Dear Parents and Carers,


Following the Government announcements yesterday evening and today regarding the possibility of schools returning from 1st June for certain year groups, I wanted to reassure you on a number of points.


  1. Firstly, the safety of all our pupils is of the utmost importance to us and all decisions will be taken in the best interests of all our children and families.
  2. Our academies remain committed to enabling those workers, critical to the response to coronavirus, to attend their workplace over the coming weeks and months – and this will continue even when we open our doors to additional year groups.
  3. All DoWMAT academies will listen carefully to the guidance we receive from the Local Authority, the Diocesan Education Team and the Department for Education.  The DfE has yet to issue its detailed guidance - we expect it in the next few days.
  4. We will keep you informed and provide you with additional information in the comings days and weeks about what this means for your school. 

This has been a difficult time for us all and I wanted to say a big thank you from the DoWMAT team and all of our academies for your support since the closure of schools to the vast majority of children, on the 20th March.


Best Regards,

Claire Davies
