‘Aiming Higher’

Prime Minister’s announcement this evening - our response

I am sure you will have been listening to the announcement from Boris Johnson this evening and will have heard the changes the government have planned, including the plan for primary schools from 1st June.  Just like you, we do not receive any prior warning or information about any changes to the lockdown.  Please be assured, as soon as we have more detailed information from the government, we will communicate any plans with you directly.  

I thank you wholeheartedly for the feedback you have given so far in the parents/carers survey.  Your responses, alongside those of our staff and governors, will be fully considered as we follow government expectations to reopen to specific year groups, with the wellbeing, health and safety of children, staff and families at the heart of every decision we make.  I will share a summary of the responses next week.


Until we receive detailed information from the government and Department for Education, it will be difficult to answer particular questions you may have with any certainty.  However, if you do have any questions linked to your child or your own personal circumstances please feel free to email them to and we will answer them as quickly as we can. 

I thank each and every one of you again for your support throughout this challenging time.  We will get through this together.
