Dear Parents,


I hope you and your families are safe and well.    


Can you believe it is March already?! Spring is on its way, and it is lovely to see the daffodils and crocuses poking their way through the soil ready to bring much needed colour to the ground! We are really looking forward to welcoming the children back to next Monday, 8 March!


We are excited for their return, and cannot wait to see the children join their class bubbles once again!  I understand that some of you may be feeling anxious, but I would like to reassure you all that your child's safety, and the safety of the school staff is something I take very seriously. As a school we are following all of the procedures and guidance that is available to us to make sure that the children's return to school is as safe and secure as possible.


Please read the documents below to see all of the information you need to ensure a safe return for all.  The letter also has a reminder of the start and finish times for each class, we will continue with the staggered system to enable us to limit the amount of parents and children moving around the grounds and to maintain social distancing across the site.


There is a separate attachment regarding attendance, including the procedures to follow if your child, or anyone in your household, has symptoms of Covid-19, and updated information regarding quarantining after returning to the UK from abroad, as it is now a Government requirement to get a Covid test on Day 2 and Day 8 of quarantine, and to supply those results to the school.


We will still have the designated gates and one-way systems in place as you drop off and collect your children, and we do expect all adults to wear a face covering while they are within the school grounds. Although the transmission of Covid-19 is lower than it was in January when we closed, the rates are still higher than average in Luton and we must all continue to do what we can to prevent the spread.


In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns regarding your child's return to school, please do not hesitate to contact us. If we don't know about it we cannot help!


See you all on Monday!


Kind regards

Mrs Kang
