Chalfont Valley Academy will be reopening its doors to transitional year groups on June 8, the children will be back on a part time basis, going to school only two days a week.
The days students will have to attend classes will be staggered, this is to keep all the staff and children safe within the school and to keep the risk of infection to a minimum.
In a letter to the parents Mrs Tucker, headteacher, wrote: “ We are mindful that everyone’s experiences of lockdown have been different, and we understand that these procedures may sound extreme, but our commitment to ensuring a safe work space is crucial.
“Here in school we have to ensure that we put into place procedures and practices which will keep the potential of any virus spreading to a minimum.With more adults and more children within the school environment at any one time, it is important that we keep the risks of contamination low.”
To ensure this, the school has created an isolation room, which will be used to keep any child or adult who is exhibiting any symptoms whilst in school, until they can go home.
Additionally the school will need to observe some social distancing practices and regular cleaning and hygiene practises.
Children will also be taught in smaller groups with two adults in the younger year groups.
