Dear Parents,


We hope you are all continuing to keep safe and well.


After finalising our planning and preparation for the school to reopen for EYFS, year 6 and year 1  groups from the 1st June we have been informed that Derbyshire Schools are delaying their opening till at least the 8th June.


As a school we felt ready to welcome our children back however our Trust has rightly determined that we cannot open without consensus at least across the county schools so we will abide by this decision. 


We know this is disheartening and confusing but we are only able to react to the guidance as it happens-this was communicated to us this morning.


We will keep our plans for further groups to reopen and implement this when we are told to do so. Until that point we will continue to open for our allocated key workers.


As the Government has suggested it will give more information on the 28th May as to school's reopening, I ask that parents are patient with our planning process as we are responding as quickly and efficiently as we can at this time. 


I have placed a letter from our CEO under the parent's tab.


Other news.

Next week is Whit week and therefore there will be no home learning set or zoom meetings taking place. If you have an enquiry please email me on as I will check these throughout each day. Any urgent safeguarding issues should be done through dojo for an immediate response, the teachers are not required to respond to other dojos throughout this week.


Free School Meal vouchers

If you have been in receipt of these vouchers you will receive vouchers next week but these are for the week commencing the 1st June and not the half term holiday. We have been advised that the Government are no longer funding FSM vouchers over holiday periods.


Thank you for your continued support, take care.
