I hope you are all continuing to keep well and stay safe.
Following a virtual meeting with over 41 Headteachers from across Bassetlaw and Nottinghamshire, I am now able to add a small amount of new information to the update I posted earlier this week. This is guidance from the local authority.and the advice that I have been given.
I have been asked to remind you that, we are receiving a lot of this information at the same time as the public. Most of it is extremely complicated and is taking time to unpick and understand.
At this current time, the Governing Body and myself, are waiting to receive more guidance as to how the proposed opening of our school to Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 will work. The local authority is devising new guidance to answer many of the questions leaders and teachers are posing. With this guidance, will come a county standard risk assessment form that we will complete, identifying all the risks that will be present if school is to open. I will update you again,, once these documents are received..
I have asked the staff to send you a few questions that I really would like you to answer if you can please? If you could possibly reply either way, it would give us more understanding of your thoughts moving forward. I am also offering you the opportunity to take part in a Zoom meeting with myself and the Chair of Governors. I will aim to answer any questions you pose, although I repeat, I am still awaiting guidance and answers myself. It would however, be an opportunity for you to voice your concerns or opinions and have your voice heard which I think is vital at this time.
As I have stated in earlier updates, the staff team and myself are extremely grateful for all the hard work you and the children are doing everyday. I know that they are in touch with you regularly and relay this all the time, but they also pass this to me too and as a team, we feel immensely proud to be a part of Rampton Primary School.
Take care, stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all soon.
