13th May 2020, 12.46 - Message from the Executive Head Teacher

Dear Families,


On behalf of all the staff at Lawnswood Campus I hope you and your families continue to be safe and well during this very challenging time.


I have been waiting for the Prime Minister’s announcement in order to understand the Government’s strategy for the reopening of schools. I am sure that you have more questions than answers but we are now awaiting further guidance from the Department of Education over the next few weeks.


We need to have time to review this and agree next steps with our Heads of Centres before we can give you any further information. Please be assured that the safety of our young people and staff are paramount and we will be ensuring this is a priority in our planning. We will continue to provide and support learning packs for home as well as a provision for the children of key workers and those requiring additional support in our schools each day.


I know that at this stage we need to continue to follow all the national guidance, keep everyone safe and we encourage you to continue to support your child in understanding the importance of 2m social distancing and regular handwashing.


I will be in touch again in a few weeks.


Yours sincerely,


Rachael Brown

Executive Headteacher
