Wider school opening from 1st June
Since 23rd March, Mossgate has remained open only to a priority group of children – those who have a parent who is a critical worker and vulnerable children (EHC plan or social worker involvement). From the 1st June, the Government has asked schools to welcome back children in key transition years (Reception, Y1 and Y6) alongside priority groups. However, Lancashire County Council has advised schools (Wednesday 27th May) not to open to children in Reception, Y1 and Y6 unless they have parents who are critical workers or the child has been identified as being 'vulnerable'.
Please note that children of critical workers, and vulnerable children who are already eligible, will continue to be offered a place from the 1st June, regardless of the year group they are in. The definition of critical workers remains unchanged.
Children can only attend when a place has been confirmed by school.
Parents will receive a text stating their teacher and classroom.
We plan to welcome back more year groups when the local and national government guidance advises us to do so.
Additional information can be found in the attached letters. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at school by phone, email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or private FB message.
Take care and keep safe.
Mr Smith and the Mossgate team
