Government guidance for parents and carers on Opening schools to more pupils from 1st June.

Monday 11th May

Update

Following the address by the Prime Minister last night, it was mentioned that schools may be in a position to begin a phased re-opening at the earliest from 1st June for particularly year groups.

With this announcement comes lots of questions that need answers. Schools are awaiting more information to be able to answer these questions.

In the short term, nothing has changed for Staincliffe and we will provide further information in the coming days and weeks once we are able to do so. It is hoped that a newsletter will follow by the end of this week, once there has been more clarity and guidance provided by the government.

In the meantime, our first priority is the safety of everyone in the school community.

Stay safe.
