You will be aware by now of the Prime Minister's announcements yesterday. He stated that a phased re-opening of schools may begin on 1st June for children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 6.
We are waiting for more guidance on this and will keep you informed as much as we can.
What we can promise you though, is that the safety of our children and staff is our first priority. Our schools will reopen only when it is considered safe to do so. We are working with the Local Authority and the teaching unions on robust risk assessments and these will determine how we can operate safely.
In the meantime, please use contact@shortheathfederation.org.uk for any queries you might have.
Take care, stay safe.

BGT watch out - we're coming!
School will remain open next week for children of critical workers, those with an EHC Plan, a social worker and those who could be vulnerable. School continues to risk assess these places.
 
Cobra Club operates from 8 45 - 3.15 daily.
 
If your child is in this week, we will check with you what you need for next week. If your child needs a place for next week, even if you have already told us about this, you need to complete the keyworker form available to download from the home page of our website. You need one for each child. Please return these by 12:00 midday on Wednesday to keyworker@shortheathfederation.org.uk so that we can plan staffing. 
 
Thanks to those of you who are keeping your child at home where at all possible. Thanks to staff who put themselves at risk to come in every day. We are starting to struggle with staffing levels, so need to monitor the situation day by day.
PLEASE NOTE: ALL CHILDREN WILL NEED TO BRING A PACKED LUNCH.
IF YOU ARE ENTITLED TO FREE SCHOOL MEALS THEN A PACKED LUNCH WILL BE PROVIDED -
THERE IS NO HOT MEAL OPTION.
