We’ve today received this update from the school:
On 20th March 2020 Slingsby School closed in accordance with the Government advice due to COVID-19 and since then all the children have been provided with Home Learning Packs on a weekly basis. On Monday 8th June the school re-opened its doors to priority groups and Head Teacher Mrs Metcalfe and her team have been working hard to ensure new systems are in place to maintain the safety of the children, staff and whole community. You will notice that there are 2 metre markers for parents to follow outside school and there is a one way system for entrances and exits. Inside, the children are a safe 2m apart and are split into small groups with staggered play times and regular hand washing. There are many new ‘normals’ to navigate and we are all learning all the time!
The safety of our community is our priority and we remain positive and hopeful that in September it will be safe for our whole school family to be reunited.
