Many of you will have seen the announcement this evening advising against the wider opening of Lancashire schools. We have been working very hard this week and last planning for the phased return of our Year R, 1 and 6 children as of the week beginning 8th June but now this will have to be on hold until we receive further guidance. Please be assured we feel just as frustrated as you about the constant changes as we desperately want to have our children back, but we cannot go against this advice (rock and a hard place anyone?!). 
I have an 8 page letter (yes, you'll need to sit comfortably!) which I was due to send out to you by Friday, detailing all the plans for the phased wider opening; this includes answers to all the questions submitted by parents. One of my tasks now for tomorrow is to edit this letter, removing the dates and times we had in place so I can still share the organisation and information you need to know for when, God-willing, we open more widely.
Take care all.
Information from Lancashire County Council
Our Director of Public Health is advising Lancashire's schools to delay opening to more pupils.
The government says it wants to see primary schools reopen to all children in reception, Year 1 and Year 6 from 1 June.
Currently schools are only open to children of key workers and our valuable children, which is how we describe our most vulnerable children. We carefully assessed the government's five tests to the easing of lockdown restrictions to see how they apply in Lancashire, and have concluded that schools should not reopen to more pupils from next week.
The advice will be reviewed regularly so that schools can reopen to more pupils as soon as it is safe to do so.
