CEO Update - 3rd July 2020 

Dear Parents and Carers, 
 
If you have been following the national news, you will know that yesterday the Department for Education released its “Guidance for full opening – schools”. 
Sections of the guidance had been previously leaked, so some elements come as no surprise. Other aspects of the guidance have been very selectively reported: this has not always been helpful. It is, of course, highly likely that this guidance will be altered or supplemented before the Autumn. Local conditions may also necessitate additional constraints, as has been the case in Leicester – let us hope not. 
 
The full 35 pages are publicly available. I and your child’s headteachers, read them very closely, paying careful attention to what schools ‘must’ do (requirements) as distinct from ways in which schools ‘might’ achieve it (guidance). 
 
Our duty continues to be to ensure the requirement that ‘Schools must do everything possible to minimise contacts and mixing while delivering a broad and balanced curriculum’. There are many different ways that might be achieved and headteachers have discussed this at length with me and amongst themselves. 
 
For now, we will continue to plan for as normal a delivery of the school provision as possible, albeit adapted to suit the needs of the your children and to concentrate on ensuring the focus is on the mental health and well-being of the children and staff.  
 
Staff, in due course, will be involved in what will become the offer for September and in the organisation of this offer. The headteachers have also already begun work on further risk assessments in line with the DfE document. 
As well as this, we will be developing a contingency plan that allows us to adapt, at short notice, should a local lockdown become necessary. Again, this will be shared with you when it is worked through.  
 
I would ask for your further patience at this point because, as mentioned above, the guidance will undoubtedly change again before the end of the summer. The headteachers and I do not intend finalising these exact details until all the details are known and this could well be at the beginning of the autumn term. You will, I am sure, appreciate that we have already had to put together numerous plans and alter them as has been necessary to date. I do not consider it helpful to publish and then withdraw even more proposals one after another.

Throughout this unprecedented period, we have asked that staff all fully continue to fulfil their normal professional duties: as a team, they have been and continue to be superb.  You and your children have been overwhelmingly impressed and appreciative and have told staff, headteachers and indeed me, on numerous occasions. None more so than when staff have used the precious time they have available to make your children’s learning at school and at home as interesting and exciting as possible.  
 
You too have told us how much you have enjoyed working with and supporting your children throughout this time. Both of these aspects must be the real bonuses of this difficult and challenging period.   
 
Your headteachers and I will be in touch again in the very near future with appropriate updates and, as always, if you have any queries or questions, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher initially.  
 
Wishing you and your family good health and continued safety at this time.  
 
Kind regards  
 
Ruth Brock | Chief Executive Officer

Coronavirus - School Updates:

The school is currently working to prepare for the possible re-opening of the school for more pupils in June. To see the guidance that the school is following to do this, please go to the government website: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-implementing-protective-measures-in-education-and-childcare-settings/coronavirus-covid-19-implementing-protective-measures-in-education-and-childcare-settings 


Free School Meals

Could your child and the school be missing out on vital additional funding during this already difficult time?

Due to the current climate and probability that some households may have unfortunately lost their income or be on a considerably reduced income, we thought it was a good time to check if your child may now qualify for FSM. If you are in receipt of any of the benefits listed you may be eligible to help with the cost of food for your child, while the school is closed through free school meal vouchers. The school would receive additional funding for your child to provide extra support and resources and help with the cost of food

Welcome

Welcome to the Richmond Avenue Primary School and Nursery website.

At Richmond, we want to provide a purposeful, well-balanced curriculum in an interesting environment, which stimulates learning, encouraging reflective children to have the independence and self-confidence to live and learn, now and in the future. 

Our aim is to create a rich learning environment, enabling every pupil to fulfil his or her potential.

We are committed to the highest possible educational standards, with a matching concern for the personal growth and development of each pupil.

 

Coronavirus Updates 

If your child has a temperature of 37.8 or over or develops what appears to be a 'new' cough then they will need to isolate for FOURTEEN days along with ALL MEMBERS OF THEIR HOUSEHOLD.

This obviously means not coming into school. Please follow this advice clearly rather than phoning the school to ask our opinion as this is advice which has been given by the Prime Minister himself. The only reason you would need to phone the school would be to inform us of your families initial isolation.
