Dear Parents/ Guardians,
We are delighted to be welcoming all our students back to school from 19 April 2021.
Our top priority will remain protecting children, staff and families and we will do everything possible to minimise risk and ensure a safe and controlled return to the classroom for all. We will continue to ask all our students and staff to wear face coverings inside school buildings, including in the classroom unless they are exempt from doing so and encouraging all to continue following the ‘hands, face, space’ motto whenever possible.
We will focus on ensuring students:
- Feel safe, secure and happy in school.
- Catch up with work they have missed and feel confident in the process.
- Feel prepared for the next stage in their education/ employment.
- Feel part of a positive community.
We have carried out a comprehensive risk assessment, specific to Haygrove School to help us plan for increasing the numbers of staff and students on the school site. Our Risk Assessment and Operational Plan can be viewed here. A letter for all parents has been sent home via email, and can also be viewed here.
Haygrove students, staff and parents have shown huge amounts of resilience, responsibility and respect throughout this pandemic and have returned to school with great enthusiasm and passion for learning. I would like to thank everyone for showing true leadership and collegiate spirit. We are so proud of our staff and children in maintaining a comprehensive educational offer under these unprecedented and challenging circumstances.
Please stay safe.
Mr A Reid, Headteacher Mrs K M Canham, Executive Headteacher
