To all Parents and Carers in our schools,

Many thanks to you all for all of your hard work and your efforts to support our schools this term so far. This continues to be appreciated by our schools. 

As you know the Government have said that all schools in England will open to all pupils from the 8th March 2021 and I am pleased to let you know that all of the 7 schools in the Orchard Community Trust are now open for all pupils to attend and each school will have let you know the arrangements for your child to attend school from the 8th March 2021 and will also have informed you of their policy and arrangements for remote learning at home, should your child(ren) have to self-isolate at any point from the 8th March 2021.

All of the schools will, as before, continue to follow the latest Government and public health guidance very carefully and have detailed plans and risk assessments in place to ensure that we can keep children, staff and parents as safe as we possibly can. Once again, you may well see some new rules and arrangements in place for you and your children when they come back to school on the 8th March 2021. These are all in place to continue to ensure we all stay safe and well.

Please ensure that you read all letters and information sent to parents and carers regarding attendance at school and remote learning at home. This will help schools to ensure that communications are clear and that things run as smoothly as possible.

Should you have any concerns regarding the situation with your child and/or the school, then please do not hesitate to contact the school to discuss this with them.

The Trust will keep the information on its website updated to ensure that parents are well informed regarding our schools.

As before, many thanks for all of your patience and support during this challenging period.

Yours sincerely,

Mr Rob Johnstone
Senior Executive Leader
Orchard Community Trust (MAT)
