Dear Parents/Carers,                                                                                          10.6.20

Following the government briefing about schools on 9.6.20 we are now able to make decisions in relation to the remaining weeks of the summer term.

Before explaining our intentions we understand that our options will not suit the individual needs of all of our parents/carers and children. Unfortunately, we are still directed by social distancing, class sizes and availability of staff (Pelsall Village has a number of staff who, following guidelines, are still required to isolate). We therefore politely ask for your understanding when reading the following information:

  1. On June 22nd we are hoping to offer more places for Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 children. We are unable to offer additional Nursery places due to staffing restrictions.

Parent action – Please email or telephone the office 01922682073 to confirm that you would like a place for your child starting on June 22nd. This must be done before 3:00p.m on Friday 12th June.

School action – Over the weekend of 13th, 14th we will then decide whether or not it is possible to increase the Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 groupings, based on safety, classroom space and staffing restrictions. We will then inform parents of our decision on Monday 15th June.


  1. Dependent on the number of Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 children returning on June 22nd we will then look to offer places for our current Year 5 children. The transition from Year 5 to Year 6 is very important in relation to the end of primary school. This will give the children an opportunity to work with their teachers for next year and support transition.

School action – Following the organisation of Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 children intake on June 22nd we will then decide whether we can offer places to Year 5. If this is possible, we will then contact Year 5 parents individually on Tuesday 16th June.


  1. It is extremely unlikely that Y2, 3 and 4 children will be able to return until September unless we have previously contacted you about your child’s EHCP or vulnerability status. However, this week we have started some virtual lessons using Zoom. These will continue but from June 22nd there will be greater availability of lessons for Y2, 3 and 4 children.

Parent action – Providing you have access to the technology, support your children in accessing these on line lessons organised by our teachers.

School action – We will provide dates and times and connection details of all lessons on class pages on our website.


  1. We will continue to run our Key Worker group for Y2, 3 and 4 children only, providing we are able to provide places for Year 5 children. It will not be possible to provide before and after school club for children starting on June 22nd.




  1. Towards the end of term we are planning to provide the opportunity for every parent/carer and child to come in to school to collect their end of year report from their teacher and also meet their teacher for next year. To do this, we would spread these across a whole week, giving a whole day to each year group. We would provide each child with a time slot during the designated day. We envisage this taking place in the school hall. We hope this will be an opportunity, although small, for some children to re-establish their relationship with our school.  


These have been very difficult times, through which Pelsall Village school have endeavoured to support our children and parents as much as possible. We are planning the RESTART in September with a promotion of ‘Love of Learning’ a very high priority.

Thank you for your support.
