Tapton School Academy Trust

Update from Tapton School Academy Trust - 21st May 2020

Our response to Government plans to open schools to more students, from 1st June at the earliest. 

On Sunday 10th May the Government announced its Covid-19 recovery strategy, which includes an intention for primary schools to open to more pupils from 1st June at the earliest, and for secondary schools to offer some students face to face consultations before the summer.  
We believe that the best place for our children is to be in school and learning, however fundamental to our Trust values is that all our community remain safe.

We have been in discussion with the Department for Education, Sheffield City Council, Trustees and Trade Unions, in order to confirm our response to the Government plans, and can now confirm our approach to a phased re-opening of our schools to the identified year groups.

The letter below contains the Trust strategic principles around phased re-opening. Each of our schools will be working within these principles, and providing further specific guidance to their communities. 

We also attach a letter from Sheffield City Council, confirming the city's approach.
