Coronavirus Update

All children and young people, in all year groups, returned 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 and local 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 keep our schools open.

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 safety in school
