Dear parents and carers,
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement that schools should prepare to open to more children from June 1st the Whitefield Academy Trust has been considering what would be the best thing to do.
Directors, CEO and Senior Leaders have studied the guidance for schools in general and special schools in particular and have looked carefully at how we might manage risk if we opened more widely. We have also spoken to parents and staff and consulted with the Local Authority and Union representatives.
Whitefield Schools and Joseph Clarke School will remain closed from the 1st June and will keep the wider opening for primary children under review.
