Plans for the gradual re-opening of St Vincent's Catholic Primary School to wider groups of children

The information below outlines measures being put in place at St Vincent’s Catholic Primary School to reduce the risk of the transmission of COVID-19, so that you can decide what is right for your children and family, with the assurance that there will be no fine or other action taken should you decide that you child is not yet returning to school.


Plans for reopening our school to wider groups of children are in line with guidance from the Department for Education (DfE) and Local Authority. This plan is subject to confirmation that the conditions set out by the Government have been met, which we anticipate will happen on Thursday 28th May, and following this remains subject to change dependant on ongoing review of circumstances / Government and Local Authority updates.

A full plan and guidance document for Staff and Governors will be available on request, should fuller details be required. This document will be updated once the second parent/carer survey of Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 children has been completed. 
A full risk assessment has been completed, shared and consulted with Staff and Governors.
The risk assessment is currently with the Local Authority, awaiting review by the Chief Executive and Risk and Resilience Team. Once this document has been reviewed, it will be published.
