Welcoming our pupils back to school
After many months, I am delighted to see our network of schools re-opening their doors to all pupils this week.
It has been a challenging time and our staff have been working tirelessly over the summer to ensure every school is as Covid-safe as possible.
With Government guidelines changing all the time, we are constantly checking advice and acting on it - while considering the specific needs and requirements of each school.
Each head teacher is working closely with their communities to make sure that every decision made is in the best interests of staff, pupils and their families.
All our schools will provide regular updates on individual safety measures and new procedures, with staff always on hand to talk to parents/carers about any concerns or queries they may have.
While we don't know exactly what may lie ahead in terms of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, as a Trust we are absolutely committed to ensuring continuity of learning for all our children - while taking all the necessary steps to protect our communities.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
With kindest regards,
Dr Sam Parrett OBE
CEO, London South East Academies Trust
