Gilberts Return - Update

Dear Parents / Carers,


Thank you for your patience as we continue to ready our school for the return of some children.


Parents who responded YES to our survey (Update 27th May) have now received a text to confirm their child’s place for next week.


For those who responded NO, thank you so much for doing so. 


For those who did not respond, this was collated as a NO for our returning numbers (Update 27th May). If you wish for your child to return, please contact the school to discuss this. We will do our upmost to facilitate your request but we may have to prioritise as per the DFE guidance in staffing, legal ratios and room requirements.


As I have stated previously, a return to school will not be the normal Gilbert’s we are used to and we will not operate in our normal way either. 


We will not be opening everyday and children’s start and end times will be staggered to support social distancing.


To support this, we have created a ‘Parent’s Guide to Returning’ which hopefully answers many of your questions. It also gives you the staff for your child’s year group bubble and the start and finish times too.


This Guide can be found in the 'Parents' section of our website and under the 'Support during Covid-19 Section'  


This guide has a lot of information, so please take the time to read it.  If you have any other queries, please get in touch.


Thank you,


Joanne Mappin
