Good morning all,
Late yesterday Lancashire County Council issued guidance to all it's schools informing us that we SHOULD NOT open to more children on June 1st. They have based this guidance on the fact that in their opinion the 5 tests that the government set out for safe opening of schools have not been met. Therefore I am really sorry to tell you that school will not open as planned to children in EYFS on June 2nd. All the staff at The Roebuck were looking forward to welcoming the pupils back as we have missed them, but I am sure you understand that if LCC, my employer, is saying they don't think it is safe yet, then I must adhere to this guidance.
The link to the actual article is below:
I am sure that this is just a postponement and we will enable more children to return soon - the school will continue to remain open for key groups as it has done throughout this pandemic.
New home learning grids will be sent out next week and staff will continue to upload more information and ideas on class Dojo.
Please use the email: FSM@roebuck.lancs.sch.uk to send us a current email address that we can use for your Free School Meal Voucher.
We've created a NHS poster to complete at home that you can download from your homework area or the school homepage. When you have completed your poster, stick them in your window and take a photo. Make sure you upload your pictures to your homework page or put them on Facebook using the hashtag #roebuckhomelearning
We look forward to seeing them!
How to keep safe:

We have set up this page in order to keep you up to date with the latest advice regarding COVID-19. As a school we are approaching the challenge presented by the spread of the virus as proactively as we can. Delay underpins all current strategy and we will continue to follow the advice given as and when it changes.
Our focus in school with all staff and pupils remains centred on hygiene, as this is proven factually to be the most effective way of limiting the spread of germs and the virus. Personal hygiene is the most important way we can contain COVID-19.
Washing hands with soap and water, 5 or more times a day for 20 seconds (the same amount of time it takes to sing ‘happy birthday’ twice) remains one of the most important ways of reducing the chance of infection.
Using tissues when coughing and/or sneezing is also essential. PHE have been advising of the importance of correct coughing and sneezing etiquette with the ‘Catch it, Kill it, Bin it’ campaign. Please could you ensure your child comes to school with a packet of pocket tissues so they can ensure good personal hygiene.
