Welcome to Hurst Green Primary School and Nursery
Living, loving and learning with God
As you are aware the government have asked all schools to prepare to open on the 1st June for the children of keyworkers, vulnerable groups and children in nursery, reception and Years 1 and 6. We understand that many of you have concerns, hopefully the letter sent out to you today (Monday 18th May) will answer any questions you may have had. If you haven’t had a chance to read it please click here.
Our aim is to make the school as safe as possible for both children and staff and to do this we have had to make many changes to the organisation of the school day. These include different start and finish times as well as the organisation of classes. As stated in the letter, if the government guidelines change and this has an effect on what we have put in place we will let you know.
We really appreciate the messages we have received showing your support during this time. If you have concerns and would like to talk to me please email the office and I will call you as soon as I can.
We will still provide home learning for children who are not in school from 1st June but as teachers are teaching full time they may not be able to answer your questions as quickly as they have whilst the school has been closed. As stated in the letter Mrs Stelfox will be taking over the home learning from 1st June for Maple class.
If your child is one of the above groups and you would like your child to come back to school on 1st June please email the school office at email@example.com.
I know that many of you are anxious to know when children in years 2, 3, 4 and 5 will be returning to school. We have not yet been made aware of when or how this will happen but as soon as this is announced we will let you know.
Take care and stay safe
