Thank you for your support during these unprecedented times. We are aware that many parents are anxious about the phased return to school for children in EYFS, Year 1 and Year 6, and what that will look like at Bay Primary School. You may have seen in the press that the East Riding Of Yorkshire Council are advising schools to plan for a phased re-opening from the 8th June 2020 at the earliest. https://www.hulldailymail.co.uk/news/education/east-riding-schools-reopen-june-4150936
This is very much dependent on the announcement by the Government on the 28th May and the 5 key tests being met in a local context.
We are currently devising a plan for this to happen safely, which obviously takes a great deal of time, consultation and consideration. May I assure you that the health and safety of our staff, children, parents, carers and wider community is of paramount importance in any decision making.
I will be sending further information out to our families as soon as I can by email, text and on the school website.
Please take care and stay safe, Mrs Gee
East Riding of Yorkshire Council Update 11th May 2020
"Following the Prime Ministers announcement on Sunday 10th May, schools in the East Riding will remain closed to the majority of students.
Schools will continue to operate to provide childcare for a limited number of children whose parents or carers are critical key-workers, children with an Education Health Care Plan who cannot be safely cared for at home and vulnerable children with an assigned social worker.
Many parents working in critical sectors are able to ensure their child is kept at home. Every child who can be safely cared for at home, should be.
The Prime Minister outlined that some pupils may be able to return to school in the forthcoming weeks and months, but these details have not yet been confirmed and are conditional on the 'R' rate continuing to decline.
We are waiting to receive guidance from the Government to provide the detail behind what the Prime Minister said in relation to schools, education and childcare. Once we receive this information we will need some time to enable us to understand what this means for schools, pupils and families in more detail before publishing anything further.
The Council’s Children’s Services teams will continue to work with schools and the Trade Unions to consider the implications and practicalities of how they can reopen safely for the children identified by government. We would like to reassure you that the Councils first priority is supporting pupils, families, schools, staff and the wider community to stay safe.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our teachers and school staff for their dedication, parents and carers for supporting young people through this difficult time and a big thank you to pupils for embracing the changes they have been faced with in such a positive way."
