Back to school safely
We are looking forward to a return to school for pupils on Monday 7th September. It’s been an unsettling six months for us all, and our children have needed to adjust to life without their school routine and regular contact with classmates, teachers and friends.
We know all schools are excited to have pupils back and are looking forward to learning together again. School is the place to be for a number of reasons.
Going to school is vital for your child’s:
- Educational development
- Mental and physical wellbeing • Social development
- Sense of routine
That said, we understand that this will be a worrying time, and you may be feeling anxious about the re-opening of schools and sending your children back.
We can assure you that the health and safety of children, school staff and their families is our top priority. We want to reassure you that schools in Lewisham have spent the summer holidays putting in place a number of measures to protect children, staff and families and help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
