• Statement from CBAT on the full opening of its schools in September
    The government guidance for the full opening of schools, published in June 2020, asks schools to reintroduce as much in-school education as possible with additional precautions to make this as safe as possible. Our schools have been working hard over the summer to put plans in place for full opening to deliver a suitable programme of learning and to develop appropriate risk assessments. Those plans are based on a common-sense approach, following the DfE guidance wherever possible, and providing effective education provision whilst maintaining health and safety for our staff and young people. The Board of Trustees met on Tuesday 18th August to review plans and risk assessments and gave their approval for Berkeley Primary School, Cam Woodfield Junior School and Marling School to open as planned believing that all reasonable steps had been taken to safeguard the health of our pupils and staff. The Trust Board has been hugely impressed by the way CBAT staff have supported our pupils throughout lockdown and how they have prepared for wider opening and they express their thanks to leadership teams, governors and staff for the significant amount of work that has taken place. We now look forward to welcoming back pupils to all of our schools.
