I am pleased to confirm Slingsby School will re-open to priority groups on Monday 8th June 2020 following the Covid-19 lockdown. In addition to the drawing up of a plan being an impossible puzzle with the ever changing advice, we have taken account of all the information we have been given and acted in line with our current level of readiness.

There are many new ‘normals’ to navigate and we are all learning all the time. Can I thank everyone for their support and the various suggestions which have supported us throughout this time. We have listened to all of them and have tried to be as flexible as possible. 

Thank you too for understanding the complexities of handling something such as this, which you really would not expect to have to plan for in your career!

Everyone who is returning has received a confirmation of their place and regrettably we are unable to take any more children at this time due to the social distancing rules, health & safety and staffing. We will continue to keep all our families informed with regard to the next phase of re-opening when the Government and Local Authority advise this is possible and we have further assessed the options.

The safety of our school community continues to be our priority and we remain positive and hopeful that one day soon it will be safe for our whole school family to be reunited! In the meantime, home learning packs continue to be provided for all year groups on our website under the “In the Event of School Closure” tab and updates provided by email and the Teachers2 Parents App.

Please continue to adhere to the Government Coronavirus Guidelines and stay safe.

With very best wishes

Mrs Metcalfe

Head Teacher

We are all guided by the Slingsby Values for Life: Respect, Honesty, Resilience, Expectations and Caring for Others
