Dear Parents/Carers,


Returning to school in September

I am writing to you today to share the school’s plans for return in September. I am hoping that this will alleviate any concerns and answer any questions you may have. The Ashwicken team have spent considerable time formulating a ‘draft' plan for welcoming all children back into school, but it is important to remember that September is a long way away. So much can happen between now and then and we must be flexible and reactive to any developing situations. That means that these plans may well be changed before the children return in September. If that is the case, we will contact you and inform you of any changes we make (this may be over the summer holidays).

It is hard for us to nail down concrete plans at this moment in time as the guidance from the government, and the data around infection rates, changes so frequently.


It is vital that parents stick to the timings issued within this guidance. We need to ensure all pupils have a socially distanced safe school to enter and leave from each day. We need parents cooperation with this.


As I have said previously, the reopening of our school has been very successful and that is down to the hard work of our amazing staff, the relentless planning we conduct before every decision is made and because of your patience and support.


You have supported and encouraged us when we needed it most and I am eternally grateful for that! This safe, measured and calculated approach, that has served us well so far, will be continued as we more forward. We will not act with haste and every decision will be made with your child’s best interests at heart.


I cannot wait for the children to return to school, we have all missed them so much! From everyone at Ashwicken Primary School, have an amazing and relaxing summer holidays.


Yours sincerely,

Sophie Dickson
