As confirmed by the Prime Minister last night the Department for Education are asking education and childcare settings to prepare to open for more children from 1 June. Further guidance setting out more information for early years, schools and colleges is expected this week.
We are working closely with the Local Authority and with the other Special School Heads to ensure that we plan for this to happen in the safest way possible.
At this moment I cannot offer any more details to parents and carers as to what this will mean for Highbury School. I will ensure that you are kept updated as decisions are made. Until then I would ask that you continue as you are and ensure that should you be experiencing specific problems requiring support from school that you contact us.
Can I also remind parents who are bringing their children to school to observe social distancing from each other and with staff. It is very important to ensure the confidence and safety of our staff that you remain at least 2 metres apart
