Letter to Parents of children due to start in Reception
15th September 2020
I am writing to let you know that your child will not be able to start their Reception class as planned. Unfortunately, we have had confirmed cases of Covid-19 in the Early Years unit and have had to close this part of the school. That means that all staff who work in Reception have to self-isolate for the next 14 days.
We are really sorry to have to share this news with you. We know how much all your children will have been looking forward to their first day and how important this day is to you and them. However, without their teachers in school, we cannot start as planned and will need to delay their start date .
If your child was due to start school tomorrow, Wednesday 16/09/20, their start date has now been moved to Monday 28th September. If their start date was Tuesday 22/09/20, their start date will now be Wednesday 30th September.
Your class teacher will call you during the week and hopefully will be able to reassure your child that they will be starting school very soon.
We are hugely disappointed that we have to do this. Staff were all really looking forward to welcoming in all our new children.
We will keep you up to date if anything changes. Please do keep a lookout on our school website – if things change, we will update our website.
Thank you for your support and understanding during this very challenging time
