Proposed Phased Re-opening of Rivacre Valley Primary School

As part of national social distancing measures to limit the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), schools have had to limit the numbers of children and young people attending, to ensure that pupils and staff could do so safely.

That is why, since 23 March 2020, education and childcare settings have only been open to priority groups (vulnerable children and children of critical workers).

The Government would now like schools to expand their offer in include more children (Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6).

In order to meet this request the Governing Board and Leadership Team at Rivacre Valley Primary School have developed a plan to safely re-open the school to the identified year groups. The detail of this can be found on the school website. You should also have received an email containing the details of our plan.

Key points:

  • Nursery 2, Reception, Year 1 and year 6: 2 days “in-school” learning and 3 days “home” learning.
  • Vulnerable children and children of critical workers: 5 days “in-school” learning (these groups will be organised into phases, eg. EYFS / KS1 / KS2)

We understand that you may want your child to attend with their class mates (specific year group).

If you are a critical worker / have a vulnerable child and would prefer your child to attend with their specific year group, they will only be able to attend with that group for the 2 days “in-school” learning offer. This is due to the fact that each “in-school” group can not mix with another group.

Please can you let school know which is your preferred option.
