Preparing for the wider opening of schools

All children and young people, in all year groups, will return to school full time from the beginning of the autumn term.The government has undertaken a detailed risk assessment, based on modelling, that allows pupils to return, as long as certain measures are put in place.

The schools within the Brigshaw Learning Partnership are doing everything they can to  safely manage this. As a trust, The Brigshaw Learning Partnership will follow government guidance as fully as we can, focusing most importantly on their overriding instruction to ‘stay safe’. The BLP Board of Directors is fully committed to supporting our school leaders and local governing bodies in prioritising safety in their decisions on how to reopen our schools.

Re-opening a school is a decision which is taken by the BLP Board in consultation with BLP schools. Any decision made by the BLP Board will  take into account the government guidance and applying it to the school’s individual context. Schools will only invite cohorts of pupils back when the assessment of the risk is that it can be done as safely as is practicable and following government advice. 

Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s school if you would like to discuss your child’s provision further or have any questions – it is critically important that you feel comfortable with your child’s safe return to education in school.

Parents will not be fined for non-attendance at this time.
