School Re-opening

School Re-opening

As you will be aware Cheshire East made the announcement  that they do not recommend schools within this Local Authority to reopen until the 15th of June at the earliest, a decision they have made based on the context of this area, mirroring some of the advice from other authorities in the North West area. As a result of this announcement the board of Directors for RCSAT met and agreed with the local authorities decision. In light of this this new information our Multi Academy Trust are working together to ensure that we are able to open as safely as we can on the following dates:

Monday 15th June - reception children

Monday 22nd June - year 1 children

Monday 29th June  - year 6 children

I will as always continue to share with you confirmed information once I have it.

I want to, once again, thank you for your patience and understanding. There have been over 40 individual lengthy pieces of guidance for schools to navigate to ensure that their settings are safe and ready for children to return. This is an anxious time for all and I appreciate that schools will interpret the guidance given in different ways. I have taken advice from staff, governors, the trust, the local authority as well as advice from all teaching unions to put together our plan. There will be elements that will work and ones that we will need to change. That is the rationale behind a staggered and phased return to ensure our systems are right and robust.

Please find all relevant information including a guide for children below. Please can I ask that for those children who are returning parents use this resource and further ones which will be added to aid their children with the transition. The mental health and well being of our little people is as always my number one priority.
