On Tuesday, Gavin Williamson (the Education Secretary) announced that schools who have the capacity to bring back more children in smaller class sizes can do so before the summer holiday. Things did get a bit confusing on Wednesday evening when PM Johnson announced that there was no longer an intention to bring back primary pupils prior to the summer. However, we have confirmed arrangements with West Sussex and they are happy for us to have Year 2 to Year 5 back, with slightly different organisation for Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 explained below, something that we are very much looking forward to.

In the current climate, I thought I would write a shorter, more regular newsletter to keep you up-to-date. We are now into the second week of Reception , Year 1 and Year 6 returning to school and, so far, it couldn't have gone any better. The plans we had put in place are running smoothly, children have settled back into school life quickly and it’s lovely to see the learning, playing and socialising.

Welcome to our June letter which is just a short update, and a very special welcome to parents from other schools who are reading this. I know our previous newsletter was widely shared around Horsham. It’s lovely that there was such interest in what Kingslea were doing and I understand that it is only natural, in the current circumstances, to compare what different schools are doing. However, please remember each school is unique, with different staffing structures, buildings and capacity, but all are doing their best for their community.
