We’re all relieved that things are starting to get back to normal at long last, and it’s great to have children and young people back in classrooms, but there’s still a need to be careful and not take the easing of restrictions for granted.
School attendance is now mandatory again for pupils of compulsory school age and registered at schools. The usual rules on school attendance apply.
Some anxiety remains, of course, among both children and adults. This remains a difficult time and we are all very well aware that Covid-19 persists. If you are concerned, please contact the headteacher at your individual Ebor school so we can provide support. We want to work with you to ease these worries. School is, without doubt, the best place for children and young people for social as well as academic reasons.
All our schools continue to monitor their risk assessments and social distancing measures remain in operation, including the wearing of face coverings at primary level by adults in well-populated areas and at secondary phase by all students as well as teachers and support staff. We will continue to minimise opportunities for transmission of the virus and know we can rely on the continued support from our school communities to work together for everyone’s benefit.
