School Re-opening to Year 6
From Monday 8th June we will be re-opening the school to our Year 6 cohort as one of the Government’s identified priority groups (along with Nursery, Reception and Year 1) while still continuing to provide our current childcare provision for the children of our key workers who we have continued to remain open for throughout the period of school closures since 23rd March.
We recognise that the decision whether or not you send your child back to school as part of the phased return is an extremely difficult one and that some of you may have some concerns about your child returning to school. We would like to stress that at Chapel End Junior Academy, there is no expectation that parents should choose to send their children to school as part of this phased return should they not wish to. You should give careful consideration before making a decision that is right for you and your family.
During this period, attendance at school will not be monitored in the usual way and parents will not face consequences for non-attendance. Equally, schools will not be held to account for attendance levels.
We have worked hard to put in to place rigorous control measures to ensure the safety of all staff, pupils and parents following a full risk assessment process in line with guidance from the Department for Education. All measures will be kept under constant review and should there be any changes, we will inform parents at the earliest possible opportunity.
Years 3,4 and 5 will continue to receive regularly updated online remote learning during this partial re-opening to Year 6. (see information under ‘home learning’ below)
