Return to school - email sent to parents 20th May 2020


Dear Reception families,


We hope this email finds you safe and well. As you know, schools are busy preparing for a possible reopening on 1st June to selected year groups including Reception.  Part of our work behind the scenes includes preparing the attached Social Story which will allow our youngest children to understand their return to school. 


Thank you to parents who have already responded about whether you intend for your child to return to school when it reopens.  If you have let us know that your child will return when schools reopen, please look at the instructions on the first page and begin to share the Social Story together.


We know that this is a personal decision that some families are finding it difficult to make.  Please read the Social Story to help inform your decision making.  If you are yet to respond, please could you confirm your intention about whether your child will or will not return to as soon as possible.  Begin to share the social story with your child if you intend for your child to return to school. 


If you do not reply, please note that school will not expect your child when schools reopen. Further information will be sent to all parents and carers in due course.


Many thanks, and please stay safe.
