Headteacher's update 6

Published on 11/05/20

Dear parent/carer,

Re: Government announcement about school reopening to some year groups

As you will have seen last night, the government has given notice that schools could reopen to Year 10 and Year 12 students, providing them with some time in school before the end of the academic year, if certain conditions have been met. We are waiting to see the detail of this proposal from the Department for Education.

I will be discussing this over the coming days with both school and trust leadership teams and governors/trustees to assess what is possible. There is a lot to consider but I want to reassure you that both student and staff safety will be our overriding priority in these discussions.

As I am sure you appreciate, this is a complex situation. Please be patient with us whilst we take the time to thoroughly investigate the proposals and their implications. I will of course share information with you once I am able to do so. 

In the meantime, I appreciate that the government announcement may cause uncertainty for our students, so we will continue to focus on supporting them with their remote learning and wellbeing. As ever, if you or they have any concerns, please contact our Key Stage Teams in the first instance.

With best wishes,

Mrs Sarah Sims
Head of Silverdale School
