We are seeking the views of parents and carers of children in Nursery, Reception, Years 1 and 6, as well as 'Key Worker' parents and carers. Please complete this online survey by Wednesday 20th May.
As you may be aware, the UK Government recently announced that they wish to implement a phased reopening of schools for key children from the 1st June 2020. This is part of the government’s conditional plan, which it says will remain under regular review. This applies to Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 children, as well as children of key workers and vulnerable groups.
We are fully aware that the decision to potentially send your child back to school is a daunting one, however we want to take this opportunity to assure you that we will be following the strict guidance set out by the UK Government and the Royal Borough of Greenwich. This does, obviously pose a number of challenges, however more information on how we will open will be sent out to parents and carers once final detailed guidance is given to us by the Royal Borough of Greenwich.
As you can appreciate the reopening of the school, following all the health and safety guidance for pupils and staff is a huge undertaking, so in order for us to plan as effectively as possible, the first stage of this is to seek the views of our parents and carers. Whilst the Government is strongly encouraging children in the formerly mentioned groups to attend school, it is worth pointing out that parents will not be fined for non-attendance at this time. As a school, we also aim to continue providing remote learning for any children remaining offsite. This will develop and we will look to improve this experience further for the future.
Below you will find weblinks to our parent and carers survey. We understandably, need definite numbers to work with, so we regret that there will not be ‘maybe’ options in the survey. The options on the survey will be for school hours only, as we will be unable to run any after school or breakfast clubs at this time. It is important that you have all the information you need before making a decision to send your child back to school. With this in mind, before completing the survey, we would strongly recommend that parents and carers read the Government guidance for parents that was published this week. The full guidance from the Government can be found by clicking here.
The survey for your child(ren) can be found below. We ask that only parents of children in the listed classes complete this survey, and please complete one survey per child (if there are siblings attending our school).
The survey is made up of 10 short questions. 4 questions require an answer, and 6 questions are optional. Answers will be used to provide feedback for future school planning. Please note, if you have additional children in key classes, please could you complete a separate survey for each child. Surveys and further information can be found here. Please complete your survey by 3pm on Wednesday 20th May, in order to help us effectively plan for the future opening of our school.
We appreciate your time in completing this survey, and we thank our school community once again for it's continued support and understanding.
