Statement from the Headteacher and Chair of Governors


The Headteacher and Chair of Governors have agreed that the school has made appropriate preparations that will allow the school to continue to be open for Critical Workers and Vulnerable children from 1st June 2020. 

The school will not re-open to the key year groups of Nursery, UFS, Year 1 and Year 6 until the Headteacher and the Chair of Governors are satisfied that the school is able to increase its capacity beyond the approximate number of 80 Critical Workers and Vulnerable children due in school on 1st June 2020. 

The Headteacher and Chair of Governors are taking a cautious approach to the re-opening taking into account the views of staff, Wakefield Council, the teaching unions and other stakeholders.

Any reopening beyond Critical Workers and Vulnerable pupils, will be phased, one year group at a time. 

Should there be any changes in the position of the Government and any significant advice from the Local Authority then the Headteacher and Chair of Governors along with the Senior Leadership Team will have further consultations.
