School Opening 5th January 2021
Dear Parents and Carers,
School will be open for children on Tuesday 5th January 2021 as planned. Although many people are anxious about schools reopening, staff included, West Park staff believe that if school is open it is their duty to be there and do all that they can to maintain children’s education.
I know that there are some parents who are choosing not to send their children and I respect their decision to do so. I will be seeking clarification from the DFE around where we stand with recording pupil absence should parents do this. If this is your decision, I politely ask that you notify us as soon as possible.
I want to assure you we are working hard to ensure that we provide as safe environment as possible and reiterate that children’s welfare is at the heart of all out decision making.
