Re: Update 4 June 2020 Covid-19

I am writing to give you an update on our plans for a reopening of school to pupils in Years 10 and 12; as you are aware, we have remained open for the last eleven weeks for children of key workers, those with an EHCP and those who may be vulnerable. In addition, I wish to clarify a number of points in relation to the increased pressure of pupils returning to school as more parents are returning to work and in relation to the most recently published advice and guidance from the Department for Education (DfE).
