From the 2nd of June Worple will re-open to our vulnerable children only as identified in the government’s information for all schools. This group of children will be taught in what the government call a ‘bubble’, with an allocated group of staff and children staying together, social distancing, throughout the school day. Parents of children eligible for this provision will be contacted separately about this. Provision will run weekly from Monday-Thursday.
From the week beginning the 8th of June, we do intend to re-open the school to Year 1 and Year 6 only. The plan currently is for us to split each year group into two and deliver provision to children based on a two week rota, with each group spending a week in school followed by a week at home, continuing with home learning. The ‘in-school provision’ will run from Monday-Thursday. The children will not be expected to be in school on Fridays. Fridays will allow all teachers involved in delivering in-school provision the chance to continue to work on google classroom so that the children are not further disadvantaged on the weeks that they are not in school.
At the moment the school is not in a position to be able to offer provision to any other year groups. Again this may change, and be reviewed over the next half term in line with any national changes or further risk assessment work being carried out. For those children who are not in an eligible year group or do not meet the criteria, we will continue to provide home learning opportunites on Google Classroom.
