The main Department for Education document has been updated with the following:
‘In the week commencing 22 February, the Government will publish a plan for taking the country out of lockdown. Our aim will be to set out a gradual and phased approach towards easing the restrictions in a sustainable way, guided by the principles we have observed throughout the pandemic, beginning with the most important principle of all: that re-opening schools must be our national priority. We have committed to providing schools, parents and young people with a minimum of two weeks’ notice for this return to on-site provision. Additional pupils and students will therefore return to on-site education on 8 March 2021 at the earliest.’
As a school, we are hoping that we re-open fully on 8th March, in the meantime we will keep you updated as soon as we hear more ourselves.
