Dear Parents / Carers,
A happy new year to you all and we hope you have been able to enjoy the Christmas period safely. As you will be aware, Cheshire was placed in Tier 4 at midnight on 30th December. All the initial guidance was for mainstream schools and colleges and we were told to wait for specific Special School guidance which was published yesterday evening (31st December). We have been waiting for this guidance before contacting you so we could provide accurate advice and avoid any confusion. This full guidance is available on the DfE website if anyone wishes to read it but the main points are highlighted below:
We appreciate many of you will be very concerned about the recent rise in cases and having had a number of positive cases in school at the start of December (although due to our bubble system, seven classes remained unaffected). We can assure you that we have reviewed all guidance and risk assessments and are doing everything possible to keep everyone as safe as possible. Our risk assessment has been continually reviewed and was praised by the Local Authority’s Health & Safety team. Our bubble system remains in place as do all other measures and if you wish to see a copy of our risk assessment, this can be obtained by emailing school (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please be aware that guidance is changing constantly, and we will update you if and when we receive information. We will continue to use email and text messages to provide updates or if circumstances change quickly as we do not have the capacity to phone all families.
Please be assured that our dedicated staff team are looking forward to welcoming your child back from Monday 4th and that despite ongoing challenges and pressures, there has been some amazing work happening in school. We value your ongoing support during this difficult time and look forward to a brighter 2021.
