Coventry City Council Letter
Our city’s schools will next week re-open to all pupils and we are looking forward to welcoming your child/children back and helping them to continue with their education.
In Coventry we are fortunate to have wonderful schools, with excellent and dedicated teachers and staff and we believe that all children need to return to lessons, not only so they can continue their education, but also for their own mental and physical wellbeing.
This is as important for young children starting school and learning to play with others, as it is for our older students who are facing critical years where their hard work and exams will help them build the careers they want and deserve.
Conditional Re-opening Plans for Sowe Valley Primary School
Firstly, I hope this letter finds you all safe and well. The staff at Sowe Valley are missing you all! The staff and I would like to thank you for your support and patience during these challenging times.
I am sure you have been anxiously awaiting news regarding our re-opening plans. I have been working hard alongside senior school leaders, all school staff, governors, unions and the Coventry Local Authority with regard to organising our re-opening, also ensuring that the safety of all children and their families, all staff and their families as well as the wider community is at the heart of any plans we make. We are adhering to guidance and taking into consideration other credible reports or guidance from the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (known as SAGE), who also advise Central Government.
