously issued.

No child will be able to attend school without prior notice.  Please notify school as soon as possible and no later than 12 noon on Thursday May 14th if you intend to send your child to school.  School will contact you in writing as soon as possible and no later than Friday May 22nd in order to confirm that your child can attend school and to confirm their start and finish times and the drop off and pick up arrangements for your child.

The government has indicated that Y2, Y3, Y4 and Y5 will attend school for a month prior to the end of summer term.  We are awaiting further information on this and will update parents as soon as possible but at this time there is no targeted start date for these pupils.

We hope to make arrangements for our September 2020 Reception Class intake to have the opportunity to visit school before the end of term.  However this will only be done if we can ensure the health and safety of our current pupils, the visiting family and staff.  Further details will be forwarded to families as soon as possible.

If your child or anyone in your household has symptoms of Covid-19 then your child must not attend school but they and everyone in your household must follow the guidance issued by Public Health England on self isolating for 7 or 14 days as appropriate.  In this case, please contact school and we will agree with you on what date your child can return to school.

If you child shows symptoms of Covid-19 whilst at school, they will be immediately quarantined within school and you will be contacted and requested to collect your child as soon as possible.  A return to school date based on the guidance issued by Public Health England will be agreed with you.

If you child is unwell but not showing symptoms of Covid-19 we would ask that you not send your child in to school until you have contacted school.  We will discuss your child’s symptoms with you and agree whether or not your child can attend school and if not agree an appropriate date for your child to return to school.
