Plans for the re-opening of school from June 2nd 2020

Following the government’s announcement that they may be opening schools from the 1st June, we now have a much clearer idea as to how we will open Kenilworth School further, to include the children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 alongside the current provision for key worker parents and vulnerable children.

We would love nothing more than to be able to open the school to all children and welcome all of our families back into our school community.  However, as we know the scientific evidence is not strong enough to enable us to do this yet. Therefore, it is with great regret that we are unable welcome back nursery at this time. This decision was taken with careful consideration and a thorough risk assessment.  Nursery parents will be receiving a separate letter clarifying their position.

For detailed information on how school will look please click here: Key Information For Returning To School. We apologise that this is a very long letter, but please read the information carefully, as it outlines safety measures and what school will be like and when groups will be welcomed back.  These details will hopefully help you to make an informed decision about whether or not you wish your child to return to school.  Please be assured that we will support you and your family whatever you decide.

The measures have been approved by the governors. They may change slightly going forward, depending on the needs of the children and staff.  We are getting guidance sporadically from the government and if this changes, there may need to be slight adjustments to provision.

Please also be aware that, like all schools, we have some limitations to what we can provide because we have staff who are unable to come in, and availability of space for groups (bubbles) of children and adults.

If we are expecting your child to return, we have sent out the information telling them which groups they will be in and how to enter school.  If you have not received this guide we will not be expecting your child to return to school at this time and for safeguarding reasons will not be able to admit your child if they arrive at school.

If you would like your child to return to school and have not received this guide, please email closuresupport@kenilworth.herts.sch.uk and state your child’s name and year group.  If your child is in years 2, 3, 4 or 5 we will also need to know your key worker role in order for your child to access the provision.

If you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us via  closuresupport@kenilworth.herts.sch.uk  and will do our best to help you. All of the staff at Kenilworth are committed to supporting our children and families through this difficult time.
