Delay with DfE Guidance for the planned September return to school

Dear Parents & Carers,

I have been informed that the DfE will be officially releasing guidance on the planned September return to school for all primary aged children, later this week.

This continues to be an extremely frustrating position for all of the team in school as we had hoped to have had more information at this stage of the term.


You may well have read some of the 'leaked information' in the media today but we will require far more detail to ensure we are fully prepared to meet the needs of all of our children in September. 


Subsequently, we are unable to finalise our plans, share any of these with you or answer any of your questions at the moment.

Please be assured that as soon as we are able, we will provide all families with detailed guidance on how the return to Oakham will look and work in September.

In the meantime, I will continue to work with the Senior Leadership Team and Governing Body to prepare for September, in anticipation of the DfE release.

Thank you for your ongoing support and understanding.

Nick Skett
