Dear Families,
 
Happy Friday! I hope you and your extended families are all well. We have had the most wonderful week and it has been brilliant having the majority of our year 6 pupils back in school with us.
 
I did say that if things went well we would look to open to other children. We now feel in a position to do this. From week commencing 22nd June, we will be inviting our year one pupils back. For safety reasons, they will only be in school for two days each week. Year one parents will receive a separate communication about this. Start and finish times as well as breaks will be further staggered to maintain all of the safety measures currently in place.
 
I want to thank you all for your continued support and understanding. These are challenging times and I appreciate that this is a very different way of working for you all. We will continue to do our very best to ensure that Walbottle feels as much like our school as possible, whilst following public heath guidelines to keep us all safe.
 
We are in the process of formulating plans for September. As soon as I have any information to share, I will be in touch. We will be breaking up for the summer holidays as usual. School will be closed over the summer break.
 
With love and best wishes
Mrs Oliver
