School Closure update 11.5.2020

Dear Parents/Carers,

I hope this finds you all keeping well and staying safe during this difficult time. 

May I start by thanking you all for your continued support for your child's education and wellbeing. I have witnessed some truly remarkable pieces of work completed by our children, from super solar systems to rosette rainbows. I have been blown away by the creativity and sheer talents displayed which obviously could not have been achieved without your support and encouragement, so thank you for that. 


This update follows the announcement made by the Prime Minister last night that schools 'may' be opening for pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 from 1 June and I am certain that many of you have spent the day wondering and possibly worrying about what exactly will happen next. Please be aware that the teaching fraternity are notified of these decisions at the same time as the public and therefore formulating a response can take time. I therefore thank you for your patience and understanding at this time. I know at this point that I will not be in a position to answer all the questions you may have or concerns that may be building and I find that incredibly frustrating. I would like nothing more than to have all the answers and be able to reassure you that your child will be safe to return to school at the appropriate time. The health and safety of our children and staff will always be my main priority. 


At this moment, I am waiting to receive more information from the Government and Nottinghamshire County Council as to what these new pieces of information mean to our pupils and our school. I will of course, provide more information as soon as I can in the coming days and weeks. 


The provision to support emergency childcare issues, remains available at Tuxford Academy. Please do not hesitate to email me should this need arise. (


Should you wish to discuss this with me further, please do not hesitate to contact me via my email address, and I will be happy to arrange a time to talk.


Please take care and stay safe and I look forward to seeing you all soon.


Best wishes,

Helen Roberts
