                                         FOLLOWING GOVERNMENT GUIDANCE, THE SCHOOL IS CLOSED                        TO ALL PUPILS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

Please see below an important note from Mrs S Matthews, Headteacher 


Tuesday 19th May 2020

Dear Parents and Carers,

Further to my letter last week, I am writing to keep you updated on our plans to reopen St Paul’s.

It is now a week since the Prime Minister’s announcement that schools will be asked to open to increased numbers of pupils from 1st June. Regretfully, we did not receive all of the information that we needed to ensure that we could plan to open our sites safely to more pupils until Sunday, leaving us very little time to plan.

One thing that is clear when taking all of the guidance in to account, is that St Paul’s does not have the physical space or staffing capacity to safely open for all groups of pupils identified by the Prime Minister (keyworker pupils, vulnerable pupils, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6).

As such, the governors and I have made the decision to only open St Paul’s for keyworker children (as identified in the original key worker list) and specific pupils that are identified by the school as needing a space. In order to ensure that we can staff the school safely, these spaces will have to be prebooked and agreed with us ahead of time.

If you are a keyworker and will require a space for your child, you must complete and return the education provision assessment form. Please click on the link below here to download a copy. This must be returned to with all details completed no later than Thursday 21st May. Please note that if you already have a keyworker place at Tredworth Junior School, you do not need to complete the form again.

We are then aiming to invite Year 6 back in to school starting in the week beginning 8th June and will be writing separately to Year 6 parents with further details. It is important for parents and pupils to be aware that many things e.g. drop off/collection times/class/group arrangements will not be “normal”. We will be talking to the children about this more before they return so that they know what to expect. We are not expecting to be able to invite Phase 1 pupils back in to St Paul’s until further notice.

It is important to stress that any re-opening of the school for Year 6 is subject to confirmation that it is safe to do so.

Thank you so much for your patience and support over the last few weeks. It is really appreciated.

"Pupils say school is a happy place. They talk convincingly about having a good education for their future lives. They are proud of their school, and believe strongly that it is a good school."


 "One pupil likened school to the stem of a large family tree with many different branches."
