Primary School Children 03

UPDATE:

The Prime Minister's announcement on Monday 4th January means that all three village schools will not open as anticipated in the article below. They will remain closed at least until 15th February 2021. We will update this information as and when we receive further news

........................

The most recent Government announcement confirmed that primary schools in Buckinghamshire are set to open as normal this week, so all Haddenham pupils will return as planned on Tuesday 5th January.

Our Head Teachers are pleased that they are able to start our school term as normal but recognise that there are bound to be some increased levels of anxiety amongst some parents and guardians, given the surge of cases across the Aylesbury Vale area as well as Buckinghamshire Council having declared a major incident a few days ago. 

The Head Teachers are keen to offer reassurance that they will be reviewing their risk assessments in light of the latest guidance and will keep the Haddenham community informed of any changes.

In a letter to parents and guardians, the Head Teachers have said:

"Please can we remind all parents to wear a mask or face covering when near or on the school site (unless you have a medical exemption). You will not be permitted entry if you do not have a face covering with you at drop off or collection times.

May we also take this opportunity to remind you that, in accordance with Government guidance to schools, we are unable to accept visitors on site without an appointment.

Any meetings between parent/carers and members of school staff will continue to be held online /via video conferencing for the foreseeable future. 

The reality is that this new strain of the virus is not just dangerous for vulnerable and elderly people but also has the potential for making young people unwell too. We all have to do our bit to keep our pupils, staff and their family members safe and we thank you in advance for your support with doing this.

The three Haddenham Head teachers are committed to a shared approach across all three village schools."
