A Message from Mrs McKay

Dear parents and carers

This booklet is being shared to support the smooth transition back to our school building from the 12th of August 2020. We know that you will have many questions about what this will look like and I hope that this document will provide you with answers to these questions.

Whilst we know that some of the following will be different to what we have done in the past, every process has been developed in response to the central guiding principle that we want our children to be safe and happy at school.

Although this document seems very procedural, we can assure you that we will be vigilant in ensuring compliance with all the requirements and actions detailed in supporting guidance and risk assessment. We will ensure a nurturing ethos and be responsive to your child’s social and emotional wellbeing. We want our children to be positive about being in school and as such we will share these processes and expectations so that children understand the need for them without becoming overly anxious or concerned about ‘getting it wrong’.

These arrangements will only be in place for as long as is required and will be reviewed on an ongoing basis. Where we discover that something is not quite working, we will find a solution and communicate that with our children and with you.

Kindest regards

Pauline McKay
