We understand that sending your children to school in the current circumstances can be very worrying. We would like to reassure you that both New Mill Schools and Learning Accord MAT have taken the guidance issued by the Government very seriously; the safety of all pupils and staff is paramount in any of our decision making.
Our schools will be open to all pupils from Tuesday 8th September. Please note that this is a change from the original start date, as Monday has now been changed to a day for staff to receive training prior to the children returning to school, in line with government guidance.
ALL children will be expected back in September. Non-attendance will be addressed in line with the school attendance policy. There will be no limit to the size of the classes. The children will be in their normal classes, with their normal class teacher. We will, of course, work with parents who have specific circumstances to help them to access school safely and successfully.
School will NOT be the same as it was prior to lockdown and there will still be restrictions in place. Living with Covid means us all having to change our behaviour and do things differently.
