Monday 6th July
I hope you are all safe and well.
The Government released guidance on Thursday to inform schools about September arrangements, so we can finally start to make some plans for your child starting with us. We have outlined a plan of action and a letter will be sent to you detailing this over the next week.
Unfortunately, we are still unable to invite parent's into school for a welcome meeting due to the social distancing/gathering guidance, but you will be able to attend in small groups, with your child in September.
The latest guidance states that children are able to return to school as a full class in September, forming a class 'bubble'. As the children have not had the chance to go through any induction visits due to Covid-19, they will be able to do this in September, starting part-time and building up to full session, with the flexibility for a longer part-time option for any children who are struggling to settle. This would be arranged with individual parents. The letter will give you exact information of times and dates.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me on head@whitefield-inf,lancs.sch.uk
I look forward to finally meeting you all VERY soon!
Mrs Mason (headteaher)
A very warm welcome to Whitefield Infant School and Nursery!
We are delighted that you will become part of our Whitefield family from September 2020. We can't wait to meet you all!
We will be writing to you very soon with some information regarding the induction process and what will happen next.
We will be making plans for stay-and-play sessions and a parents' information meeting, however they will be dependent upon the Government decisions regarding schools re-opening and social distancing advise. If they are not possible, we will make alternative plans towards the end of term, to ensure you child's transition is as smooth as possible.
We will use this page to keep in touch and keep you updated.
