Letter from HCC

Please read the attached letter from Hertfordshire County Council regarding school places for eligible families.

Since the beginning of Lockdown, pupil numbers at Bowmansgreen have risen from 55 to over 130. Whilst we will continue to provide places for eligible families, we have reached a point where we are having to review the organisation of classes, staff and timetables, to maintain the health and safety of all pupils and staff.

The overriding message from the Department of Education (DfE) and Hertfordshire County Council (HCC) is for families to stay at home whenever possible, to help reduce the spread of coronavirus within the community.

We know that current Lockdown measures are contributing to a stressful, pressurised balancing act for many households – with or without remote learning – and we will try our best to support families during this difficult period.

We look forward to being able to welcome all pupils back to school as soon as it is safe to do so and restrictions are lifted. In the meantime, we ask for your continued support in limiting the number of pupils attending school every day and protecting members our school community.
