Further update from Ms Shahjahan
I was hoping to write to you this week on the plan of reopening of Year 6, Reception and Year 1. However, with the subsequent announcement on Monday and then publications of documents, which have been further updated throughout the week, our position remains clear on the return of selected year groups. However, we are unclear at the current time on how we will implement all of the recommendations.
I am in regular contact with Merton Local Authority and other local head teachers; we are waiting for additional guidance before we can make any firm plans for the children’s return. As you know from various media news items, the teaching and support staff unions have been in further consultation with the DfE and are meeting again today.
I would like to thank you for your continued support and efforts with home learning. I hope you are all keeping safe and staying healthy and realise how difficult this lockdown period has been for many of our families. Your child’s safety and wellbeing will always be the key priority, so please do get in touch if you have any concerns. If you have any queries about any work set by teachers please email the relevant year group.
Ms R Shahjahan.
