Update: 29 May 2020

The Greenshaw Learning Trust continues to follow the guidance set out by the Government, Public Health England and Department for Education (DfE).  Our schools are currently open to vulnerable children and children of critical workers, regardless of the year group they are in.

The Government confirmed on 28 May 2020 that children in nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 are able to return to school in smaller sizes from 1 June 2020.  Our schools have been working hard to ensure the schools meet the new guidance set by the DfE, to welcome the identified year groups to return to school. Our primary schools are communicating directly with their school communities to advise them of the phased reopening. For further information please visit the individual schools’ website, which can be found here.

The Government has confirmed that from 15 June 2020 secondary schools can offer face-to-face support to supplement the remote education for Year 10 and Year 12 students.  The DfE has advised that they do not expect Year 10 and 12 students to return to school on a full-time basis at this stage.  Our secondary schools are considering how this will work and will shortly communicate the plans to provide face-to-face support to these identified students. 

The Trust remains fully committed to continuous learning for our students and our schools’ students have been given access to virtual learning resources or packs to take home.  If parents, carers, or students have any questions regarding home learning access or resources please contact your school directly.
