Dear Parents and Friends,


We do hope that you and your loved ones are keeping safe and well, and enjoyed a happy and peaceful Eid.


We are writing to let you know that Sir William Burrough will reopen for Year 6 and children of Key Workers on June 15th. If you fall into one of those groups, please fill in this form to let us know whether your child will be returning on that date. Please also ensure that you have filled in the updated contacts form above as we will need to send you more detailed information regarding the safety and wellbeing of your child when they return to school.


At the current time, we will not be reopening for Nursery, Reception and Year 1. We will only do so when national and local levels of risk are significantly lower, and we are confident that we can manage and mitigate the risks involved.


For all children for whom the school is not reopening, online learning at the SWB online learning website will continue.


As the national context is continuously changing, together with the scientific and medical advice to schools, please be aware that this situation may change at any time.


With warmest wishes from


Avril, Staff and Governors.
