Dear Parents/Carers

Firstly, I would like to thank everyone within our Elm Grove community for their continued support and co-operation over what has been a challenging and difficult period for everyone.

I know that you will have many questions about what school will look like for children returning and I am hopeful that the Return to School Plan and rationale document provides you with those answers.  

We have also prepared a Returning to School story for children to help prepare them a little more for what school will look like.  There are also some short accompanying videos which may help further illustrate this.

I recognise that there may be many parents and children who will be disappointed that they are not able, at this time, to return to school.  However, as I am sure you will appreciate, we must adhere to the directives that are given to us by the Government, the Department for Education and West Sussex County Council.  

I also acknowledge that there are some parents who feel that information has not been forthcoming or timely and for this I apologise.  The safety of your children is, and remains, my highest priority and I have carefully and conscientiously had to consider all the risks and issues that may arise over the coming weeks.  This has taken some time. 

Whilst not necessarily the news that some of you have been waiting for, I hope this information reassures you as to the steps that the school has undertaken for the wider re-opening of schools.  However, if you do have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me and I will be happy to answer these.

Kindest regards

Mrs Toon
