Gilberts Update - Government Plans cancelled for ALL return

Dear Parents / Carers,


I hope that you are all well and continuing to all stay safe.


As you know we partially returned to school on Monday with some of our Nursery, Reception and Year 1 children. This is going well and the ‘bubbles’ of children are adapting brilliantly to the changes we have introduced.  It is the grown-ups at Gilberts who have found it the most difficult, myself included!


For the majority of our children who are continuing to stay at home, thank you.  We are continuing  to support you all with our Gilbert’s @home programme. The only change to this is that the whole week will be posted instead of one day at a time.   


I am sure most of you will have also heard yesterday that the Government have changed their plans for all Primary School children to return to school  for one month before the summer holidays. 


We can only assume that they have realised that this would have been impossible, as most schools do not have enough classrooms or staff .


We are now waiting for further information regarding alternative plans and will of course keep you updated, as and when, further information becomes available.


Thank you for your continued support,


Joanne  Mappin
