Please see the article below about the amazing amount of money that Mason and other members or Tintwistle athletic have raised doing a 5K run. Mason has already raised £885 and we are all well proud of him.
Please see the letter below about a delay to wider opening.
We will continue to update you, take care and have a great weekend.
Good evening everyone,
I hope you are all well and we have had a successful first week at the school. It has been great to be back at our school and it has been lovely to see the children and staff.
We are going to four bubbles from next week as the number of children has increased for keyworkers and vulnerable children.
From W/C 15/06/2020, we are planning to open for year 6 pupils, which will be an additional two bubbles. This is provisional and based on guidelines and we will give as much notice as possible.
At the moment, it is not possible to plan further than 1 week in advance as the keyworker groups are increasing daily and must be our priority. We will give more information regarding capacity to offer year 1 and reception places as soon as possible. We really appreciate your understanding and we will only open for more pupils when it is safe to do so and we have the capacity.
Have a great weekend.
Best wishes and take care of yourselves.
Dear Parent, Guardians and Pupils,
I hope this letter finds you all well and I know these are difficult times for everyone. I also recognise the uncertainty about the possibility of schools opening on 01/06/2020 is an additional worry. Thank you all for responding to the poll and I really appreciate the conversations I have had with parents.
Although, this letter won’t answer every question or cover all details, I aim to highlight a plan supported by the Local Authority and DFE that will set out how we are going to safely reintroduce pupils back into our school and hopefully give you a clearer picture of how we plan to do this. However, please be aware that details may change. We want all of our children back at school as soon as possible but the overriding priority is and will always be the welfare of the pupils and staff.
Government guidelines issued by the DFE state, ‘1st June 2020 is the date from when schools may be able to extend their opening’ arrangements. Advice is changing daily and this term ends today. The government are reviewing the last three weeks and using the scientific evidence to see if the five tests have been met on Thursday 28/05/2020. We have made the decision that school will not open for reception, year 1 and year 6 pupils on the 01/06/2020. We aim to follow this plan, and ensure all transition is rigorously planned and as safe possible but as previously advised, it may change.
More detailed guidelines will follow and I will keep you all informed.
Below is a brief overview of some of the details.
These points don’t cover all details but hopefully will answer some of your questions.
It is important that we get these decisions right and not rush them. We cannot completely eliminate risk but we can put everything into place to reduce risk, assure staff and parents and make sure our pupils have a safe and educationally productive environment.
I hope this letter answers some of your questions but if you have any questions or queries at all, please email me.
Look after yourselves and stay safe.
Have a great weekend and half term.
